    Utz Kapeh -- What is it?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,
    I have had a few "what is Utz Kapeh" queries after listing this months Brazilian Monte Alegre coffee which comes with the "Utz Kapeh" Certification.

    This is one of the better certification schemes around the world and while it is still fairly rare in Australia it is huge in Europe and worth further reading.

    This is the specific Utz Kapeh information about the grower Monte Alegre http://www.utzkapeh.org/index.php?pageID=141&subID=9003

    And Fairtrade have produced a good comparison between Utz Kapeh and Faritrade:

    Hope this clears it up a little,

    Andy.

    Its one of a small number of ***fair trade movement*** organisations, but not called "fair trade" because of fair trade movement organisational leftie politik.

    My roasting company supports ***fair trade movement*** coffees of whatever denomination and puts them in all our blends...irrespective of fair trade leftie politikal correctness and use of certain "brand specific" brand names.

    If you leave it to consumers to ASK for fair trade movement coffee the movement would be dead and buried....you will only get a big turnover of "socially responsible" coffee if roasters use it in mainstream blending (subject to quality considerations) whether they advertise the fact or not....

    Politikal soap box over.....

    Regardz,
