While I buy organic, shade grown, coop, ohhhhhh soooo politically correct coffee from Cafe Mam,   
I hope you are making this statement lightly. People who grow and pick coffee for corporate plantation owners suffer, and suffer bad. Pesticides can be sprayed by plane while the workers are in the field, pay is pathetic, living conditions often unsound and unsanitary, no health insurance, no benefits or other worker comp or protection.
Take nothing for granted, ever, especially a cup of coffee.
If this rubs any of you the wrong way, look deeper within.
