Fairtrade coffee that doesn't taste foul

SimplyfaircoffeeIt's a simple enough dilemma. You want decent coffee but you want whoever picked the beans in the first place to get a proper portion of your wedge. The problem is - and I whisper this for fear of being stuck down as some ethical Judas - most Fairtrade coffee actually tastes pretty horrible. Handily, there are exceptions, and Equal Exchange's organic and Fairtrade Colombian is the best I've tasted yet. In the UK, it can be hard to track down on the high street. You can, however, order it online for £3.50 from Simplyfair, an excellent emporium of exclusively Fairtrade coffee - let me know if you find any other beans on there that you rate.

I don't really have much coffee knowledge, especially about fair trade coffee, but why is it that it tastes bad most of the time?

It's a bit of a generalisation, but it's often too weak or just doesn't taste that good!
