Climate-friendly coffee from Costa Rica
Climate-friendly methods also reduce costs
Over half of the emissions in coffee production arise from the fact that the plants are chemically fertilized. Organic waste generated during production is responsible for a further 30-40 percent of emissions. After all, only the coffee beans, i.e. the kernels of the plant, can be used - the peel and pulp are biodegraded. As the waste slowly breaks down, it releases emissions.
In training courses, the participating farmers are introduced to sustainable agricultural methods with which they can reduce their emissions. For example, they learn to use chemical fertilizers more efficiently and to use organic waste for production. The waste can be used, for example, to heat roasting ovens and thus reduce wood consumption. The unused remains of the coffee fruit can also be used as fertilizer and coffee plants provide other important nutrients. With these and other methods, coffee producers not only reduce emissions, but also save costs.
A third of the acreage in Costa Rica should be cultivated sustainably
Between 2015 and 2019, more than 8,900 coffee producers took part in the training and familiarized themselves with the climate-friendly methods. Almost 500 local advisors from the National Coffee Institute (ICAFE) and the Ministry of Agriculture (MAG) trained by GIZ support the farmers in putting what they have learned into practice.
