Please Drink Bird Friendly Coffee

     Different Certifications:

•  Bird Friendly – this is the only true shade grown certification
•  Organic – no prohibited substances even if grown in another country
•  Rainforest Alliance – sustainable agriculture
•  Fair Trade – really about poverty


According to Bird Watching Daily

1. Consider country of origin – Costa Rica, Brazil and Columbia more sun grown coffees

2. Smaller companies better than multinationals

3. Price – cheap is not sustainable for the farmer and the environment
