Bird-friendly coffee (and me) on NPR

by JulieCraves on November 10, 2010

I was on a segment of Public Radio International‘s show “The World” talking about sustainable coffee certifications. The emphasis of the show was on standards that preserve bird habitat. It aired today, but you can hear the audio at The World’s web site here. The piece runs about 5 minutes and, saving the best for last, I’m at the end.

Hi Julie,

Congratulations! Great article. I posted about this segment on our blog, “Shade grown coffee, birds and conservation” at and included a link to your website. I love your website, I had no idea coffee was an indirect threat to birds and land conservation. Thank you. Best regards, Kirt

Thanks so much, Kirt. You mentioned organic certification in your post…you can read about the specific standards of each of the most common coffee certifications here (same as the certifications tab at the top of the page). By the way, Karen McD. is a friend of mine…I think she still works for Carl, too.
