Coffee with Pleasure free pdf How Fair Trade can Tackle the Injustices of the Global Coffee Trade- Using the example of the world coffee trade, Laure Waridel shows how the current global trading system perpetuates poverty and injustice, and explains how the alternative system known as 'fair trade' can break the cycle of exploitation and environmental destruction. Coffee With Pleasure looks at the fair trade movement by examining the issues surrounding the production and trading of coffee. Using Mexico as an example, part one describes the conventional coffee trade, tracing the bean's journey from the tree, through the hands of several intermediaries in both North and South America, to its final destination as a cup of coffee. Part two then goes on to present the fair trade concept through the example of the Mexican peasant organisation which was one of the first to embrace the fair trade system, and which was also a pioneer in the production of organic coffee. The final part then explores the situation of fair trade in North America, and also provides comprehensive sources and references for readers who want to get involved, at any level.
