Survey: Could You Give Up Coffee?

Maybe you’re like us. You’re already on your second cup and you’re feeling pretty good. You brew at home. You’ve switched to fair trade. You use recycled paper filters (or maybe you even invested in some of those reusable filters).

You’ve got your coffee routine about as green as it will go. Sort of. The question is … could you give it up entirely?

We’re about as crazy for coffee as it gets. A friend recently referred to her coffee problem as an “emotional addiction,” and we think that sounds about right. We love our cofffe. LOVE it. And yet, we know it’s not exactly our greenest habit. This post over at Treehugger has us thinking. (Did you know that coffee is the second most traded commodity after oil?)
