I mentioned a while back about Oxfam's campaign to help Ethiopian coffee farmers get a decent price for their produce, well it seems (after 70,000 faxes were sent to Starbucks' CEO) they may be having some success. The Times reported yesterday that the CEO of Starbucks, Jim MacDonald, is going to meet with the Ethiopian Prime-Minister later today to negotiate a better deal... well done Oxfam!
