          Even after the coffee beans are grown, they have an impact on the environment as they continue on their path as commodities. To process 100 lbs. of coffee beans, 12 kilowatts of energy gets consumed. By harnessing solar power to dry the beans, 10 kilowatts of energy is able to be saved. As Victor Julio Arce explains in the video, this Ecological Drying process does not contribute to CO2 emissions, does not create deforestation, and allows for the farmers to get a fair price for their products.
