Bird Friendly Coffee

Looks like Wild Bird Unlimited has some bird friendly coffee for sale.  Who knew?
Birds & Beans the good coffee™ is the best choice for Birds.  Our Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center (SMBC) “Bird Friendly”® coffee is not just any shade-grown coffee. Over twelve years of research and field inspections by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center are behind the SMBC certification and this means “Bird Friendly”® is the gold standard. SMBC certified farms support great biodiversity, they are organic and cultivated in large part by families and Coops. Coffees sold with SMBC certification must use only 100 percent certified beans, (other shade grown coffee may have little as 30 percent shade grown beans).

Bird Friendly
SMBC farms must meet stringent criteria for rich and structurally complex habitat. Other shade grown coffee may be from plantations with a single species of shade tree, heavily pruned and not supporting much more biodiversity than sun grown plantations. The science is very strong on this point; SMBC certification is the best for birds. So coffee drinkers and bird lovers who want to make the biggest difference buy SMBC coffee. ”Be Certain. Buy Certified.”®

 Their bird friendly coffee comes in a variety of blends:
  • Chestnut-sided Warbler - Medium Roast (Rich and Clean)
  • Scarlet Tanager - Dark Roast (Bold, Intense, and Smooth)
  • Wood Thrush - Light Roast (Delicate yet Full Flavored)
  • Baltimore Oriole - French Road Decaf
