Traffic: Aldea Global

Traffic is one of Atlanta’s most dependable experiences. In a city that’s always changing, with weather that’s never predictable, traffic is the constant. Traffic is East Pole’s constant coffee. Though it comes from different coffee producers and origins, depending on what’s in season, you can count on Traffic to always be approachable, easy to drink, full-bodied, and sweet.

Our current Traffic selection is a microlot by Aldea Global, in partnership with Rainforest Alliance and Fair Trade, and imported by Balzac Bros. Here’s more info from Balzac:

Founded in 1992, Aldea Global began with just 22 small producers. Since then, they’ve integrated their business model with the surrounding municipalities, creating a financially and environmentally sustainable agricultural practice that benefits all parties involved. Aldea focuses on the development of direct relationships in order to maintain traceability and quality. We are proud to work with them year after year.
