Special Notes – Rhinos in Sumatra and Java face critical endangerment due to habitat destruction and poaching. Rhinos have been pushed out by mainly palm farms (for crude palm oil), logging, and even coffee plantations. We have named this coffee in honor of the lovely animal Rhino – to bring awareness to critically endangered rhinos alive today.
