Vermont-based Green Mountain Coffee Roasters offers Fair Trade versions of its popular roasts in bags for at-home brewing and in K-cups for those single-serve machines offices tend to choose, while the variety of flavors -- wild mountain blueberry, French roast, vanilla cream -- mean that you can choose an organic, Fair Trade option whether you like your coffee classic or contemporary.

The company also partners with farmers to make sure they're getting a fair wage and working in appropriate conditions, supports local economies in Vermont, and sticks to waste reduction and recycling plans at its headquarters, manufacturing plants, and retails stores. (Green Mountain Fair Trade Organic French Roast, $8.50)
