53x11 Coffee is proud to support the farmers and their families that grow the coffee we enjoy. We buy only Fair Trade, organic coffees.
Why Fair Trade?
The Fair Trade certification indicates that the coffee farmers receive a minimum price for their crop (they are also paid a premium for certified organic goods.) The coffee importer sources directly from the coffee farms and farmer groups, which shortens the supply chain and ensures the “fair price.” The greater return on coffee allows for the farmers to reinvest in the quality of their farms and the surrounding communities. Beyond price, Fair Trade means that the farms are safe for their workers (no child labor, living wages, etc.) It encourages sustainable farming and prohibits the use of chemicals and pesticides that hurt the environment and the crop. By buying Fair Trade coffee and produce, we can support these initiatives.

Why Certified Organic?
With coffee being a highly chemically treated crop, we feel it’s important to buy certified organic. The chemicals from conventionally grown coffees are harmful to us as consumers and the workers that are faced with them everyday. Our coffees are certified organic by Quality Assurance International and abide by the U.S. National Organic Program standards (there are links below if you would like to learn more.) This means that they are grown without pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals, which benefits the coffee producers and the consumers. For larger crop yield without chemicals, the growers use sustainable farming methods (crop rotation, terracing, composting, etc.) This results in richer soil, greater biodiversity, and healthier ecosystems. Certified organic coffee not only benefits our health, but it also supports the environment. By purchasing our coffees you are choosing to make a difference towards a more sustainable way of life for everyone.

Love the taste of this blend!
Add organic, pasteurized whipping cream! Yum! Dessert for breakfast and all day!
This coffee helps me get going ever y day. I've given this to friends and they love it too.
Was satisfied with the product. I order lots of specialty coffee and this was very comparable. Not too much berry which seems to be a trend, appreciated. Tastes like "real coffee" but not at all over-roasted. Will order again.
The coffee is good but over priced for what you get. Organic all you want but it boils down to the taste and there is better out there
If I buy it ground is it for the French press? I'm new to French press and heard it needs to be a courser grind.
