The Yoro Model is a method of producing coffee designed to restore and conserve forest on private lands (coffee farms) that is currently being demonstrated and refined in Yoro, Honduras.

The Yoro Model Conserves Forests and Creates Green Coffee Jobs

The model combines Integrated Open Canopy™ (sustainable coffee agriculture) with Cafe Solar®; 100% Renewable Energy Carbon Neutral Facilities (sustainable coffee processing) in support of forest protection and restoration at a landscape level throughout the coffee regions of the Yoro Biological Corridor.

The Yoro Biological Corridor Initiative will implement 17 convergent restoration and production programs that seek the sustainable development of the region; which will have greater resilience through adaptation to climate change, while opening stable international markets for the exported products.
