A Fair Trade

I'm so thirsty! I've been here for so long it's been months since I had a coffee. If you find some coffee beans on a forest planet and make me some coffee in the coffee machine over there, I'll give you a tech drive and tell other people how helpful you are!

Thanks for the coffee but I'm not drinking it straight out of your matter manipulator! You'll need to do better than that for a tech drive. Talk to me again when you're not busy.

Prerequisites Follow Ups

A Fair Trade was a quest given at the outpost, available after completing the quest Bug Hunt.

It required the player craft coffee, which could be done by gathering Coffee Beans from a Coffee Plant which are found on the surface of Forest biome planets. After gathering Coffee Beans, they were crafted into Coffee using a Coffee Machine found inside the outpost.

It was removed in update Pleased Giraffe and replaced with Rent Well Spent.


The quest name is a reference to fair trade coffee, which is a label given to a group of coffee that adheres to certain labor and sustainable farming standards.
