Kaya believes in doing as little harm as possible. So we are dedicated to serving fairly traded coffee and tea as often as possible, using beans from Equal Exchange in all our espresso drinks. Fairly traded means we may pay a little more for our coffee and tea to help insure that the farmers growing it will be paid fairly. Our loose leaf teas all come from Arbor Teas, a Michigan-based tea company also focusing on organic, fair trade tea. Our food is purchased from local vendors whenever possible, or made right here at Kaya.
