Support Friends of Rogers & your favorite
song bird with a cup of coffee!

Deadline Extended, orders are due Friday, May 8th.

Friends of Rogers is switching switching coffee roasters to Caffe Ibis. With this switch we are able to offer about 30 different varieties that are triple certified. A triple certification means they are certified organic through both Quality Assurance International (QAI) and USDA, Fair Trade certified and Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center (SMBC) certified shade grown. A SMBC certification means the coffee is certified to be organic and shade grown under conditions that are ecologically sustainable for migratory birds and their habitat. Each variety can be ordered in 12oz or 5 pound bags in either ground or whole bean. A win for birds, wildlife, diverse habitat, Friends of Rogers and you when you take your first morning sip.
