Normal coffee is grown on plantations where diverse rainforest used to grow. A SMBC certification means the coffee is 100% organic and shade grown under conditions that are ecologically sustainable for migratory birds and their habitat. They require a variety of native trees and vegetation around the plantation. With this diversity, each plantation provides habitat for many migrating song birds and provides the farmers with highly productive farms and a better tasting bean.
