Something new is brewing at the zoo! 

In collaboration with Calm Waters Coffee Roasters based in Bristol, Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley Zoo is now offering Bird Friendly coffee for purchase.


So, what exactly is Bird Friendly coffee? 

Bird Friendly coffee comes from farms which aim to protect forest biodiversity from the threat of deforestation by planting shade-grown coffee beans. This means that the coffee beans are grown under the shade of the rainforest canopy, as opposed to being grown under direct sunlight on a plantation. Shade-grown coffee beans grow much slower, resulting in high quality coffee with richer, more complex flavors than sun-grown coffee. All Bird Friendly coffee is 100% shade-grown, 100% organic, and is labeled with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center seal: the gold-standard in eco-friendly and organic farming.
