How Organic is Organic Coffee?

As you enjoy your weekend morning coffee, or depending on your time zone maybe that’s your afternoon espresso, or even your post dinner digestive beverage also known as espresso, here’s an interesting story. When I travel I seek out one-off locally owned coffee houses. When I talk with the owners I’m often told that their coffee beans are indeed organic, and the conditions on the coffee farms are indeed “sustainable” but that they as shop owners, as well as the coffee farmers, don’t have the funds to get all the necessary certificates to say so. This article delves into whether it’s really possible to even monitor conditions for all these certifications. See what you think. Are you buying only sustainable-certified coffee?

    You might want to retitle this post. Organic and sustainable are 2 different things. Some people only care about the former. The article addresses the latter
