Blue Fire Coffee

'Coffee is our craft. People are our business.' This is the
motto of Blue Fire Coffee, roasting and selling Fair Trade
and organic coffee. The brother of my fellow Fair Trade
Ambassador Anne runs the business in Hopedale, Massachusetts
about 40 miles southwest of Boston. They are very active in
the community giving back to Grounds for Health, who work to
reduce the risk of cervical cancer in women in developing
countries. Please support Blue Fire Coffee and the small
producers around the world.
