About this product

An introduction to the amazing Orang Utan Coffee Project: The advancing destruction of tropical rainforests is threatening the existence of both orangutans and farmers alike in Sumatra. The Orang Utan Coffee Project helps farmers operate ecologically friendly coffee plantations without clearing rainforests. Due to intensive agricultural development and rapid deforestation, orangutans lose their natural habitat. The greatest threat is the rapid expansion of the palm oil plantation industry at the expense of rainforests.
Profits from the sale of Orang Utan Coffee are invested in organic certification, training such as organic farming methods, coffee production and processing, marketing, infrastructure and facilities such as processing, storage, and transport. The goal is to sell enough Orang Utan Coffee to provide effective and long-lasting support for the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Program (SOCP) as well as small holder coffee farmers. The Orang Utan coffee growers receive a bonus of at least 0.50 EUR/kg of green bean for their commitment to protect the tropical rainforest and cultivate the coffee according to the strict Orang Utan guidelines.
Coffee farmers are the most important partners in this project, guidance and motivation is given to help them manage their land sustainably, knowledge is shared to promote respectful interaction between the farmers and the wildlife, as well as conservation of the rainforest. Farmers are also supported to convert to organic farming and strengthen their traditional knowledge about the balance between farming and the natural rainforest land.
