The coffee you choose can change the world
Drink Bird Friendly

No other eco-friendly coffee seal comes close to the Bird Friendly® gold standard when it comes to protecting biodiversity on coffee farms.

Café Le Nichoir and Café Avia are the result of collaboration between Le Nichoir Wild Bird Conservation Centre and Totem Roasters. We launched the initiative in 2019 to encourage people to drink, Fair Trade, organic, Bird Friendly® certified coffee.

It’s a simple gesture all coffee drinkers can make to protect the winter habitat of birds that travel from our backyards each winter to the faraway farms that produce our coffee. 

To help get the word out we have partnered with other organizations. It’s simple: Many voices are stronger than one.
