A good 80% of the coffee that we drink daily has been grown from 25 millions of small producers in the farming areas of Brazil, Vietnam, Columbia and Indonesia. The instability of market prices, the higher and higher production costs, the lack of basic services (schools, hospitals, transport and electric power), joined with climate change, make the daily work of those farmers always more difficult. For this reason TORREFAZIONE CAFFE' GOURMET has opted the FAIRTRADE certification in association to his AMA blend. This certificate makes sure that an equal price to the producers, a mark-up to invest in developing projects of the communities (Fairtrade Premium) and a technical support for practices of sustainable cultivations and for the quality's improvement of the product is guaranteed. A conversion to the organic is also sustained: AMA blend is BIO, too.
FAITRADE means respect of the human rights and of nature, but also quality and love for those who make their job with passion. We of TORREFAZIONE CAFFE' GOURMET, who put so much love and passion in what we do, could not miss this appointment!
The organic farming certification has been issued to TORREFAZIONE CAFFÈ GOURMET because, during each phase of the production process, we have complied with a set of norms established by the Italian Ministry for Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies.
The audits have covered all sections of the production cycle, from the start of production, to processing and storage.
For us at TORREFAZIONE CAFFÈ GOURMET, Organic means Loving: not just Nature, but also future generations, to make sure their future is better and healthier.
