Throughout Central America, the equivalent to 6,500 hectares of forest is consumed each year to supply the firewood for drying the coffee harvest. As the global demand for coffee increases, forests are cleared for coffee plantations, contributing significantly to deforestation, biodiversity loss and climate change.
