About the Event

Coffee Friends and Supporters of Building New Hope: 

We would like to invite you to our next Coffee Lab series. What does it mean to be bird-friendly?

Join us on zoom Wednesday, July 21st from 6:00pm to 7:00pm to learn what  it means to drink bird-friendly coffee. There is no shortage of labels  and phrases to attract environmentally-conscious consumers: "'organic',  '"shade-grown", "sustainable", yet very few coffees have earned the  Smithsonian's bird-friendly certification. In this Coffee Lab, Justine Bowe from The  Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and Dr. Chase D. Mendenhall from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History will discuss how the "Bird-Friendly" gold standard does more than other eco-friendly seals to protect habitat, and the importance of preserving endangered species and natural habitats.  We will also talk about how consuming bird-friendly coffee benefits  other wildlife, coffee farmers, your health and the health of  the planet. Please join us for this important discussion on how the  coffee you drink impacts the environment!

The Coffee Lab Series consist of 5-6 events throughout the year (the third Wednesday of every other month at 6:00pm)! Why does organic matter? How can coffee help birds? What benefits does fair trade bring? Learn about the whole world within your cup of joy with Building New Hope’s new year-long project THE COFFEE LAB SERIES. 

Building  New Hope is proud to be the ONLY local Pittsburgh organization that has a direct trade relationship with an organic, bird-friendly coffee cooperative in Nicaragua. Please learn more about the  work we do at www.BuildingNewHope.org.

Thank you for supporting Building New Hope, and we hope you can join us on the 21st!
