Caza Trail Donut Shop Coffee ~ Perfect for Cold Winter Days #MC #Sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sturm Foods, Inc. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating.


I am not a hot coffee drinker, but maybe someday I will start. I am not sure where you live, but where I live, it is starting to get cold. Of course I live in California, so my cold is nowhere close to your cold, but to me, it is cold! I turn to a cup of hot tea when the weather cools off; so I can imagine that coffee drinkers turn to their favorite coffee.


It is also nice to steal some alone time with my hot beverage. Caza Trail offers a variety of coffee blends, including the Donut Shop. The come in single size servings which is great for people on the go or if you are the only one in your home who drinks coffee. You can also locate all the Caza Trail varieties on their Amazon page.


My husband drinks coffee, so single serve is perfect for him. Caza Trail single serve containers are compatible with the Keurig K-Cup Brewer. If you don’t have a K-Cup Brewer, then you can still drink this by making it in a French Press or filtering out the grounds after you add your hot water. I believe 1 K-Cup to 2 cups hot water is what you should start with. I might try this and make an iced coffee, but a cold drink doesn’t sound appetizing right now!


Check out and stay warm this winter!

Trade as One ~ Organic Fair Trade Tea and Coffee {Review/Sponsor Spotlight} #CoffeeTeaRevue


When I go shopping now, I look for items that are Fair Trade certified or show that the company is fairly paying their employees and laborers. One company that supports Fair Trade is Trade as One. When I search for tea, coffee and chocolate, I only purchase if the company has fairly paid for their ingredients.


Our mission is to use fair trade to promote sustainable business and break cycles of poverty and dependency in the developing world. We all have a conscience. We want to make sure people get the chance to use it when they shop.


I love their Mission statement. Trade as One truly cares about the well being of everyone, not just the satisfaction of the consumer. Paying fair wages for fair work in third world countries helps people get out of poverty. By buying Fair Trade, you support fair wages. When we are driven to just consume without really caring where these products come from, we cast a vote for cheap products and unfair treatment of employees. Our purchases cast votes for the kind of products we want to purchase. Wouldn’t it be great if our spending could aid those in poverty, instead of keep them there?


Here at Trade as One we’re passionate about using our spending to address 3 crises. First, the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It’s an emergency on an unprecedented scale. Second, the problem of human slavery. Fair Trade is about both prevention through employing vulnerable women, and bringing hope and restoration to survivors. Lastly, the problem of extreme poverty. The worst evils in the world are rooted in the desperation of extreme poverty, and Fair Trade employment is a sustainable route out of that desperation.


Trade as One sent me Tea and Coffee, both are Fair Trade certified. I was sent the Organic Green Tea with Essence of Peach from Choice Organic Teas. I love green tea so this was amazing with just an added sweetness of peach! Yummy! I think this would taste good cold too! The Box came with 20 individually wrapped tea bags. Choice Organic Tea was the first company to adopt Fair Trade Certified in the US back in 2000. Half of choice’s production of tea is fair trade. Buying fair trade from Choice means that they can supply their tea pluckers with fair wages and a safe working environment. For example, this supports women on the Korakundah Tea Estate, in the Nilgiri region of India. These women use their wages to help support themselves upon retirement because they will continue to receive a monthly payment when they return to their native villages. You can read more about Choice HERE.








I was sent the Trade as One Peace Blend from the Thanksgiving Coffee Company.  I haven’t tried the coffee yet {and probably never will}, but I am sure my husband will love it! This whole bean coffee is made in Uganda and Ethiopia with a blend of rich dark berry flavors of sun-dried Ethiopian Sidamo blended with vanilla and nutmeg notes and earthy body of Ugandan Bugisu. In 2003, Ugandan farmer JJ Keki walked door-to-door asking his Muslim, Christian, and Jewish neighbors to unite and face their struggle with poverty caused by exploitation and low coffee prices. The farmers joined together, and founded a cooperative, which would ultimately bring peace and unity to the farmers and workers. You can read more about Thanksgiving Coffee HERE.


If buying Fair Trade is important to you, check out Trade as One to see how you can support companies like Choice Organic Teas and Thanksgiving Coffee. Our purchases affect those that make the products, so vote for fair trade when you can.


You can purchase both coffee and tea, and more Fair Trade items, online at Trade as One. The Choice Organic Teas are $5.99 for a package of 20. The Thanksgiving Coffee Trade as One Peace Blend is a whole bean 12oz pack and is $12.99. The tea comes in many flavors and the coffee comes in regular and decaf. Check out all the Fair Trade products available on Trade as One and remember that every purchase enables a worker to be fairly paid and treated.
