Certified Bird Friendly® Coffee

Bird Friendly® Guatemala

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.

giving back is the difference.

Bird Friendly® certification was developed by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and is the only 100% organic & shade-grown coffee certification available. Their seal ensures that tropical agroforests are being preserved and migratory birds have a healthy environment when they travel from our backyards to far away coffee farms.  CBRC pays a premium for this coffee in support of Bird Friendly® growing practices and habitat preservation.
