6 Reasons You Should Be Drinking "Bird-Friendly" Coffee

6 Reasons You Should Be Drinking "Bird-Friendly" Coffee | Caffeinated Parrot | Scoop.it
If you're an eco-conscious consumer and a bird lover, choose your coffee brand carefully. Only certified Bird-Friendly coffee ensures protection of habitat.
The Zen Parrot's insight:

“Bird-friendly” coffee is first and foremost shade-grown. Almost all coffee was grown this way until about 1972, when scientists developed a hybrid coffee plant that could grow in full-sun conditions, yielding significantly more beans. There are approximately 6 million acres of coffee-producing farmland worldwide. Since 1972, about 60 percent of that land has been deforested to make room for the hybrid, full-sun variety of coffee plant.
