My name is Carly Kadlec and I have been with Equal Exchange for just over two months. I am a Green Coffee Buyer. I just returned from my first big trip to visit coffee farmers in Peru and Bolivia.

The result: Cooperation in Quality 2013.

Is this possible in a world where most people can’t even eat this way in their home?
