Organic coffee is grown without the use of synthetic chemicals or pesticides. Coffee labelled as organic must be certified in the country or origin and, effective 2002, roasters selling organic coffee must also be certified under the USDA National Organic Program, which has strict processing and labelling guidelines.
Production must be actively organic, including organic composting and environmental protection of watersheds and soils. Natural products and improved crop husbandry are actively encouraged. Production must be actively organic and independently audited for at least two years before certification is granted. Many different certifying agencies exist to process certification at origin and in the US.
Why not try Witham’s Colombian Organic or Honduras Organic.
