Is Together Coffee “shade grown?”
Yes. “Shade Grown” is a term to describe how the coffee is grown. And shade is an attribute to quality coffee...but so is sunshine! In short, both of our roasts are grown on well organized and structured farms where shade trees are planted throughout and integrated throughout the shrubs. Every coffee plant at some point during the day is shaded. African coffees tend to grow extremely wild and no trees were cut down to build either of the farms where we source. Also, all of our farms adhere to the Rainforest Alliance protocol so you can rest assured that no deforestation happens to grow our delicious coffee.
