Marna, excellent presentation. Finally, a coffee article connected to gardening!

I'm a coffee drinker concerned with sustainability which in my mind covers everything from the labor pool, land use, birds... and all the way up the chain to us. Yes, it costs more to support those practices, but what choice do we have if we really care what happens on this lovely blue planet?

Thank You.

thanks Darius, it is indeed a complex subject. Many of the fair trade coffees are not organic or shade grown. It's difficult to do the right thing in all areas and sometimes you just have to pick your cause.

Yes, thanks for this important information! I only drink one cup a day, but I will check into the "mountain grown" coffee I drink...
