Fair trade


Fairtrade is a good, but we do Direct trade.

Fairtrade is a good concept to protect farmers'/estates' interests, just like minimal wage in Hong Kong.  But we believe in value for money instead, which encourages farmers/estates to improve quality of their beans for higher price.  We believe this is the way to improve ones living standard, rather than paying someone for something not even worth the minimal price.

This is what other roasters in the rest of the world doing:
