On this episode I speak to David from Birds and Beans coffee about the importance of buying shade grown, organic and bird-friendly certified coffee. Bird friendly certified coffees come from farms that provide good, forest-like habitat for birds. Unlike many coffee farms, which clear forest to grow in the full sun, bird friendly coffee grows under a canopy of trees. These trees provide the shelter, food and homes migratory birds and other wildlife need to survive. Plus, all bird friendly coffees are certified organic, so they are grown without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Bird friendly is consider the environmental gold standard coffee certification – no other certifications comes close to protecting habitat at this level.
