Why should you care where your coffee comes from and whether it’s organic? Because it matters. When coffee is grown organically, in the shade, it benefits the environment by keeping rain forests from being cut down and keeping petroleum based fertilizers out of our ecosystem. If you go the extra mile and also buy fair trade you help keep the profits with the growers and cut out a bunch of middle men. Not only does the coffee taste better, but it is better.
