Shade coffee at HowStuffWorks

by JulieCraves on August 30, 2009

There’s an article up on the popular Discovery web site HowStuffWorks on shade coffee. The author contacted me a couple of months ago; Coffee & Conservation is cited frequently as a resource (under the common alias “Coffee Habitat”) and my photos of Finca Esperanza Verde from this post are used in the sections “Growing coffee in the shade” and “How shady is shade coffee?”

Speaking of Finca Esperanza Verde, the new crop is now available from Counter Culture Coffee as Cafe San Ramon. I can personally vouch for the shade, birds, and biodiversity present on this farm. I’ve just started drinking my first bag, and it’s excellent as always.
