Sustainable coffee is coffee grown in a manner that is kind to the environment and its people.

In growing activities, the members in the Group will apply modern methods in growing coffee and comply with 4C Code of Conduct. The Group replaces the natural nutrients of the land by spreading fertilizers and organic matter (composted coffee pulp) under the coffee trees and between the coffee trees.  This type of fertilization has been found to increase yields over time and to produce a more uniform and natural mineral content in the ground. The Group also engages in practices such as shade growing, bio-diversification, organic farming, and sustainable agriculture.
