Why we love it

Did you know hot chocolate hasn't always been sweet? When the earliest recorded chocolate drink was first developed by the Maya, it had quite the spicy kick. Just like this one does. For centuries since then, people have come up with their own hot chocolate recipes. This one from Equal Exchange brings heat and warmth from both the cup and the spices.

How it does good

A closer connection between people and farmers

The tea, cocoa, and coffee farming industries are at the highest risk for worker exploitation and contributing to deforestation. For standard brands, these supply chains are notoriously lacking in transparency. That’s why Equal Exchange created a fair trade model that cuts out the middleman. Instead, they focus on direct, transparent trade with farmers and cooperatives. They work in collaboration with Root Capital and other organizations to help build farmer cooperative training programs. A USAID partner, Equal Exchange is heavily engaged in farmer cooperative capacity development, bringing technical assistance to in-country growers to help increase productivity, reliability and ultimately success in a global market.

  • supporting key causes

    Equal Exchange donates 10% of their annual profits to organizations that align with their mission. They also direct grants to farmer cooperatives to work on projects ranging from investing in coffee tree nurseries to creating beekeeping collectives for farmers so they can diversify their crops and income.
  • responsible sourcing

    By using fair and direct trade practices along with organic farms, Equal Exchange makes sure their supply chains are creating a better place for people and the planet.
