Indigo is a certified fair trade roaster committed to offering a full line of fair trade coffees. Fair Trade is an innovative approach to empowering developing world farmers who are typically disadvantaged in conventional trade. Through fair prices, direct trade, access to credit and environmental stewardship, Fair trade helps farming families improve their nutrition and healthcare, keep their kids in school and re-invest in their farms. Fair trade guarantees these farmers a minimum price per pound for their harvest, regardless of the volatile world coffee market. Premiums are paid for quality, and Indigo pays far above the minimum price in our search for outstanding taste profiles.
Furthermore, Fair Trade coffee is grown by farmers with a tradition of excellence going back generations. Fair Trade enables these farmers to continue giving their crops the care that produces quality, even during times of market instability.
Indigo is certified by FairTrade USA, a non-profit certification agency. FairTrade USA monitors adherence to internationally recognized fair trade standards, verifying claims of social responsibility through independent third-party audits to insure transparency. Baystate Organic Certifiers conducts our yearly audit.
