Drinking coffee that comes from coffee trees planted by reclaiming rainforest will lead to the extinction of species. Nowadays, rainforest is overly reclaimed and cultivated into coffee fields for economic reasons. It comes with an ecological crisis with huge danger to many different species. Toucan, Bird of Paradise, Parrot, are the precious species in rainforest. To shape their appearance by using coffee grounds reveals a certain feeling of fossil-like animals, moreover, by putting them separately onto the trees symbolized the lost of lives.
