A big thank you to Ray Hennessy

Cerulean Warbler

That old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” is still very true today. Wildlife photographer Ray Hennessy has allowed us to use many of his pictures to help us tell our coffee story.

Thanks to Ray’s generosity, his fabulous images feature on the coffee bags for several of our partners.  You’ll also see his images of birds that frequent coffee farms on the thank you note we send along with your order. 

The images depict so called ‘coffee farm birds’ looking their absolute best and are a great reminder as to the benefits of choosing to drink certified Bird Friendly coffee – coffee that protects their winter habitat.

Take a few minutes  (or a few hours) to visit his website.   It is a treasure trove of beautiful wildlife images along with lots of discussion and videos about different aspects of his photography. 

We can’t thank Ray enough for helping us show you the importance of certified Bird Friendly coffee.

New Packaging

New look, better packaging

It only makes sense that we would be concerned about how we package our coffee. In 2018 we launched an omnidegradable coffee bag from the Canadian company TekPak Solutions. Up until now though the labels on the bags were not biodegradable. All that changes today as we introduce our new labeling.
