A little bit ago, I posted a little note about coffee labels and how overwhelming they all can be. After some research and soul-searching (seriously) I've decided to only drink Fair Trade, Organic, Shade Grown coffee. These three labels will ensure a good life for the coffee farmer and their community, that I am drinking coffee and not pesticides, and that my morning joe is not killing the rain forest.
We started with the can on the left (just finished it) and tomorrow I will open the can on the right. Once that can is gone, we will go local as well. I've heard rumors of a local coffee grinding place so I want to look into that. Then we can help support the small local guy and bring in our own reusable container.
