Guide to purchasing fair trade coffee

Look for this symbol from retailers and on packages of coffee. This is the official symbol of TransFair USA, the only fair trade labeling organization in the United States.

Some coffee may be labeled as organic or shade-grown with additional symbols. This coffee is likely to be fair trade certified, but only products with the “fair trade certified” symbol are guaranteed to be fair trade.
