With Tchibo and Meister Kaffee as sponsors, and in partnership with Pavco and Corona, Expocafé is working with the Seynekun community on getting sanitary facilities for them, which include septic tanks and water efficient bathrooms.
Water Resource Management (WRM) is Expocafé's sustainability initiative, which targets three key sustainability goals: economic, environmental and social, through projects that include working with coffee grower communities on adoption of approaches and habits that lead to reduced and adequate use of water in coffee production and daily activities. Coffees labeled with the WRM's blue coffee bean logo are guaranteed to be produced following responsible water management methods.
At the same time, WRM works on supporting and strengthening those coffee production aspects that impact crop productivity (soil analysis, plant density, age and fertilization), which are directly related with the coffee grower's income. In parallel, the initiative brings training aimed at social improvement, through training on key community, business and coffee topics.
