 All this coffee comes with a pretty hefty carbon footprint. In Costa Rica, coffee production is responsible for nearly 10 percent of the country’s carbon dioxide emissions. One cooperative south of the capital city of San José is working to make coffee more climate-friendly.  The Coffee Cooperative of Dota (Coopedota), an association of 800 coffee farmers, is the world’s first certified carbon-neutral coffee producer.  The video above explores how Coopedota achieved this certification by changing the way coffee is grown and processed. With resulting energy and water savings, the cost of running the main production facility dropped by nearly half.

The Costa Rican government hopes the country’s 6,000-plus coffee producers will follow the cooperative’s lead and reduce emissions from one of the world’s most beloved beverages.         Video at:     https://vimeo.com/210841640                                   Ask nirab about the red bag of Dota Tarrazu strictly hard beans he received.
