Hi all,

I second what David said about Shade-grown Coffee. There are many bird species that use shade-grown plantations, but few are found in sun-grown coffee plots. Trader Joe's sells a wonderful shade-grown fair-trade organic Ethopian Coffee. Most coffee from Guatemala is shade grown, and the Audubon Shop sells very nice shade grown coffee, as well. Personally, I think it tastes better, too.
