|We want to make sure that people who enjoy coffee and care about conservation can get great coffee that they know is good for bird conservation, family farmers and the environment.|
|Birds & Beans® only sells coffee meeting the demanding, independent certification of The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. SMBC’s Bird Friendly seal is by far the most rigorous bird conservation inspection. Bird Friendly coffee from Birds & Beans comes from the best managed family farms in Latin America. Farms where passion for great coffee and respect for environment are ways of life. Strong scientific evidence proves that farms with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center’s certification make a major difference for birds by preserving tropical habitat at a time when so many forests are under attack and industrial, mono-culture sun coffee farming is expanding. We want to make sure that people who care can get great coffee that is good for bird conservation, family farmers and the environment. Birds & Beans is “Triple Certified” - birds, people, planet.|
There are over twelve years of research and field inspections by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center are behind the SMBC certification and this means “Bird Friendly”® is the gold standard. SMBC certified farms support great biodiversity, they are organic and cultivated in large part by families and Coops. Coffees sold with SMBC certification must use only 100 percent certified beans, (other shade grown coffee may have little as 30 percent shade grown beans).
SMBC farms must meet stringent criteria for rich and structurally complex habitat. Other shade grown coffee may be from plantations with a single species of shade tree, heavily pruned and not supporting much more biodiversity than sun grown plantations. The science is very strong on this point; SMBC certification is the best for birds. So coffee drinkers and bird lovers who want to make the biggest difference buy SMBC coffee. ”Be Certain. Buy Certified.”®
Birds in our area like Baltimore Orioles, Red Throated Hummingbird, and Indigo Buntings migrate to Latin American countries that grow coffee. By purchasing SMBC certified coffees we can help ensure our birds have a healthy habitat to mirgrate to.
