Drink shade grown coffee for the birds

Trader Joe's shade grown coffee contains Arabica beans from Nicaragua.
One of the easiest ways to help migratory birds is to buy shade-grown coffee. Why? Because habitat loss, especially tropical rainforests, have caused a decline in migratory songbird populations. And sun coffee plantations have contributed to this loss. Basically shade grown coffee benefits birds because it provides far better habitat than sun-grown monoculture coffee plantations.

This espresso blend from Trader Joe's carries the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal. For information, go to Rainforest Alliance. And buy the way, it brews a great cup of coffee. 

Happy Birding!
