Why Is It Important to Buy Only Organic Dark Roast Coffee?
During the normal coffee growing process, farmers are exposed to large amounts of chemicals while spraying the crops & while handling them during harvest. These pesticides, insecticides, herbicides & fungicides can cause cancer & can damage the reproductive & nervous systems. When growing Organic Dark Roast Coffee, no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals are ever used. This means cleaner beans, air, land & water. It's better for your health, the environment & for the farmers who grow the beans. When you see USDA Organic, certified by Quality Assurance International on the label, you know that you're getting the highest quality coffee.

Farmer Quote: “I have personally seen the impact of the Fair Trade program as it goes beyond simple economic help. Yes, it has helped us improve production., but one support that the premium cannot quantify is at the cultural & organizational level. For example, some of the premium has been used for general assemblies & as ANEI works in four indigenous territories, it has strongly helped preserve our culture through these meetings where we brainstorm, exchange ideas, & motivate one another. For us Arawaks, the rules of Fair Trade have been easy to follow since our culture already matches many of themes: no discrimination, democratic methods, solidarity, protection of the environment. So we not only grow economically, but as people & a society as well. ”
