Rainforest Foundation Blend

One dollar from the sale of each bag is donated to The Rainforest Foundation.

This blend created in tribute to our partnership with the Rainforest Foundation is a house favorite here at Irving Farm Coffee Roasters. We designed this USDA Organic certified blend around three very special coffees who have USDA certified organic status and sustainable and ethical practices we deeply admire from Honduras and Peru.

Honduras: The town of Capucas, Honduras, is home to just over 80 families who produce coffee. Many of the farmers also have small “micro-mills” to process their coffee and then sell through the coop. The farmers take great pride in their coffee plantations: they obsess over different pruning techniques, processing experiments and which varietals will produce the best coffees. The farmers we work with in Capucas have obtained Organic, Fair Trade and Rainforest certifications to reflect their commitment to their environment and fair social ethic.

Peru: Cooperative Agraria Cafetalera La Florida (CAC La Florida) in Peru was formed in 1966 to give the producers in this area a means to gain access to markets for their coffee. Over the years, their work has increased food sustainability in the region, encouraging farmers to raise livestock, bees and other food crops. Coffee, however, is their main crop, and this particular coffee is an excellent example of their capabilities. CAC La Florida also works with their producers to ensure they use the best agricultural practices: since 2006 they have increased their organic certified coffee production by 30%. The cooperative is also Fair Trade and Bird Friendly certified.


This coffee is certified USDA Organic. Its production did not involve the use of synthetic substances such as most pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. And the land on which it was produced meets the rigorous standards of the Sustainable Agriculture Network or the Forest Stewardship Council.1-rainforest-foundation-project.jpg

    Very good flavor - very mild - no bitterness - You can brew this coffee from "tea" strength to "espresso" - it's all good!



Micro-lots:

Available for limited times in small quantities, our carefully curated micro-lots are single origin coffees at their purest. Not only are the beans sourced from one farm, they're sourced from one micro-lot of land on that farm, ensuring a highly consistent flavor and experience. This is a wonderful way to sample the true, amazing potential of coffee. We've selected these lots despite their small quantity because we see something in them that's truly special--and we think you will, too.

Single Origins:

True to their name, single origin coffees consist of beans sourced from a farm or community in one, specific region. Seasonal selections from around the world, our line of single origin coffees focuses on the highest quality product from coffee producers who take their work as seriously as we do.

Blends:

Handcrafted from exceptional single origin coffees, our signature blends are carefully developed in our Hudson Valley roastery to please drinkers day after day, year round.

Decaf:

Offering exceptional flavor to coffee lovers who prefer to go without the caffeine, our Decaf selections stay true to taste with carefully blended, naturally water-processed decaffeinated coffees.
