Equal Exchange Fairly Traded Interfaith Store

On the second Sunday of every month, the Sustainable Living Committee sells coffee, tea, chocolate and olive oil from the Equal Exchange Fairly Traded Interfaith Store. All product descriptions below are from the interfaith store website.

Why do we do this? Through our Equal Exchange Interfaith store, our congregation can enjoy delicious fairly-traded products while supporting small-scale farmers across the world. Farmers earn a fair price for their products, have access to affordable credit and can invest in education, health care and sustainable agriculture, enabling them to build a better future for their families.

Everything we sell is organic unless it is not offered, such as with the flavored coffees. And these are shade-grown coffees, which are much more environmentally viable than the alternative. We also serve fair-trade, organic, shade-grown coffee after Sunday services and all-church events.

Coffee Descriptions

The strength of a coffee depends upon its ratio of grounds to coffee. On the other hand, the roast blend of a coffee is about flavor. The Roasts in our Equal Exchange coffees are mentioned below are:

Medium Roast (the lightest roast here, closest to an American roast)
Full City Roast (the beans are roasted to a rich brown color and the coffee begins to acquire a slightly bittersweet “burnt” flavor with a variety of subtle flavors detectable)
Vienna Roast (the beans are roasted to a moderate dark brown color and the coffee is bittersweet with a heavier body)
French Roast (the beans are roasted to dark brown color and the coffee has deep burnt undertones with most of the subtle nuances faded into the deeper flavor)
Espresso: If you wish to make your own espresso, choose the beans with a roast that will offer you the flavor you prefer. Grind the beans to a very fine grind and then run them through your espresso machine.
