Anyone else think this is just Starbucks just trying to spruce up their image after More 4 programme on 'Black Gold' which funnily enough was shown last night? For those of you who didn't, Starbucks were slated for essentially causing a famine in Ethiopia cause they paid the farmers hardly anything for their coffee. I know this is for Fairtrade coffee but Starbucks should be avoided full stop.

Welcome to HUKD JimmyOr

Like my ID says, I try to find things as amusing as possible, but this move by starbucks realllly amuses me!

Fairtrade being the type of labour whereby the farmers are paid good money for their product....so one would think the one type of product that would never be offered for free would be the fairtrade one. I realise of course that starbucks probably paid good money for the product, but it still amuses me.

ie it would have been better if they had offered their normal product for free, rather than the fairtrade one as it makes one think that they are not being as fair as they might think...:-D

Very amusing...but a good post nonetheless, rep added for the value of the irony

Of course they aren't being as fair as we might think, but it may mean that more people buy fairtrade in the future. Obviously not wanting to look to bad after last night, so it's a good way to get some decent marketing in for both sides...but mainly starbucks :roll:

actually, that wasn't the implication of Black Gold at all... If you've done any reading on the commodities markets, and understand the effects of first-world agricultural subsidies, you'll know that boycotting one of the largest buyers of coffee in the world would do nothing to help the coffee growers... I'm all for corporate and consumer responsibility, but action is better when well-directed so that it doesn't involve making a monkey of oneself...

Got my free cup and a free sachet of freshly ground too! Only the one near the Crucible in Sheff were giving out free cups, the one on Devonshire street only the coffee samples. Was really nice but I won't be setting foot in there until they do this again, can't afford it!

I forgot about this , but can get free coffee at IKEA , HSBC and Toolstation every day ;-)
