Coffee farms are typically situated on very fragile hillsides in tropical rain forests. These eco-systems, sometimes called "the lungs of the planet", are a delicate arrangement of thousands of species. Organic farming is sensitive to this and works with the natural order of things, not against it.
We can find flaws in the Organic classification system. But ultimately, it is our responsibility as consumers to try and make the best informed choices. We are working to make that process easier for you by being open and transparent about who we buy from, what they bring to us and what we bring to them.
