Bean There Fair Trade Coffee

April 23, 2012

Are you a fan of coffee and Fair Trade? Well, then you need to get down to Wale Street and visit Bean There. This lovely coffee shop roasts it’s own beans which they acquire through direct fair trade which means that the coffee producers receive a fair payment for their coffee through equal engagement, regardless of market fluctuations. Just knowing that the coffee is ethically sourced and produced, actually does make it taste better. The coffee shop has a fun and playful feel with bright pops of colour and interesting decor. Aren’t the hanging lampshades great?! You can find out more about their coffees here and actually buy online too.

    Hello ms great photos!

    Loving this place – feels so fresh and inviting.
    Those timber chunks / tables are fantastic. Love the glossy bright outsides and the natural wood cores!

    The bike on the wall is also great, as is the whole concept of organic and fair trade. My fave combo and a life I try to lead in all areas.

    Thank you for sharing. I am loving your snapshots!

    Hugs from the North!

    xx Charlotta

    Every new retail store devoted to fair trade is a step in the right direction. I don’t know when I’ll ever get to visit Bean There – but if I’m ever in the area I certainly will =)
