Please add  one more step before jumping on the shade-grown coffee bandwagon.  It takes many more hectares under cultivation to make a coffee unit of shade grown than the standard intensive method produces.  This is no way to create a jungle.  Best of all is for people to decrease consumption, no matter where we get oil, corn, soybeans, coffee etc.  So whichever coffee you enjoy, limit the quantity.  Thank you.
