Station 1 invites you to learn more about how we are connected to coffee growing in Latin America. Did you know that Grimsby birds winter there? In the past in Latin America, coffee has been heavily sprayed and fertilized with synthetic fertilizers. Sprawling massive fields stretch out for miles. While this created high coffee yields it was also devastated the environment and wildlife. Returning to organic methods and going coffee in concert with a rainforest canopy have resulted in beans with a deeper and richer flavour.
