Consider your Conscience

Reader's Digest recommends you consider your conscience when drinking your coffee. 
"If you consider the "health" of your coffee as more than just what you're putting in your body, but also how your coffee beans are grown, picked, and get to you, Swinney suggests you're taking your coffee habit to a more beneficial level—not only for yourself, but for the world. "Drink clean and with a conscience. Choose fair trade or coffee with other certifications that help third-world farmers improve their living conditions. Give some thought to the packaging involved in single-serve coffee—it requires much more packaging and contains a larger carbon footprint for getting to the store."
