It’s important to note… some of these articles were written several years ago, but they are here because we want you to see that they document our company history and especially our involvement with Rainforest Alliance, Fair Trade and Organic coffees for many years.  Alakef’s commitment to the support of Organic coffees is not new…it began over 20 years ago when we began selling the coffee and were approved to sell Organic and Fair Trade coffee.
