Fair-trade coffee beans are intended to give coffee farmers, including many who live in developing countries, reasonable prices for their crops. Marlene Brown, owner of Coffee On the Go… use fair-trade coffees in all of the drinks that fill their shop with happy chatter.

Cloaked in curtains of steam, baristas warm milk for cappuccinos with railroad-themed names and craft hot cocoa. Smoothies brim with the flavors of additive-free fruit pulp, and a drive-up coffee kiosk ensures that on-the-go customers need only open their car window or wooden horse’s trap door to collect a drink.
