Waterbury, VT (NYSE) 21 October 2010
A survey commissioned by Green Mountain Coffee ® shows what would many of us already suspect: that America is a coffee-crazy country. In fact, according to the survey, Green Mountain Coffee’s Fair Trade-out, almost 1 in 10 Americans are “absolutely” off the north shore south shore of the Grand Canyon, 100 miles biking and hiking Mr. Rainier (9% each) to ensure they got their cup per day. And one in six Americans crying on the couch of Oprah Winfrey on live television (16%) or a presence in Jersey Shore (15 %).
In addition, the survey shows
that 1 in 3 Americans say they believe they need every day drinking coffee and an average of 2.6 cups of coffee per day. About 1 in 4 (26%) drank at least four cups per day.
But even with all coffee in America, it seems very few people know much about coffee in his cup, such as where it comes from, and perhaps most importantly, how their decisions can impact on coffee communities around the world. Conducted at the Fair Trade month in October, the Fair Trade-Out Survey examines America’s relationship with coffee and aims to educate coffee drinkers about the benefits of negotiations with their coffee on Fair Trade Certified ™ varieties. Fair Trade guarantees a fair price to coffee farmers for their beans minimum, high quality coffee and a better quality of life in coffee growing communities and livestock.

Negative publicity does not scare these coffee drinkers: About one in six Americans live in tears on the couch of Oprah Winfrey to television (16%) or a presence in Jersey Shore (15%).
More than a quarter of Americans (29%) would “absolutely” pass end zone tickets for the Super Bowl.
Who needs vacation? About 1 / 4 Americans (26%) would probably give all their vacation days a year, instead of giving up her cup of coffee.
The Americans are ready to go green. 3-4 would not consider drinking bottled water (74%) or to use their cars for trips of less than 1 mile from home (70%)

2 in 3 (66%) of Americans said they did not quite understand what fair trade, and 1 to 3 (30%) admitted they had no idea. Furthermore, whilst the options, less than half (43%) could identify the definition of fair trade.
But now, after reading an explanation of the importance of fair trade, nearly 4 out of 5 respondents were likely to Fair Trade Certified products in the future.
