Great coffee, and Fair Trade, too

The Dark Blend is a flavorful choice. ‘Organic’ making it healthy, and ‘fair trade’ making it a responsible choice. Organic, fair trade, Cafe Altura Coffee brews a great pot of coffee.

Excellence – guilt-free organic coffee

Dark blend, without the burnt taste. At a reasonable price, this is the best available organic coffee. This is the best for my taste; I’ve tried numerous brands.

delicious coffee

At my office we use this coffee. I feel good about it being organic and fair trade, and we like it a lot.
