What it means

Shade-Grown vs. Sun-Grown: below the green line is Rainforest Alliance-certified shade-grown coffee on Hacienda Miramonte – Willows Estate, Naranjo, Alajuela, Costa Rica. The area surrounded with red is a neighboring sun-grown coffee plantation. If you were a bird, a monkey, or a sloth, where would you go? The difference is dramatic.
