Shade Grown Organic Coffee

Shade growen

You may enjoy your daily cup of best coffee, but you probably do not have any idea what goes on to get that cup of coffee to you, starting from the actual process of growing coffee. In fact, you probably have no idea that there is more than one way to grow coffee. Coffee can either be sun grown or shade grown. You may not even be able to tell the difference between the two unless you are a coffee connoisseur. Though you may not be able to tell the difference, there are some distinct differences between the two from taste to actual environmental impacts as a result of the growing method.

Traditionally, coffee was shade grown. After some time, people realized that they could get more yield from their coffee plants by moving towards a sun grown method of growing. Sun grown coffee requires major de-forestation to creat field of coffee trees. Groing coffee in sun is generally considered to be a lower quality coffee. If we are to take the amount of time the coffee berry is spent connected to the plant and its growth to harvest into consideration, and consider more time connected to the earth as “Better higher quality” then, Shade grown coffee is a better higher quality coffee than coffee sun grown, and it has a sweeter taste. This is because shade grown coffee beans will mature at a slower pace than sun grown coffee. This means that there are more natural sugars and an enhanced flavor as a result.

In addition to the taste benefits, there are also health and environmental benefits to choosing shade grown coffee. Shade grown coffee is organically grown, meaning that there are no chemicals used in the growing process no deforestation.
