Article from Better Beans Coffee Club...
April 2008, Wharton, TX. For over ten years we've been finding America's best small batch roasters and sending their best to you,
but we've never seen a roaster quite like the one we have selected for you this month.
This month, in honor of Earth Day, Better Beans and you are helping with a bit of frog-saving. Seriously!
And who better to show us the way than Tree Frog Coffees of Wharton, TX.
Roast master-owner Janet Goings is a former teacher turned eco-friendly roaster. In making her career change a few years ago,
Janet found that sustainable coffee farming fits her belief system. Sustainable farming is where coffee farmers grow their coffees
under the rainforest canopy, clearing only enough of the underbrush to plant the coffee trees. Ecosystems are not only maintained,
but relied on to protect and grow the crops. It's a harmonious relationship.
And where do the tree frogs come in? Janet, passionate about environmental concerns, explains that tree frogs are acutely sensitive
to environmental problems, akin to the canary in the coal mine. Frog species are disappearing daily, indicating problems such as global warming.
The good news is what's good for the tree frogs is ultimately good for us. This is why Tree Frog Coffees buys 100% certified coffees,
only those meeting the standards of being organically produced, shade grown, or bird friendly.
Not only is sustainable farming better for the frogs, says Janet, it's better for our entire ecosystem, including us.
