Fair trade coffee

Mariela Zamora, an agronomist with Catholic Relief Services, examines the health of coffee trees with coffee farmer Rosa Amelia Centano in 2008 La Sirena, Nicaragua.

CRS says it sees the value in promoting fair-trade operations and is putting it on the agenda for Catholics by educating them about its purpose.
