Win Puro Fairtrade coffee gift pack

Puro Fairtrade Coffee gift pack
It’s with great pleasure that I offer up this amazing coffee hamper to you as a competition prize courtesy of Puro Fairtrade Coffee.

Puro was created in 2005 and since its conception, has always sourced Fairtrade, organic and shade grown coffee.

What’s the coffee like? It’s absolutely delicious – really rich and robust with a chocolatey edge to it – perfect for getting you started for another full-on day!

You may well have already come across this ethical brand, who supplies places like the National Trust cafes, Le Pain Quotidien, Leon, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Wyevales Garden Centre.

Puro are at the forefront of buying and protecting rainforests and are actively working alongside the World Land Trust, whose patron is Sir David Attenborough. For every cup of coffee sold, money is given to buy and protect areas of rainforest in South America. Puro have so far saved over 5,600 acres (approx 6,000 football fields) of rainforest across 3 Puro reserves in Ecuador, Brazil and Colombia – that’s pretty impressive!

So if you want to win the hamper read on, and if you want to find out more about Puro I’ve included a cool film they made at the bottom of this page.
