Darren Rowse ran a little experiment on his excellent site, ProBlogger, last weekend. He invited folks to promote their blogs in 140 characters or less. There were 1400 responses, and Darren picked 10 of his favorite pitches. First on his list was…
Are your beans for the birds? Learn about eco-friendly, sustainable coffee, and how your morning cup can change the world.
If you are reading this because you were also intrigued by my pitch, welcome! I know Coffee & Conservation can be a little daunting. How could there be so much material on sustainable coffee?! Where should you begin?
First, a brief bit about why I believe that making the choice to drink sustainable coffee can bring real change to the world. Then please visit the User Guide for a list of background posts that help you understand what defines sustainable coffee. They include What is shade coffee? and What is sun coffee and why is it a problem? You may also want to check out the post on the coffee crisis (why cheap coffee is being grown on sun plantations) and how this cheap coffee perpetuates poverty. If you only read one post here and put what you learn into action, make it The Top 5 Indicators of Sustainable Coffee.
I hope ProBlogger readers find this site useful — and I welcome feedback.
