The organic ‘Kilimanjaro’ Cloud forest is a remarkable single origin using coffees from the Plan Vivo Project in the Karagwe region and the finest Arabica from the slopes of the Machare Kilimanjaro forest estate.
Sourced from coffee farmers on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, this single origin is located right below the Rainforest and helps protect a nature reserve. Somewhat similar to Kenyan coffee, this Tanzanian coffee exhibits a bright and vibrant, acidity, which is then rounded with the deep rich taste of Kaderes coffee from Karagwe.
It is here that Source Climate Change use coffee and carbon offsets from the Emiti Nibwo Bulora ‘Trees Sustain Life’ project run by VI-Agroforestry. This project helps small scale farmers engage in tree planting and develop agroforestry to diversify crops, fix nitrogen to the ground and ensure organic sustainable land management techniques.
All Source Climate Change coffees are offset using reforestation carbon credits and are 100% traceable to the forest community conservation project.
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.
