    I think Laura makes some intersting points and I can see the value in coffee shops buying coffee at source. However, for the domestic consumer whose choice of coffee for home consumption is normally made at the supermarket, the choice is more limited. In my experience, the only way to be sure that the farmer who grew the beans has not been expoited by a multi-national company is to choose one with the Fair Trade logo.

    I would be interested to see estimates in the range of percentages of the world coffee market controlled by direct traders as opposed to the proprtion controlled by Nestle, Sarah Lee, Maxwell House…

    A well researched, written and presented story Laura – Well done. It certainly provides some alternative thinking and strives to keep everyone honest and realistic. Now I have so much more to consider when feeding my coffee and chocolate habits !!
