having worked in that hell hole

no, they don't. they don't really pay what most people would consider a "Fair Price" even for the fair trade coffees. it's pretty pathetic how much they waste, and how much money they still make.

Re: having worked in that hell hole

My concern over Starbucks getting into the whole "Equal Exchange" project is that it has the potential to centralize distribution and thereby squelch smaller businesses and to turn the growers cooperatives into commercial serfdom.

'Course, I get alarmist like that.
