This paper examines the potential financial and social benefits that free trade would have on Nicaragua's coffee bean farmers. The paper shows that free trade coffee in Nicaragua is an important part of ensuring the livelihood of the Nicaraguan coffee grower and the continuation of the coffee industry. The paper provides a brief history of this coffee growing industry and economic statistics.
From the Paper:"On the average Saturday afternoon in Bellevue, WA, the door of the Starbucks at Lohemans Plaza is almost impossible to get through- not because there is a rush on frappiccinos or lattes, but because protesters are blocking the entrance (Ahlers 2002). This small yet dedicated group of protesters is disappointed in many aspects of Starbucks business practices, yet their major problem lies with the issue of fair trade. While this phenomenon is not a common occurrence throughout the country, awareness of fair trade practices, specifically in the coffee industry, has caught the attention of political activists of all ages."
