ORGANIC + SUSTAINABLE
So why organic coffee and what’s the difference between standard and organic coffee?
First, standard coffee is among the most heavily chemically treated foods in the world. It is steeped in synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and insecticides – a real mouthful with a bad taste. Not only does the environment suffer from this overload, but so do the people who live in it. Farmers are exposed to a high level of chemicals while spraying the crops and while handling them during harvest. The surrounding communities are also impacted through chemical residues in the air and water.
In the case of organic coffee, there are no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals used in growing or production, which means cleaner beans, air, land, and water. The coffee is grown with only organic fertilizers, like coffee pulp or compost. Organic farms also combat climate change by emitting less carbon than chemical farms, while also sequestering significant amounts of carbon.
Organic coffee beans are richer in healthful antioxidants and we know that our blends will taste just as good freshly brewed at home incorporated in your morning ritual as they would in a beautiful artisan coffee shop.
We are living in a world now where every environmental decision we make can have an impact, so by choosing to buy organic is choosing a better future.
