Fair Trade coffee, cacao, chocolate and tee

CO2-neutral "sailed coffee" in Regensburg and in Passau

Starting with a fair wage for the coffee farmers and the organic cultivation of the coffee up to its transport: the "Slokoffie" produces 90% less CO²-emissions than a conventional transport of coffee. Enjoy your coffee with a clear conscience!
