The coffee tree (coffea arabica) is expected to absorb 60 kg of COin the coming 10 years. 

How much carbon can coffee farms store?

The potential carbon sequestration rates for smallholder sustainable agroforestry systems are 4 tonnes per hectare per year.

  • There are about 660 arabica coffee plants per hectare in Cuetzalan agroforestry, meaning that  one coffee plant can sequester 6.0 kg of carbon per year  
  • It has been estimated that each hectare of sustainable agroforestry in the tropics could potentially offset 5 to 20 ha of deforestation.
  • The average coffee tree produces an annual yield of 1 pound of roasted coffee. It takes about 4,000 hand-picked green coffee beans to make a pound of coffee.
  • 1 pound of roasted coffee makes approx. 50 coffee cups 
  • 1 cup of coffee thus corresponds to 120 g of sequestered carbon
