We believe in a sustainable future
We believe that we must all contribute to a sustainable future. That is why we are working on several initiatives aimed at securing positive change that is beneficial beneficial for the environment.
Café Coco primarily serves organic products, and you will find no plastic bottles in the minibar. All towels and bed linens are made from organic cotton. The entire building has been renovated with energy and water saving solutions and, like Cofoco's restaurants, the hotel is covered by sustainable energy from Cofoco's own solar park in Nees, North West Jutland.

What a difference a tree makes
We want to make a positive difference in the world. That is why we plant fruittrees on behalf of our guests in vulnerable areas of Tanzania and Mexico for the benefit of the climate, the environment and the local community.
If you book a room through our website, we will donate a tree on your behalf. This way, your stay with us becomes CO2 neutral as a tree absorbs around 1 ton of CO2 during its lifetime.
We have planted fruit trees in the Usambara Mountains in Tanzania through our partnership with the British NGO Green Earth Appeal and in Veracruz, Mexico in collaboration with local landowner Marcos Aguilar, who is also Cofoco's coffee partner. The tree planting projects have provided jobs, education and crops for locals in both areas.
We hope you will help us donate as many trees as possible by booking your stay with us through the below link.
To this date, we have planted 983 trees on behalf of our guests.
