Includes: one (1) bag / twelve (12) ounces of SongBird Coffee Guatemalan Light Roast Whole Bean Coffee, USDA Organic Shade Grown Bird Friendly Coffee Beans. Flavor: Vibrant, Cherries, Molasses. Roasted by Thanksgiving Coffee of Fort Bragg, California. Lightly roasted to express the unique characteristics of this exceptional coffee: juicy ripe cherry sweetness, cacao nibs, and sugary molasses. The coffee is shade-grown on steep volcanic slopes of the Northwestern Highlands of Guatemala by Maya Quiche coffee farmers. It is a gift from craft-inspired farmers whose ancestors have lived in these lush mountain forests for millennia. The GUAYA’B Association is a cooperative of 292 small coffee farmers in the mountainous Guatemalan state of Huehuetenango. In the 1980’s, this indigenous Mayan community was ravaged by the Guatemalan civil war, and the area’s economy was destroyed. Many inhabitants lost their farms and migrated to the Guatemalan coast to search for work. In 1992, a number of small-scale family farmers of the Maya-Popti indigenous group united to take control of the production and export of the coffee crops. By forming a cooperative, the “Asociacion GUAYA’B”, the farmers hoped to make coffee farming sustainable and profitable for the community. Certified “Bird-Friendly” by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center (SMBC). This new certification is an important one, that protects and raises awareness for our Neotropical migratory birds, that rely on shade-grown coffee farms for their winter migration. Migrating songbirds need a place to rest on their long journeys and shade-grown coffee is one way to ensure that their precious habitats are being preserved. Each package sold benefits the American Birding Association’s (ABA) programs in Central America and helps support the outreach of BirdNote. By drinking shade-grown and bird-friendly certified coffee every morning, you are supporting the efforts of the ABA and BirdNote, and the countless birds they are protecting.

Rich aroma complicated by smoky semi-sweet chocolate and caramel – we love this coffee with breakfast or for a post-lunch coffee break
