Natural Organic Coffee

Natural organic coffee is your best bet for great coffee without traces of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers in the cup. Healthy organic coffee is grown using strict environmentally friendly farming practices. In fact, for natural organic coffee to be certified as USDA organic coffee it must meet a strict set of criteria.

Natural Organic Coffee

Natural organic coffee may simply grow beneath the forest canopy on the side of the side of mountain rain forest. Or it may be planted, interspersed with fruit trees, plantain and other trees to provide shade cover. In either case someone tends the coffee farm, harvests the coffee, sorts and stores it and ships it. According to the United States Department of Agriculture the following applies to USDA organic coffee as well as to all organic food production.

“… Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.”

Natural organic coffee certification reliably gives you a safe and flavorful coffee.

Best Brands of Natural Organic Coffee

Our strong preference is for Colombian organic coffee brands. This is coffee from the land of Juan Valdez. It turns out that the Juan Valdez trade name came from the Colombian Coffee Growers Association nearly half a century ago. It is meant to give the buyer assurance that the coffee they purchase is 100% Colombian. So, what are some Colombian organic coffee brands? Here is a thumbnail sketch.

Purchasing Juan Valdez organic coffee, that is to say Colombian organic coffee brands, is easy in Colombia and is easy if it has been exported from Colombia. However, getting Colombian organic coffee brands sent from Colombia can be difficult. You can carry coffee out of Colombia in your luggage but expect to have to soldiers at the airport pin prick your bags of coffee and present them one at a time to a mechanical sniffer and a really large dog to check for drugs. You cannot mail coffee from Colombia to any country in the world.
