These beans are for the birds!
Sanctuary Coffees are harvested from carefully selected farms still growing coffee under a canopy of shade trees. Coffee grows more slowly in the shade, and like fine wines, the slower growth creates beans with a sweeter, more complex flavor. Shade coffee farms also protect the rapidly disappearing winter habitat for many of the species of migratory songbirds that brighten our summer days. Truly, Sanctuary Coffees are for the birds and coffee lovers who prefer a better, more flavorful cup!
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Sanctuary Coffees supports the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. These donations help to educate both consumers and producers about important issues, while funding research efforts of scientists working in Latin America.
