- Walk in to your local Starbucks
- Ask if you can get a cup of FAIR TRADE coffee
- Enjoy your coffee! (If you can get it)
- Come back online and report the result you got to these guys.
Nonetheless, the company made a public promise and they've been caught out once for not keeping their word and claim to have resolved it. Apparently not so well. As a consumer, I like to know which stores are untrustworthy, regardless whether thats because of incompetence or plain lies.

P.S. If you manage to play along before Nov 30th then theres a little prize for one or two lucky participants as a thank you. If, however, this whole 'say one thing, do another' issue gets your blood boiling (please notice how I tactfully avoided accusing a large, wealthy retail chain of out and out BS-ing the public), then I don't suppose it matters one jot if you think to test the local shop in the first weeks of December, I'm sure Siel and City Hippy would still want to know.
Pass the word!
