About Ooo La Lattes
Opened in June of 2010, Ooo La Lattes has been giving the Lubbock community the best products and customer service around. We at Ooo La Lattes are all about the customer. Satisfaction is our main goal, from the time we greet you until your coffee or smoothie reaches your hand. Every latte is made with 100% certified fair-trade, organic coffee beans freshly ground for each order, as well as properly steamed milk. Each smoothie uses 100% real fruit to satisfy your taste buds, as well as help boost you through the day. Every coffee and smoothie prepared is sure to please. We strive to not only use the highest quality ingredients available, but also to give you an experience you won’t soon forget.
About our Products
Fair Trade: Our signature coffee is certified Fair Trade, which guarantees that farmers and workers received a fair price for their products. Fair Trade certified growers are farmer-owned cooperatives and small family farms, not corporate agribusinesses. Traditional artisanal methods result in a high-quality product that is worth the slight extra cost. Please visit www.transfairusa.org to learn more about Fair Trade certification.
USDA Organic: Our signature coffee is cultivated, harvested and processed without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Instead, farmers rely on safe techniques like composting, crop rotation, terracing and biological pest control. Our roaster is certified by Natural Food Certifiers. http://nfccertification.com/ Please visit the National Organic Program for details on organic farming. http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/nop
