In 2017 we decided to take our mission of environmental stewardship one step further and became Bird Friendly Certified. Instead of clearing rainforests to grow coffee in the sun, Bird Friendly farms grow coffee underneath the shade trees that provide habitat for birds, including migratory species, whose impressive journeys can take them from the backyards of the U.S. and Canada all the way to coffee farms in Latin America. As part of our certification, we pay additional fees, “premiums”, for these coffees. The premiums are paid to producer groups and help to strengthen the financial security of coffee workers and farms. They also help with farm sustainability projects & community development.
