The Latest Bzz: Green Mountain Coffee

If you believe nothing gets your morning off to a better start than a great cup of coffee AND you believe that coffee growers deserve a fair price for the hard work that goes into bringing you that satisfaction, give Green Mountain Coffee a try. This Fair Trade Certified coffee is a pioneer in the Fair Trade movement, ensuring that farmers not only get a fair price for their beans, but also that their surrounding communities see the benefits.

As part of my awesome BzzAgent gig, I received three pots' worth of their House Blend in the mail yesterday. We brewed the first one this morning. My hubby and I agreed: "Not bad. Not bad at all."
We prepared this particular package, recommended for 8 cups, in our 10 cup maker. If you like a stronger brew, I'd suggest using the 8 cups. We like ours a little milder, so it turned out perfectly for our tastes! Keurig fans will be excited to know that Green Mountain is the leading K-Cup brand.

You can find Green Mountain Coffee in most grocery stores, plus your local Wal-Mart, Target, and online at  Use this code: PASSIT-ON to get $2 off your online order there!


  1. Begs the question, just how fair trade are they. A leading coffee outlet here in the UK, while expounding that their product only contained fair trade beans, it turned out that less than 2% was fair trade.

    1. I wonder that too, and I was a bit discouraged that they don't actually require their farmers to grow with fair trade practices, only that they actively seek those who do.

      I do hope, however, that the practices are improving for all involved.
