Responsible sourcing

We don’t just make great tasting coffee, we also source it responsibly and ensure the farming communities that harvest our beans are taken care of.

Rainforest Alliance

Coffee cherries

We recognise that to have a sustainable coffee business we need to invest in a sustainable coffee supply, ensuring that our coffee is grown in a way that protects the environment and allows the communities growing our coffee to thrive.

The Rainforest Alliance is a non-profit organisation, working to create a future in which people and nature thrive in harmony.

By working together with diverse stakeholders including farmers, businesses, consumers and more, the Rainforest Alliance is building an alliance to improve livelihoods, protect biodiversity, amplify the voices of farmers and forest communities, and help them mitigate and adapt to climate change.

100% of our coffee and hot chocolate is from Rainforest Alliance certified farms

Since we started our partnership with the Rainforest Alliance, we’ve been working together to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing the planet today by changing the way we produce, source and consume the world’s natural resources.

Coffee farmers

Every Rainforest Alliance Certified farm is required to meet strict guidelines for better farming methods and working conditions, as well as better care for nature.

This helps to ensure that the coffee, or cocoa, we serve in all our drinks has been produced responsibly and sustainably.

So, you can be confident that you’re supporting the farmers and forest communities who are looking after our natural resources whenever you choose to drink Costa Coffee, proudly sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms.
