You Can Make a Real Difference with Each Cup of Audubon Premium Shade Grown Coffee.
- Certified 100% Sustainable by the Rainforest Alliance. The Rainforest Alliance's 3rd party certification ensures farmers have brought their operations up to Rainforest Alliance's standards for protecting wildlife, wild lands, workers’ rights and local communities. A very important aspect of the coffee agricultural certification is that it's grown under a natural, tropical forest canopy. This protects neotropical migratory bird habitats. It also happens to make an outstanding, flavorful cup of coffee.
Your purchase of sustainable, shade grown coffee helps protect the habitat of thousands of tropical migratory birds who migrate to coffee farming lands in the winter. Learn more about how shade-grown coffee helps birds and wildlife at the Audubon At Home Shade-Grown Coffee page.
- Certified 100% Organic by OCIA. Coffee grown without harmful chemical fertilizers or pesticides protects the environment and water supply for people who grow and harvest the coffee and for the wildlife that makes its home in the tropical forests.
- Grown on Socially Responsible Coffee Farms. The importers and roasters of Audubon Premium Shade Grown Coffee, the Rogers Family Company, runs its unique Community Aid program on the farms that supply Audubon Coffee. The company spends over $800,000 per year on farms in Mexico and Central America building schools, health clinics, child nutrition programs, and stay-in-school programs. The National Audubon Society is proud to partner with the Rogers Family Company on Audubon Premium Shade Grown Coffee.
All of our beans are hand picked from the most select growing areas around the world to ensure the highest quality and most sustainable cup of coffee. Each farm is under long term contract with us. The contract guarantees the highest quality coffee beans, grown under strict environmental conditions (per above) with socially responsible treatment of the farm workers.
Our coffees are roasted to their fullest flavor point - a little darker than most coffees. It takes longer, and costs more, but is worth it in your cup! We use a batch roasting system that combines old-world craftsmanship with computer technology to assure consistency.
Audubon's just-roasted coffee is packed, still warm from the roaster, in our special multi layer vacuum bag. This ensures absolute freshness right to your cup.
Your satisfaction with these special coffees is 100% guaranteed. Please call the Rogers Family Company customer service group at 1-800-829-1300 for questions or comments.
