OK Coffee Aficionados, answer me this: FAIR TRADE COFFEE or ORGANIC COFFEE?

I've been buying this "fair trade coffee" for over a year now --- I like the equity of returning a fair portion of the profit to those who sweated in the fields under hot skies---much coffee is, after all, grown in economically depressed regions.

BUT the regulation of chemicals used in poorer nations is, most often, all but non-existent and I'd like to fill my body with as few chemicals as possible. Which leads me to wonder if its possible to purchase organic coffee OR do I have to buy organic coffee beans from wealthier nations that have stringent laws to ensure the complete integrity of organic coffee products?

I guess "free trade organic coffee" would be the answer, but I haven't found it yet. Any thoughts? Ideas?

We get decently priced organic beans at Costco or something decent. I will not consume chemicals.
