Project Overview

Keurig Green Mountain funds this program, called "Blue Harvest," to restore and manage water resources in coffee-producing areas of Central America. Blue Harvest is a three-year program coordinated by Catholic Relief Services (CRS). The premise of this program is that, “good coffee management is good water management.”

Project Results

The objectives of the program are to: (1) Restore and protect water resources to improve the quality and quantity of water (2) Promote sustainable, water-smart coffee farming in critical watersheds (3) Enable effective local water governance With improved watershed management and coffee production practices in Blue Harvest intervention areas, we can improve the drinking water for over 150,000 people living in those watersheds.
