What is organic gourmet coffee?
Organic gourmet coffee is coffee that grows without the use of any insecticides or pesticides in healthy detoxified soil. The coffee plants are not genetically modified. The coffee growers cultivate and prepare the beans without using any pesticides. In fact, from planting to the packaging, there is nothing artificial about the process. Latin America countries produce 75% of all the organic coffee.
For growers to achieve Organic status, the United States requires three conditions:
- The land must be free of synthetic pesticides
- Appropriate distance between the organic coffee plants and another conventional crop
- Practice crop rotation to prevent nutrient depletion and soil erosion
