Level Ground Trading's vision is to alleviate poverty in developing countries through Direct Fair Trade. To complete that mission, they trade fairly and directly with small-scale producers in developing countries, offering customers ethical choices.
Level Ground Trading purchase coffee from the Fero Co-op of the Sidama Coffee Farmers’ Union. The co-op has approximately 3000 member farmers. The co-op has 3 washing stations several km apart, and 11 buying posts for purchase of cherries. All of the cherries are processed at the three co-op washing stations. Processed coffee is sent via truck to Addis for milling and grading, and then is sent to the port of Djibouti, which is a 600 km drive from Addis.

Definitely delicious, I will alternate now because I cannot decide which I like better this or the Peru. Plus I like knowing that every time I get coffee I’m helping just a little bit.
This is a great medium roast!
Great coffee and company
The whole bean coffee has great aroma and flavors! And I love what this company stands for.
OK, but certainly not the best I have had. It lacks highlight flavor notes and aromas.
Thank you for your review. We have found that the pre-ground coffee does lose some of the highlights that make the coffee great. You would be able to experience these better by purchasing whole bean next time.
