Organic Coffee Shop
Where is the easiest place to buy healthy organic coffee? Is there such a thing as an organic coffee shop? Your local coffee roaster or corner coffee shop may well be an ideal organic coffee shop. However, because of the popularity of coffee in general it is unlikely that you will find a bricks and mortar organic coffee shop solely devoted to organic coffee. If you choose a coffee roaster as your organic coffee shop you will have access to organic whole bean coffee, roasted to your specifications and in the quantities you request. On the other hand if your corner coffee shop is your organic coffee shop, you can drop in any time during business hours and get a freshly roasted cup of organic coffee and leave the purchasing, storing, roasting, and brewing to them.
When you get your coffee from an organic coffee shop you will typically get USDA organic coffee. This is coffee
”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.”
Look for organic coffee certification at your organic coffee shop and drink coffee that you can trust to be pure and grown under sustainable conditions.
