What Makes Our Coffee Special.
Coffee That Preserves the Rain Forest
Arbor Day Specialty Coffee is made from certified shade grown coffee beans that thrive underneath the rain forest canopy. Unlike typical coffee shade grown beans grow in harmony with the rest of the rain forest, thus saving an entire eco-system including plant life, trees, birds, insects, and mammals.
Provides an above average wage
Arbor Day Specialty Coffee is Fair Trade® certified, which assures our coffee bean growers are paid above average wages and their children are kept out of the coffee fields. Because of this, many co-op farming communities are now providing scholarships for the brightest students, whereas before many of these children had to work on the coffee farms to simply ensure their family could make a decent living.
Healthy Water and Farmers
Arbor Day Coffee is grown without harmful pesticides and chemicals on the coffee beans. This process keeps local water supplies free of contamination and prevents potential harm to the farmers. By choosing Arbor Day Coffee you're providing social and environmental benefits to our world and its citizens.
The Value of the Rain Forest...
Scientists have identified 3,000 plants as having anti-cancer properties, and 70% of them are found only in the rain forest. Many rain forest plants provide today's medicines, and many more that are yet to be tested for their medical value.
Rain forests provide the most diverse natural habitat on the planet. They are home to over 200,000 species of plants, and a majority of the 9,672 species of birds on earth, including hummingbirds, parrots, toucans, cuckoos, tanagers, and finches.
Many of the songbirds, butterflies and moths we enjoy in our yards every summer spend their winters in the rain forests of Central and South America
