We all know CO2 is a major contributor to global warming, and the roasting process can produce an enormous amount of CO2 over the course of a year. One of Jumping Bean Coffee’s® founding pillars is a focus on environmental responsibility, so we not only offer the best blends and exotic single origin coffees available anywhere, but we also offer them all in our unique ECO2Roast® format.
That’s right, we have modified our roasting process to exact the same rich taste from our premium coffee, while producing 85% less CO2 emissions. This means that for every 1lb. (454 g) of ECO2Roast coffee we produce, you save the world about 1lb of carbon waste. In practical terms, this carbon footprint reduction is equivalent to a 60 watt light bulb burning 24 hours a day for 17 days straight. On a larger scale, the carbon footprint reduction from 300,000 pounds of ECO2Roast coffee is equivalent to taking roughly 3,000 cars off the road.
Couple that with our focus on Fair Trade and organic coffees wherever possible, and you have a truly guilt-free cup of coffee!
