Welcome to the Community Fair Trade Buying Club webpage for the Cincinnati Presbytery.  Our goal is to support fair trade / equal exchange efforts with purchases of coffee, tea, cocoa and chocolates. Current member churches of this effort include Union Presbyterian, Ft. Thomas Presbyterian, Mt. Washington Presbyterian and Community of Faith Presbyterian.

  • This Club is nonprofit.
  • There is no membership fee or registration.
  • The 2015 monthly order  “deadlines” are HERE with delivery usually 1-2 weeks later
  • We buy directly from Equal Exchange in West Bridgewater, MA, mostly at wholesale by the case. Items are sold at our wholesale cost except for bags of coffee, which are marked up slightly to help cover the extra retail cost of partial cases. Order 4 bags of one coffee item and save $1.00 (savings not shown in the Order Form).

HERE is a brochure with some details of the products and HERE are additional details on any product(s) you are thinking of purchasing
