Fair trade coffee - from Cuzco?
Saw this at the Second Cup today:
Question for the Peruvians: do people really make certifiably organic, fair-trade coffee in Cuzco? Or are Second Cup just using the name "Cuzco" cos that placename makes people think of big hilltop cities and smiling vendors of crafts?
Would I be providing a superior income to nice peasant farmers by buying it?
Yeah, I'm a bit jaded and cynical.
