Hint: We're actually on location with this member...sipping iced tea and Local Source baked goods....
Maybe you're nearby and in need of some good fair trade coffee?
Can you guess where we are?
The Basics: Born out of a passion for social justice in Latin America, Just Us! Coffee Roasters Co-op "are a worker co-operative that contributes to a sane world where peoples' needs and the wellbeing of our planet are put before greed." Just Us! partners with coffee co-operatives in Latin America to purchase coffee at a fair price. They operate at 6 locations throughout Nova Scotia from a delightful two-story cafe on Spring Garden Road to a Coffee Roastery and office at the Grand Pre cafe location.
Our efforts are focused on small-scale sustainable agriculture working towards healthy communities and a healthy world. Through our fair trade products and education, we promote awareness on development and trade issues, always looking for a way to be a vehicle for change...Basically, our mission is: People and the Planet before Profits
WHY WE LOVE JUST US!:
- In addition to their great coffee, they run a variety of social projects...
- Their well-defined and transparent values
- The homey feel we get at their cafe...plus there's everything from chocolate to oat cakes to COFFEE (of course!)...what's not to love??
