Bird Friendly Coffee

Proudly serving biodiversity

When you drink Bird Friendly® certified coffee, you brew a more biodiverse, sustainable world. Using Smithsonian conservation science, the Bird Friendly gold standard does more than other eco-friendly seals to protect habitat, which is often destroyed to make way for coffee growing. Bird Friendly coffees come from farms using a combination of foliage cover, tree height and biodiversity to provide quality habitat for birds and other wildlife. 

The Bird Friendly® program aims to protect the most quality habitat from the threat of deforestation under the Bird Friendly seal. Look for the Bird Friendly seal — the gold standard in eco-friendly, organic farming — from certified Bird Friendly roasters.
