Coffee originated as an understory plant, growing in the shade of canopy trees.  Recent forms however have been developed that can live in full sun.  This has led to the clearing of tropical forests and a 90% reduction of bird species in coffee plantations.  Shade-grown coffee plantations remain second only to undisturbed forest for quality bird habitat.  More information and locations for purchasing shade-grown coffee can be found on at www.atlantaaudubon.org, and the Smithsonian Institute http://nationalzoo.si.edu/ConservationAndScience/MigratoryBirds/Coffee/.
