Cuckoo for Cocoa


Americans spend $13 billion on cocoa products every year, but the families who are working hard to grow that cocoa earn a fraction of the price they deserve. Make a commitment this Fair Trade month to start buying cocoa products that are as good for the earth and for cocoa farmers as they are delicious. We recommend Organic Hot Cocoa Mix from Equal Exchange. The cocoa for this yummy mix comes from CONACADO Cocoa Coop, a group of 9,000 small-scale farmers in the Dominican Republic who grow crops with shade-farming and chemical-free methods. Order a 12oz container for $6.50, from Equal Exchange’s online store. Happiness is a mug of steaming hot, organic, Fair Trade cocoa on a cold autumn day.
