  Why Buy Shade-Grown Coffee?

  When people argue about whether coffee is good f health, they're usually thinking of the health of the coffee drinker. Is it food f your heart? Does it increase blood pressure? Does it help you concentrate? However, coffee affects the health of the human population in other ways, too.

  Traditionally, coffee bushes were planted under the canopy(树冠)of taller indigenous(土生土长的)trees. However, me me farmers in Latin America are defesting the l to grow full-sun coffees. At first, this increases production because me coffee bushes can be planted if there aren’t any trees. With increased production come increased profits.

  Unftunately, defesting f coffee production immediately decreases local-wildlife habitat. Native birds nest hide from predats(捕食者)in the tall trees migrating birds rest there.

  Furtherme, in the long term, the full-sun method also damages the ecosystem because me chemical fertilizers pesticides are needed to grow the coffee. The fertilizers pesticides kill insects that eat coffee plant, but then the birds eat the poisoned insects also die. The chemicals kill sicken other animals as well, can even enter the water that people will eventually drink.

  Ftunately, farmers in Central South America are beginning to grow me coffee bushes in the shade. We can suppt these farmers by buying coffee with such labels as "shade grown" "bird friendly." Sure, these varieties might cost a little me. But we're paying f the health of the birds, the l, ourselves, the planet. I think it's wth it.
