In the last article, we've been discussing why it is not comprehensive nor appropriated to say drinking coffee is not eco-friendly just determent by the water consumption during the growing and processes for coffee beans without an in-depth understanding of the industry. Today, we are going to talk about why in reverse the coffee industry is indeed an environmental industry in the more developed origins. Despite the uncountable eco-certification the coffee producers and farmers got and introduced by the independent environmental associations, there are few more facts explaining why the coffee industry is sustainable. The environmental issue is a broad topic, we can talk about it from views like consumptions of resources, pollution, protection of the current environment and species, improvement of the environment, cultural protection, education and more. As we've talked about the consumption and pollution parts in the last article, we are not going to discuss that here.

The Coffee Industry Is A Great Contributor To The Biodiversity Preservation, Environmental Protection And Improvement Aspects.

Coffee is a natural product, any changes in the environment make a big impact in the coffee industry, that's why coffee farms with more resources are putting extra efforts in environmental protection, especially on the biodiversity in and around their farm. For example, the farm La Esperanza is located in Trujillo of Valle del Cauca in Colombia and the Yara in central Kenya own by Gatatha Farmers Co. Ltd and more, they are famous for their broad biodiversity in their farm with enormousness non-coffee trees plant varieties and wildlife animals. In fact, the higher the biodiversity the farm is, the more flavor their coffee bean usually delivered when compared. Finca La Llama in Bolivia owned by the Rodriguez family is working hard on renovating aged coffee-growing areas which believed had become infertile land, to help the land revival. Shakisso Farm owned by Haile Gebre in Ethiopia has its coffee trees planted on the destructed land damaged by mining which helps prevent land erosion in the area and recover of the forest.

Some Coffee Farms Provide Educational Tours For Publics

Some coffee farms run with resort villa and allow their guests visiting their coffee farms, like The Finca Los Castaños located in the Valle de Agaete in Spain. Some others like Elida Estate in Panama hold or allow tours to visite their farms, facilitating the promotion and protection of local tribs and lands. #Sustainability #EnvironmentalIssue #Coffee #CoffeeBean
