Bioverde is pleased to annouce Hansa Coffee Company and coffee from the highland forest gardens of Sri Lanka!
We conduct coffee workshops.
We deliver by arrangement.
We conduct compost trainings for organic farming.
Sri Lankan kings knew that the water cycle was dependent on leaving the upland forests intact and cutting any forests above an elevation of 2000 feet was strictly prohibited.
From the time of western colonisation in the 1500s this ancient system began to disintegrate. It accelerated rapidly from the 1800s when the British discovered that coffee grew well and could be a money-earner for their empire.
They cut the virgin upland forests for their coffee plantations, most often burning all the trees that they felled and thus changing the climate and water availability which affects Sri Lanka to this day.
