Ever wondered why coffee keeps you up all night? Well, in some instances it could be down to the coffee, but I've got a different theory - it could be because subconciously you know the farmers that made this stuff in the first place are stricken with poverty. That's right, farmers - even instant coffee starts out being grown by a living, breathing human being. The fact is that Cafe Direct, along with many other products available under the Fair Trade banner, ensures that the farmers producing the crop that goes into this get paid a fair wage for it. Many farmers get dictated to by large multinational organisations who base the price they willpay for the ... Read the complete review

There is no doubt that when we purchase products from poorer countries, especially ones where there is a high level of corruption, we should ensure that the growers get a fair deal. Actually the same could be said of farmers in this country but that is another story. Items that carry the fair trade logo mean that the growers get a fair price for their goods. They are often members of cooperatives which pool a proportion of the money to better the community - such ensuring a healthy water supply, health care and education. This is all very honorable and deep down we all know that this is what we in richer countries should encourage. However, the ... Read the complete review

Part of the fairtrade gang of foods/drinks. I have tried this on several occasions now, indeed I spent a year drinking it as my housemate would buy no other type of coffee! Whilst I think the idea behind giving directly to the growers, I think Café Direct should try and do something about the taste of it, that way they'd sell more and make more money for the growers! The coffee has a sharp, burnt flavour to it. On each occasion I have tried it, be it instant or ground from the bean, it tastes the same. I really don't like the flavour, and have to add two more sugars to the normal one I have, just to make it palatable. I know many people ... Read the complete review

If you want to ensure a better deal for coffee growers in the Third World, then Cafe Direct is an excellent choice. It's a great tasting coffee, mind you, so you won't be losing out on that score. But the main reason why I am now buying Cafe Direct, and why I would recommend it, is because it guarantees a better deal for the Third World producers. The coffee is bought directly from growers' co-operatives, not from middlemen. Moreover, the price is never less than an agreed minimum, however low the world price is. Cafe Direct, combined with the efforts of 'Fairtrade', ensure that countless coffee growers are able to continue, because the ... Read the complete review

While the theory of Cafedirect is commendable the practice lets this theory down badly. Very fewpeople will be willing to pay extra for a a product which is inferior to the middle price brands such as the supermarket own brand medium roast especially as the retail price can be around 25% higher. This is not an undrinakble coffee, however it is preferable to the two brands which seem to dominant the supermarket shelves but maybe people will be better off buying their normal perfered brand and donating the remaining money to charity ...
