Today, we continue to find new and powerful ways to build a better food system. We partner with co-operatives of farmers who provide high-quality organic coffees, teas, chocolates, bananas and snacks from all over the world. Together we can create stronger local communities, a more just food system and a healthier planet.

I have used Equal Exchange products for several years now and the quality is superb! As a mother I four kids, all under the age of ten, you can imagine the amount of energy it takes to stay on top of everything! I like to start my mornings with a few cups (yes a few) of Equal Exchange Organic French Roast . The flavor is robust, its a dark roast and is full bodied. It's the most heavenly flavored, and perks me up bright and early to get my day started right. I love the flavor & organic is important to me. I don't want a bunch of chemicals in my coffee to distract me from the rich coffee flavor I crave! On lazy Sunday mornings I prefer Equal Exchange Organic Love Buzz coffee for its smooth taste. Its very velvety on the palate and I like to enjoy it with a scone or boscotti! I just placed an order on their website, I refuse to run out!!! I have loved all their products and highly recommend them! Do you have a favorite Equal Exchange product?
