Coffee remains one of America’s favorite beverages. Increasingly, consumers are inquiring about the origins of the coffee they drink: How it’s grown, who grows it, and how coffee farming is impacting the environment.
Several coffees now offer different labels, including:
- Organic: Growing practices emphasize the avoidance of synthetic chemicals, including synthetic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers.
- Shade Grown: The coffee plants are grown under a natural canopy of trees and foliage, which also provide homes for resident and migratory birds.
- Fair Trade: Coffee is purchased from farmers at a fair and reasonable price, which in turn promotes higher living standards, thriving communities and more sustainable farming practices.
