Financially reward coffee farmers for maintaining agroforestry systems while reducing the carbon footprint of the coffee industry? We can do that.
Together with Sander Reuderink ☕️🌍, Founder of coffee social impact startup Carble we talked to Daily Coffee News by Roast Magazine about our joint project, expected to cover a range of 200-600 smallholder coffee farms in Ethiopia’s Guji Zone, near the town of Shakisso.
Thanks to satellite data, we calculate the amount of carbon stored in the existing biomass of agroforestry farms. These calculations will then be included by coffee buyers in their non-financial accounting disclosures, while providing farmers premiums based on the carbon storage calculations.
