Terrific article, Marna. I had no idea what has been taking place in coffee growing. I only have one cup of instant coffee a day, but your article revealing the impact on habitat destruction and bird migration has caused me to rethink the brand of coffee I buy. I will no longer buy coffee from one of the "big four" until such time that they can demonstrate more sustainable and ethical practices. Good work!

Thanks Margaret. I just went to a health food store where there was only organic coffee and much of it was fair trade. I only saw ONE that said it was shade grown and it was not certified. So it certainly is a task to find bird friendly coffee!
