Organic Coffee for Sale

Where can you find organic coffee for sale and how can you know that it is high quality and fresh? The best organic coffee comes from places like Colombia. Arabica coffee is the gold standard for quality but you also want fresh beans and not ones that were in storage for years. And to make sure that your Arabica coffee is organic look for proof of organic coffee certification on the bag.

Organic coffee differs from regular coffee in several aspects. The soil in which organic coffee is grown must have been verified as free from prohibited substances for at least three years. In addition there must be distinct boundaries between land on which organic coffee is grown and land where pesticides, herbicides, and prohibited chemical fertilizers are used. This guarantees that drift of substances sprayed or otherwise applied on adjacent land will not contaminate the organic plot of land. Organic coffee certification includes the adherence to a specific and verifiable plan for all practices and procedures from planting to crop maintenance, to harvest, de-husking, bagging, transport, roasting, packaging, and final transport. Along the way procedures must be in place at every step to insure that there is no contamination of the healthy organic coffee produced in pristine soil with regular coffee produced on soil exposed to herbicides, pesticides, and organic fertilizers.

There are many great coffees grown by organic methods but your only proof of organic content is the USDA, UTZ or Rainforest Alliance seal on the bag. That means someone visited the coffee farm and checked to make sure the farmer was following set guidelines.

Old versus Fresh

A few years ago coffee farmers in Brazil put coffee beans into storage rather than sell them because prices were so low. Then, after a few years, coffee prices went up and coffee farmers sold every bean that they had. Unfortunately, a lot of that old coffee was only good for sale to institutional buyers. In our recent article about organic coffee with the most antioxidants we wrote about the importance of coffee freshness.

And, before that, we wrote about how to get freshly roasted Colombian coffee.
