Creating a sustainable café takes a great deal of mindfulness and devotion -- and those of you that purchase high-grown, shade-grown, ethically-sourced arabicas are 90% the way there! Finding excellent, sustainable coffee is by far the greatest hurdle to operating a sustainable café. These rest of it -- finding sustainable décor, cups, waste disposal options, etc. is the easy bit. It just takes a few easy swaps to turn your cafe from sustainably-sourced to environmentally-friendly.
