Green Communities is a social enterprise connecting volunteers from around the world to sustainably-minded farmers in the central region of Costa Rica known as Los Santos. These independent farmers, who have been producing conventional coffee for generations, are concerned about climate change. To combat it, and to preserve their land for future generations, they have banded together to convert their farms to organic. Due to the high amount of labor required to farm organically, international volunteers are the only way these farmers can take this risk. We use solar-powered shell stripping machines to minimize our use of water and electricity. We dry the beans in the sun to avoid burning wood. Every step is thought through with the Earth in mind. By purchasing this coffee, you are supporting the farmers, as well as our planet. Enjoy your delicious, organic coffee.
