Rainforest Alliance Certified Food Products: Yuban Coffee

Updated on September 28, 2010

Yuban Coffee

I love Yuban coffee so much I had to write a coffee review. When shopping for the best flavor of coffee I came across Yuban coffee from Kraft foods which supports the Rainforest Alliance. As much as I am interested in supporting the efforts of the Alliance, it is really great coffee! If you are a fan of the over-roasted of Starbucks, this may not be your type of coffee. I found that both the Original and Dark Roast flavors of Yuban coffee are excellent and rich in flavor.

Not only does Yuban coffee affordable as other brands like Maxwell House and Foldger’s, it is often cheaper. Yuban is made by Kraft foods and the coffee appeals to those looking for a good cup of coffee and those looking for a way to help the environment at the same time.

What is the Rainforest Alliance?

Yuban coffee supports rainforest sustainability efforts and improving the lives of coffee growers and their communities. The cause not only focuses on environmental efforts, but the people who grow the product. The efforts of the Rainforest Alliance with Yuban coffee concentrate on three main initiatives: environmental protection, social development and economic development of the regions where coffee is grown.  To read more, please visit the links below to see how drinking Yuban coffee supports these efforts. The key to sustainability of the environment and quality of life is through economic development as well.

Teas and Juices

Naked Juice has partnered with the Rainforest Alliance to include Rainforest Alliance certified bananas as an ingredient in their beverages. This coincides with Naked Juice's commitment to provide the best ingredients in their products. The company also promotes responsible use of resources and encourages recycling of the bottles and by 2010 will only make plastic bottles from other recycled bottles.

Kopius Teas, seller of natural teas and herbs, includes Rainforest Certified and Fair Trade tea and herb ingredients in their products. Teas are available for purchase online at


Cocoa is another large crop besides coffee that has been getting increased attention over the past few years as a crop many North American companies.

Kraft foods is also purchasing a larger portion of cocoa from Rainforest Alliance certified sources for its products for premium chocolate sold in North America and Europe. Bloomer Chocolate is the largest coco bean processor in North America and another company committed to purchasing certified cocoa for products.

      I always buy Yuban. The last time there were two (2) choices.

      Traditional and Original. I do not believe that I saw "Traditional" in the past. What is the difference?
