Access to the coffee market

The coffees are rated as one of the finest in the world. However, the producers Oromia coffee farmers, do not have the opportunity to access coffee market. Ethical trading is for fair pay is required for producers to work their way out of poverty. One of the alternatives and a possible poverty defeating mechanism is the farmers to get direct world coffee market access for their product for them to earn the right price. This can only be achieved when the link to the UK and world coffee market is accessible to the producers.
