About this Episode

Rob along with our special guest host from LocalFirst AZ Kendall Jones enjoy a cup of coffee with Stephanie Vasquez at her Fair Trade Coffee shop on Roosevelt Row in Phoenix Arizona. At Fair Trade ‘coffee with a conscience’ is not simply a phrase or a marketing piece rather its a way of life. Stephanie is a former education and after some travels she felt led to open a coffee shop. A shop that focuses on the fair trade of coffee beans, organic ingredients and quality above all else. The shop is located in the downtown Phoenix Roosevelt Arts District and upon entering the shop you’ll be greeted by the sweet aroma of organic coffee and your eyes will be graced with the wonderful works of local AZ artists. Fair Trade holds a rotating art gallery supporting local up and coming artists which are all a part of the shops desire to support and build the local community. Their conversation started on the patio among the backdrop of passing automobiles and light rail train cars. The summer heat then moved them inside where you’ll hear the workings of a bustling coffee shop. Enjoy this conversation with Stephanie and be sure to make the trip downtown for a cup of coffee and community.
