  • Organic and fair trade Higher ground Mocha Java Coffee The Mocha Java Blend is named for two of the world's most famous coffee-growing regions, and the result is a mouth-watering African-Indonesian fusion of beans. Identified by its floral bouquet and wine-like tendencies, this dark robust roast features a silky-smooth finish with subtle notes of caramel and is rated 4.5 beans in ROASTe customer reviews.  

Higher Ground prides itself on its coffees that are all organic, Fair Trade, and shade-grown. Allowing the growers to keep their family farms, the Fair Trade certification ensures that these farmers benefit from                economic and educational programs, while giving them the chance to grow a high-quality organic bean. The coffee plants grow in the forest canopy's shade—guaranteeing the continued survival of the forests      and natural habitat for countless plant and animal species. 

  • Joe Bean's Guatemala Chajul Organic Fair Trade Coffee will satisfy the Mom who loves her chocolate but cares about doing the right thing for the planet and all that lives on it. This rich and tantalizing medium roasted coffee with caramel notes from Joe Bean Coffee Roasters was rated 4.5 out of 5 beans by our customers who said it is a "perfect breakfast cup," with a definite "chocolaty after-taste," and that she chooses to drink it black without anything added as "its flavor doesn't need any help.
  • Klatch House Espresso Fair Trade Organic, with its great taste and clean finish, is super sweet, suggesting hints of cocoa, nut, caramel and citrus. "Woman's Journal" selected this Espresso, rated 4 beans by ROASTe customers, as best espresso. For an extra bonus, pair this coffee or any selection with a big box of 70 % cocoa bittersweet dark chocolate, and your Mom will believe you are the wisest child ever born.
