Shade Grown Coffee

How your coffee is grown has a huge impact on tropical forests and wildlife. Shade grown coffee is farmed in the natural canopy of a diverse habitat, sustaining and increasing the bird species (natural pest deterrents). Sun grown coffee is farmed on land destroyed by slash and burn agricultural practices and necessitates the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Shade Grown Coffee and Saving Migratory Birds describes how your coffee choices matter.
