Coffee, People, and Life on Earth

Our Mission at Birds and Beans is to use coffee, in all its capacities, to improve life on earth in the small ways we can. We choose to invest ourselves into the quality of our coffee, and into supporting our heroic growers who are the defenders of forest habitat in Latin America.  We appreciate the simple pleasures of a delicious cup of Bird Friendly® coffee while discussing it's very contribution to the diversity of life on earth. In a world of cynicism and doubt, we do better.

A richer taste, a richer earth.®

Enjoy the simple pleasures of exceptional coffee

Grown in natural forest

Expertly roasted to reveal hidden flavours

Strength without bitterness, Mellow without weakness
