The humble cup of coffee may not produce the high emissions of turning on the car or heating the home, but that is not stopping one coffee producing country from going green. Costa Rica wants its entire industry – that is 52-thousand producers – to be making carbon-free coffee in the next few years.
And one cooperative has Coopedota has got ahead of the game to become the world’s first producer of carbon neutral coffee. Al Jazeera’s John Holman reports from Dota region.
