It's right for the Forest
the forest, a place of profound natural beauty which helps us recharge and reconnect with the world. Nicaragua's rain forest and its wildlife, the bellbirds, howler monkeys and orchids, are a shared global heritage, an
irreplaceable resource with intrinsic value that deserves protection.
It's right for the Community
Coffee fincas are basically self-contained communities (people+place), and these communities are what protects the forests. These farms are unique places where people and nature must co-exist to benefit both. Without the farms' limiting human access to the forests, and without the understanding and cooperation of the people living there, the
forests would be quickly lost to wood-cutting, grazing and settlement.
It's right for the Consumer
Thousands of miles away, the simple act of choosing to buy a particular coffee can have a profound effect on this system. These communities depend on a market for their coffee in order to stay afloat. Our shared challenge is to draw the connection between the activities of the farms themselves - the choice to maintain the forest, to not hunt animals, to plant shade trees, to allow habitat corridors along streams - and the consumer who chooses to support the values evinced by these farms.
