Bird-Friendly Coffee

The Burnetts were directed by a friend recently to Birds and Beans when our then bird-friendly organic coffee source went extinct. We have been delighted with their service and their coffee. At $23 for a really-2-pound bag, it is a reasonable price for 100% Arabica, gourmet coffee. And it is fresh! Birds & Beans roasts the coffee on-site, grinds it to order (or not) and ships it the next business day after roasting. All that and the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center certified bird habitat as well. Do visit their website at and order some coffee. If you are interested in forming a coffee club and ordering as a group, let any board member know.

The Cornell Lab Of Ornithology and our local conservation Partners Recommended Birds & Beans

Some of our most beloved Neotropical migrant songbirds – especially our thrushes, orioles, tanagers, and warblers — are suffering from loss of habitat when they fly south for the winter. One of the easiest things we can all do to support our migratory songbirds is to make sure that the coffee we buy comes from coffee farms that preserve bird habitat. Birds & Beans is certified by the best in the business, and makes it easy to be confident that the coffee we drink is also providing habitat for birds.”
