Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM Coffee

The Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM seal helps to ensure that coffee has been grown and harvested using environmentally and socially responsible practices. Certified coffee is grown on farms that adhere to strictly controlled use of agrochemicals, where forests are protected, rivers, soils and wildlife conserved; workers are treated with respect, properly equipped, and their children are given access to education and medical care. 

CARING FOR THE LAND. CARING FOR THE PEOPLE. 

Coffee farms that earn the Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM seal are audited to help ensure that they maintain rigorous environmental, social, and economic standards and are continuing to make improvements. The Rainforest Alliance works with coffee farmers to improve their livelihoods and the health and well-being of their communities. Since 1995, the Rainforest Alliance has strengthened the position of coffee farmers by training them in methods that boost yields and safeguard the health of the land for future generations.

SOWING THE SEEDS FOR A BETTER TOMORROW. 

In 2006, Zavida began a journey of exquisite taste by roasting our first batch of coffee harvested from Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM farms. Our enthusiastic Roast Master prepared a special blend and roasted it by eye. Our team of expert cuppers then decided that the coffee was not only great… it was delightful. Thus began our love affair with the green frog seal. Now, over 50% of the coffee we source is harvested from Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM farms and that number continues to grow each year.
