And on to another To-Do List Topic - Coffee... So, we tried this organic and fair trade coffee from Trader Joe's and surprisingly, it was quite good! I have tried one other brand which was terrible and had a mysterious tree bark flavor I just couldn't choke down so I wasn't quite sure how this would go down. But, it was good! Good enough to compel me to stay away from the Starbucks on the way to the office. If you count bringing my daily fix in my reusable thermos, I am well ahead in my green-game! I have one last shipment of coffee coming from my favorite Florida company - Boca Java. We adore this coffee, but our membership will have to go on hold until they add an organic, fair trade product to their line up. I am going to email them with the suggestion, so hopefully it won't be too long! Until then, Trader Joe's you have my coffee dollars!
Update: I received a response from Boca Java! According to the company they recently released an organic Peruvian Roast that is available to members only (me!). I guess I won't have to stop buying my Boca Java after all, but the Trader Joes will certainly do in a pinch! It pays to speak up and email or call the company, you never know what you will find out or inspire a company to change. One person can truly make a difference!
