Organic Coffee: What you should know?
What is organic coffee?
Organic coffee is coffee that is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and other chemicals. This means that organic coffee is not only better for the environment, but it is also healthier for the people who consume it.
Coffee is one of the most heavily sprayed crops in the world, with conventional coffee growers using large amounts of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to protect their crops from pests and diseases. These chemicals can have negative effects on the environment, including contaminating soil and water sources, as well as harming wildlife and beneficial insects.
In addition to being better for the environment and potentially healthier for consumers, organic coffee also tends to be of higher quality than conventionally grown coffee. This is because organic coffee is typically grown at higher elevations, which allows the coffee beans to develop more slowly and become more complex in flavor.
However, there are some drawbacks (to the farmers and producers) to organic coffee. For example, because organic coffee is grown without synthetic pesticides, it is more susceptible to pests and diseases. This can make it more difficult and expensive to produce, which can result in higher prices for consumers.
Despite these challenges, the demand for organic coffee continues to grow. In fact this is why, here at West Berkshire Roastery, we use organic coffee as standard.
Is organic coffee better for you?
We believe organic coffee is better for you than regular coffee. Organic coffee is grown without the use of potentially harmful and lethal chemicals, meaning it preserves more of the antioxidants present in coffee beans. Studies have also shown that organic coffee has more antioxidants than regular coffee. Additionally, organic coffee is better for the environment because it doesn’t use harmful chemicals on its crops, which helps keep the soil healthier. Finally, organic coffee is safer for coffee growers, as it doesn’t expose them to harmful chemicals.
In conclusion, organic coffee is a great choice for coffee lovers who are concerned about the environment and their health. By choosing organic coffee, you can enjoy a delicious and flavourful cup of coffee while supporting sustainable and environmentally friendly farming practices.
