Many people choose organic coffee perceiving health benefits; however, a bigger
benefit goes unnoticed—with no chemical fertilizers or pesticides used, the big
winner is the environ-
ment. Organic is one of the fastest growing segments of the food industry.
Coffee the way nature intended
For a coffee to be certified USDA Organic, it must be grown
in a manner that excludes the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormone treatments
or steroids. Organic farmers instead must rely on superior growing practices, natural
fertilizers and alternative methods of pest and disease control.
