Fair trade in Minnesota

Minnesota has been a leader in the fair trade movement, with several local roasters that engage in fair trade relationships. Learn about these roasters and the beans they sell in bulk.

The Twin Cities area offers lots of cozy cafes and unique coffee shops that specialize in fair trade coffee. Discover one of these specialty stores in either Minneapolis or St. Paul.

If you aren’t ready to venture out and find one of these tiny shops, check out the information about chain coffee stores that sell fair trade brews.
