Coffee? Anyone?

I just gave up coffee. Hence my thinking about it instead of drinking it.

I tried as much as I could to buy organic fairly traded coffee for home. It's superior in smell and flavor, and it's nice to know my daily addiction wasn't exploiting anyone. But, I just put the coffee maker away because I drink too much. I thought I'd switch to just having coffee when I'm out, but that got me thinking about the fact that I never really looked for the same standards 'out' that I set at home. Second Cup is my favourite chain, but I go to Tim Horton's (Tim's is Canadian) and Starbucks too. I never pressed all that much to make sure that the procedures were ethical or environmentally friendly.

How about you?

Yeah, I do much the same. Organic fair trade at home, but I get a cup at Starbucks every Thursday. Buuut ... I also get a cup at my food co-op on Sundays, which is organic fair trade, so I'm still very much MOSTLY O/FT.

I try to look for organic/fair trade on everything I can, even tho I am *SO* addicted to the simplicity and ease of Wal Mart. I have to break that habit. I'm looking forward to when we move and we won't have one within a 10 minute drive anymore. We'll have the better stores closer.
