The story of our coffee begins by selecting only the finest, ethically sourced beans. Our Fairtrade Certified coffees ensure better prices for farmers and their families while maintaining decent working conditions and sustainability for the local communities. Our hand selected coffees voyage converges in McLaren Vale, South Australia, "by the sea" or as we say "Dal Mare". Dal Mare Coffee is hand roasted, using old family techniques, combined with modern technology to bring out a fine harmony of aroma and flavour in every cup. All our blends and single origin coffees boast a premium flavour which can only be created by meticulous hand selection and artisan techniques. We aim to indulge and excite your senses with every cup. Think of us as your own personal coffee roaster.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. Today, more than six million people - farmers, producers, workers and their families - in 70 countries benefit from the unique, independent Fairtrade system. Fairtrade provides farmers and workers in developing countries with a fair price (the Fairtrade Price) for their produce, helping protect them from damaging fluctuations in world market prices. They also receive an additional sum of money (the Fairtrade Premium) for investment in social, economic and environmental development in their community, such as educational and medical facilities. Fairtrade Certification standards also prohibit the use of forced and abusive child labour.
