Looking for fair trade, certified organic coffee in Atlanta? Turn to Cafe Campesino in the Sweet Auburn Market!

Cafe Campesino and Maria in the Sweet Auburn Market

Maria serves up cups (and whole beans by the pound) of certified organic, fair trade coffee at the Sweet Auburn Market!

Yesterday, I stopped by the Sweet Auburn Curb Market to check out Cafe Campesino, a relatively new addition to the farmers’ market. I heard about them on Friday at Southface’s Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable where they’ve been providing attendees with their fair trade and certified organic coffee for years. Based out of Americus, Georgia, Cafe Campesino offers Atlantans a line of single origin coffees, blended coffees, espressos, teas, green bean coffees, and more.

When I stopped by, Maria (pictured to the right) was putting finishing touches on the Cafe Campesino mural on the wall and stopped to talk to me about their various coffees. I was leaning towards getting a dark roast when I tried a sample of their medium-bodied coffee named Sweet Auburn after their home in the market (it’s also the most popular selection). I ended up going with the Sweet Auburn with the intention of trying the dark roast next time (they have sample cups where you can taste before you buy).

Cafe Campesino also has free WiFi and an outdoor patio area at the entrance to the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. For a snack, they also have baked goods.

If you’re looking to purchase coffee by the pound bag, you can order from their wide selection online at www.CafeCampesino.com by Thursday and pick up at the store on Saturday (the store will absorb the shipping cost of $4.95). Or just walk in and buy your bag of whole coffee beans! If you’re like me and don’t have a coffee grinder at home, Maria can help you out with her commercial machine. And for every bag of fair trade coffee you purchase – whether online or in the store – you get a free cup of coffee!

Sweet Auburn Curb Market is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.!
