100% ORGANIC, FAIR TRADE, SHADE-GROWN COFFEE
With a full flavor and smooth finish, the Alabama Environmental Council Blend is an excellent dark roast. This coffee is a smoky blend with a strong Guatemalan base and is roasted dark in order to accent its Central American characteristics. All of Higher Ground’s coffees are Fair Trade, organic, and shade-grown.
Fair Trade certification enables the farmers who grow our coffees to keep their family-owned farms and benefit from economic and educational programs, while growing a great organic crop. Our coffees are also grown in the shade of the forest canopy—preserving ancient forests and natural habitat for innumerable species of plants and animals.
Support the conservation and preservation of Alabama's natural environment with your next cup of organic, Fair Trade coffee. As our state's oldest environmental advocacy and education organization, the Alabama Environmental Council has been dedicated to protecting and preserving Alabama's natural habitats for over 40 years. Every time you enjoy the AEC Blend, ten percent of the proceeds assists the Council in protecting Alabama's natural areas, promoting sustainable forestry and resource management, protecting wilderness areas and endangered species, and advocating for clean air and water.
