Drawing Down Carbon in Rainforests
February 12, 2021
The dream that inspired me to create Teeccino came while I was working on rainforest preservation projects in Central America in the mid 90’s. In fact, the first Teeccino blend I ever made used vanilla harvested by a community of smallholder families in Mexico who were learning to ‘cure’ vanilla beans just like their ancestors had discovered hundreds of years before. My goal at the time was to give economic value to the standing forests that were rapidly being cut down for timber even though it was illegal.
