American Redstarts are migratory birds native to this region. You may see them leaving town in the coming days: Each winter, they fly south and nest in coffee trees.
As an ornithology enthusiast and the founder of Redstart Roasters, Matthew Parmelee feels a connection to these winged creatures.
Established in 2017, his company sources high-quality beans from bird-friendly farms and educates consumers on the importance of sustainable growing practices in bird habitats and other ecologically diverse areas of the globe. In doing so, Redstart Roasters has earned the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center’s Bird-Friendly Coffee Certification.
