Bird Friendly

Bird Friendly coffee is certified organic and produced on farms with a shade cover that provides important habitat for migratory and resident birds in tropical landscapes. These landscapes are increasingly threatened by deforestation globally at an alarming rate. Bird Friendly certification is the world’s most stringent standard for shade-grown coffee production.

Some important standards are:

  • The coffee farm must have organic certification that strictly prohibits the use of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
  • Coffee must be shade-grown in a forest with at least 40% canopy foliage cover.
  • Agroforestry practices must be followed to provide a safe habitat for a diversity of bird species.
