Organic coffees not only taste better, but it's also better for you and the Earth! Here's how:

1. Organic means it's grown without the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides

So you can be sure that your cup of joe is free of harmful toxins. Organic products have strict standards on prohibited substances, therefore there are no toxic chemicals in your cup!


2. It's also ethically sourced

So you can be confident that the farmers who grew your coffee were paid a fair price and given fair treatment throughout the production process.


3. Organic crops are often shade-grown

Meaning that it is grown under a canopy of trees which provides habitat for wildlife and helps to keep the soil healthy. Shade-grown coffee also tends to have a more complex flavor than sun-grown coffee.

It is more environmentally friendly than conventional coffee.


5. It's typically roasted in small batches

So you can be sure that your coffee is fresh and of high quality.

We hope this article taught you more about organic practices, coffee drinker! Coffee has been shown to have several health benefits, including reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Coffee also contains antioxidants that may help protect against some forms of cancer. However, it is important to note that these health benefits are only seen with moderate coffee consumption (up to three cups per day). Drinking more than three cups of coffee a day has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and other health problems. Therefore, moderation is also important when consuming good coffee.
