We hope that this video is super useful for the coffee community and it’d be great if it inspires and helps you to reduce your coffee drinking carbon emissions. There’s lots of good work to be done and we need to get started now to keep global temperature rises under 1.5℃, to secure the future of coffee production and to protect the livelihoods of coffee growers.
