Winner of a Great Taste Award in 2013 and 2018, this smooth medium-dark roast coffee from Mexico has a delicious praline nuttiness and is perfect for drinking at any time of day. For every bag of coffee sold, local farmers plant trees to support the forest and their families.
All Source Climate Change coffees are offset using reforestation carbon credits and are 100% traceable to the forest community conservation project.
About The Coffee:
La Sierra Cloud Forest coffee is grown by 30 indigenous Mayan and Mestizo communities high in the mountains around the Ocote Biosphere Reserve in Mexico; a biodiversity hotspot that is home to over 2,000 plant and 5,500 animal species.
Cristina Talens is the Founder, Owner and Manufacturer of the coffee brand Source Climate Change and has over 15 years experience in ethical trading, sustainability and rainforest protection, having worked as Ethical Trading Manager for a leading Roast & Ground coffee company and alongside a network of conservation organisations developing the United Bank of Carbon. She started her working life as a human rights campaigner at Antislavery International.
She hit upon the idea of creating a gourmet coffee that would incentivise small farmers to protect primary forests. Source is today the only conservation-led coffee company which is founded to protect the world’s forests, helping customers to make direct payments for ecosystem services for every bag or tin that is sold through reforestation carbon credits.Her products are supported by the Plan Vivo Foundation, an independent standard, specifically designed to incentivise smallholders and forest-user groups to provide ecosystem services.
