Café Le Nichoir is the result of collaboration between Le Nichoir Wild Bird Conservation Centre and Totem Roasters. We launched Café Le Nichoir to encourage people to drink 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.
Each participating non-profit organization believes that the coffee you choose can change the world. By putting their logo on Bird Friendly® certified coffee they are helping to get the word out to more people.
In addition, for each bag sold with their logo the organization receives a portion of the selling price to support their own community or conservation programs.
Three-quarters of the world’s coffee farms destroy forest habitat to grow coffee in the sun and often use harmful pesticides and fertilizers that poison the environment. When forests disappear, migratory songbirds disappear, too. In order to combat population and habitat loss, scientists at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center created the Bird Friendly certification.
We believe in adventure, good friends and a great cup of coffee. We’re Carl and Nancy and together we’re Totem Roasters, based in Vaudreuil-Dorion against the beautiful backdrop of the Lake of Two Mountains. We both love the great outdoors as much as we love coffee and have found a way to combine the two to benefit the environment. We believe each bean has a life of its own, and our goal is to highlight its distinctive flavours so our clients can savour a better cup at home.
We’re committed to sourcing and roasting excellent coffee and sourcing coffees that not only have unique flavour characteristics but also benefit our planet and its living things.
