Planet Bean is a Worker Cooperative in Guelph;
They sell 100% Organic and 100% Fairtrade coffee beans and have a deep almost relentless commitment to producer rights.
The coolest thing about Planet Bean is their deep relationship with their producer cooperative partners. Our organization has attended several presentations by worker-owner Bill Barrett in which he tells magnificent stories of triumphant cooperative networks. These admirable David and Goliath-likes tales make the hair stand up on the back of your neck and make you truly believe that there is hope in the world after all.
