Pest Management

2019 Seeds Fund Recipient

2019 Seeds Fund Recipient

During a climate adaptation workshop we did with Kushikamana, producers identified pests as one of their biggest issues. With the changes in the climate there, they are finding new pests that they are unfamiliar with, as well as increased levels of more familiar pests like the coffee borer beetle. ICIPE, the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology, will help train Kushikamana members on how to scout for pests and how to manage the pests and diseases without excessive chemical use.

    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.
