There are several important ways to improve the taste of the morning cup of coffee.
One way to Do Your Part is to seek out fair trade and organic coffees. Other than looking for your favorite flavor; look at the labels to find out how the coffee is cultivated and produced. Seeking out organic coffees is important. Look for the USDA organic seal and you will know that your coffee bean was grown without pesticides that pollute our land and water.
This also means the farmers working that land and the people living in the surrounding communities will not come into contact with those toxic chemicals either.
Another important label is one that says fair trade. This ensures that those working to produce your coffee are paid a fair price and are working in good conditions. There is one last aspect to look for. If you can, seek out shade-grown coffees. This means the valuable land used to grow the coffee was not clear cut which means the natural habitat for birds and other animals remains intact.
Do Your Part as you enjoy your Cup of Joe; knowing that you picked the perfect blend for you and the planet.
