cup of coffee you ever had, it was likely Shade Grown coffee, it is grown
without fertilizers, chemicals, or pesticides.

tree shade (canopies) without cutting down vast areas of forest and
maintains migratory bird patterns between North and South America. Arabica
coffee beans grow better and richer in the shade.
