Responsible Coffee Sourcing

Since 2002, Cornell Dining has provided Fair Trade coffee in all of our dining roomscafes, food courts, and coffee houses.  Fair Trade guarantees a set price to coffee growers, enabling them to implement sustainable farming practices, become more self-sufficient and less vulnerable to market price fluctuations, and improve the quality of life in their communities.

To provide Fair Trade coffee, Cornell Dining partners with Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters, a local community business, and Starbucks.

Cornell Dining sells reusable stainless steel coffee mugs in our coffee houses and cafés for only $4.99. The initial purchase also includes the first beverage. Any subsequent refills of fresh-brewed drip coffee using the mug costs only $1.60.
