GOOD COFFEE = BETTER WORLD

Our Partners

THE CORNELL LAB OF ORNITHOLOGY AND OUR LOCAL CONSERVATION PARTNERS RECOMMEND BIRDS & BEANS

Some of our most beloved Neotropical migrant songbirds – especially our thrushes, orioles, tanagers, and warblers -- are suffering from loss of habitat when they fly south for the winter. One of the easiest things we can all do to support our migratory songbirds is to make sure that the coffee we buy comes from coffee farms that preserve bird habitat. Birds & Beans is certified by the best in the business, and makes it easy to be confident that the coffee we drink is also providing habitat for birds. -- John W. Fitzpatrick, Director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Birds & Beans donates over 10% of our gross profits to our partners to help their important work.
