In America our shopping habits can change the lives of starving people in Africa and other parts of the world. Buying through fair trade guarantees that the farmers/producers of the products get paid. So to help someone in my world community eat I am buying fair trade coffee from http://www.lwrcoffee.com/
$33.75 total (that includes the cost of shipping) for *five* 1 lb bags of ground coffee.
