What do you know about coffee?
Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world and a widely popular drink in the West. But while many of us drink it every day, we rarely consider how coffee is farmed and processed before it gets to us.
So you might be surprised to hear that the wet milling process, which is sometimes used to extract the coffee bean from its fruit, produces organic waste that can damage and pollute local water supplies. You might also be surprised to hear that some North American coffee companies are doing something about it.
The Water Wise Coffee™ project is helping coffee producers in Ethiopia tackle the waste generated by their wet mills and cleaning up the rivers that so many local people rely on.
We’re doing it in a sustainable, innovative way, using Vetiver grass and composting practices.
Let us show you how.
