Posted by theexoticbean on April 10th, 2019

When it comes to selecting the right beverage that gives you instant energy and rejuvenates your mind and spirit, coffee ranks the highest and is the most popular one. In the United States alone, over 450 million cups of coffee are consumed daily. As a responsible coffee addict, you should know the species of coffee, its source of origin and how it has been cultivated. There are in-fact two popular species of coffee- Arabica and Robusta. Arabica is shade-grown bird-friendly coffee species that comes with greater quality and sweeter flavor and makes a large part of coffee in the market.  Robusta- the lower quality species is used to make instant coffee and is produced in large lands as sun-grown coffee.

Selecting shade-grown organic coffee is the best choice as it not only provides a plethora of benefits to your health but is also eco-friendly. Here is a checklist of some compelling reasons as for why you should select and purchase shade-grown coffee and consume 2-3 cups of coffee daily:-

1)Great taste and a healthy choice

Unlike the conventional, instant, sun-grown coffee that usually tastes bitter, shade-grown coffee is more flavourful and taste sweeter than the former. Coffee being a naturally shade-loving plant—the beans grow smaller and denser and develops sweeter taste. Besides this, for the cultivation of sun-grown coffee, there is large scale use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides and the beans with those nasty chemicals fail to deliver the desired health benefits. Shade-grown coffee uses natural microclimate and organic manures to grow that makes them healthier than sun-grown coffee.


Shade-grown coffee besides being more healthy and tasty is also environment-friendly. As this kind of coffee is grown under a large canopy of trees that provides the finest habitat for birds, they are also known as Bird-friendly coffee. The birds which seek the habitat eat insects and pests that would destroy the crop and thus facilitates in a good production of coffee. 

3)Sustainable organic farming practices for cultivation

As shade-grown coffee requires organic farming methods and they are friendly to the environment sustaining lives of trees, birds, and wildlife, they make an ideal choice in this age of global warming. Hence, as a responsible world citizen, you should select shade-grown organic coffee that would reduce the risk of heart disease, liver disease, and Alzheimer and make you fit and healthy and also sustains sound health of the environment and this green planet.

So, make the right choice and go for buying shade-grown, organic coffee for the maximum benefits.
