2019 Seeds Fund Recipient

Cueva de los Llanos used a Seeds grant to build six apiaries with five hives each. The bees will increase pollination of coffee and food crops, generating income from increased yields as well as from sales of bee products like honey.

This project was identified as an impactful climate change adaptation solution through the climate adaptation workshop AGROUNIDOS did using our methodology.

  • Seeds Program

    Counter Culture Coffee collects $0.01 from every pound of coffee sold to fund our Seeds program. Annually, $1 per pound of our winter coffee blend, Iridescent, goes to further increase our contribution. Seeds offers financial grants to producers and producer organizations we work with to implement sustainability projects they identify as beneficial. To date, we’ve allocated over $280,000 to Seeds projects.
