A 101Vision about Climate Change Coffee. Cristina Talens has now launched Climate Change Coffee, at the fine food show in Olympia, London. CLevel has supported this with this film. This is a pioneering example of what is being called carbon insetting. We can now buy really fine single estate ground coffee - where the carbon footprint of the coffee has been calculated and offset by reforestation done by the coffee growing communities themselves. The first Source Coffee, La Sierra Cloud Forest is carbon balanced and includes a payment to the smallholder coffee farmers of La Sierra, Mexico, for their environmental stewardship. It includes beans from coffee farms operating within the Plan Vivo Standard. http://sourcesustainable.co.uk
