Fair Trade is a cooperative system that is set up in third world countries that enforces and governs the cost of produce. The secret to a good coffee is to not over roast and burn the beans, so that you don’t start with an over-roasted bean that all the oils are going out of as that is what you want in your coffee. “That's the kind of customer I want, one who appreciates artisan, hand-roasted coffee,” Franklin says. “I'm proud that my whole business is fair-trade organic, so I'm helping the people who grow it, too.”
