We need all coffee 100 percent organic; unless you like pesticides in coffee. up and smell the coffee

An email came my way today that I had to add to my posts. I totally related to the reader and am more aware that we need to start demanding 100 percent fair and organic coffee all the time. If not we are dead!!

The reader writes: I’m the kind of person who likes routine, and my morning routine revolves around coffee: I drink two cups every morning, while reading the newspaper, before I’m ready to face the world. If you’re like me, your world is changing. Have you noticed that the price of coffee has been going up? Global warming is contributing to lower crop yields and a declining supply of coffee beans—threatening crops in virtually every major coffee producing region of the world. And that’s just one example of the way global warming is already affecting our lives. This should be a wake-up call for all of us. —Karla
