Coffee that does not harm the environment

A large number of people love coffee. But would they pay a higher price for coffee that is produced in a way that does not harm the environment?

Producers of coffee in Costa Rica were the first in the world in the course of production were able to keep carbon emissions to zero. It is a discovery that they want to share with the rest of the world.

Every hour in the world are drunk almost a hundred million cups of coffee and production of each of them resulting in the discharge of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In addition to coffee produced one cooperative in the region Dota, in the mountains of Costa Rica. It is the only certified coffee in the world whose production does not harm the environment.

Manufacturers such as Victor Romero use a minimum of chemical fertilizers. Coffee beans are then washed in the recycled water, and then fried in furnaces which use as fuel coffee flakes, and not wood. All of this helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

“We get products from the mother earth and we know that in this way we have something to leave to their children. This give them an example of how a country keeps,” says Romero.

Buying carbon credits

However, it is impossible to achieve that carbon dioxide emissions completely avoided, but people buy carbon credits that allow them to carbon dioxide emissions remain within the limits permitted.

Environmentally conscious production is a lucrative business. Their coffee in the UK and Germany is sold at the highest prices.

“The global coffee market is great competition, but we are the only company that is certified for the production of carbon-neutral coffee. It is to our advantage, because some buyers care about ecology,” says Roberto Mata, managing director of the cooperative Coopedota.

The government is now trying to apply this recipe and in other parts of the country.
