5 Reasons to Drink Organic, Fair Trade Coffee

December 08, 2017

Don’t you love the smell of coffee brewing? We can’t wait for that first cup of coffee in the morning. Or maybe you drink coffee throughout the day, enjoying a Latte in the afternoon. Before you buy that next Latte, let’s talk about why you should buy organic, fair trade coffee.
The first thing you might think of when you hear the word “organic: is: if it’s organic it’s expensive, right? Do you know what “fair-trade” means and why you should care? Buying organic, fair-trade, coffee will ensure that you are drinking the best coffee around.

 “We strive for the cleanest and healthiest ways to experience our coffee. Organic sustainability gives us this high-quality coffee to share and be proud of.  In today's age of processed foods, people want clean natural alternatives.

Martin Kabaki, Growers Alliance 

Nutrition

Buying organic, fair trade coffee means you are making a healthier choice. It means there is no chemical flavoring added, no chemicals like chlorine added for processing the coffee beans (used to clean the beans) and the roasting process itself means a healthier coffee bean. The organic soil where the coffee beans are grown is an important factor as well. Organic foods overall have more nutritional value due to the organic soil that is not depleted of minerals. Did you know that coffee beans are full of healthy minerals such as B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, copper and more? If they don’t grow in organic soil, the amount and quality of these minerals will be greatly diminished.

 

Low Acid

Due to acid reflux, GERD, or some other stomach ailment, millions of consumers in the U.S. cannot tolerate the acid present in coffee. If you are one of those people, you should find that you can drink multiple cups of Organic coffee with little or no side effects. A full-bodied, dark roast like our Organic Guatemalan Full Bodied Delight Coffee Is a perfect choice for low acid, great taste.

 

Better Taste

Organic, fair-trade coffee tastes better. It’s not bitter and you can taste the true flavors of the coffee that are drawn from the location where the coffee beans grow, similar to the distinct tastes in wines that come from the soil and the region the vines are grown in. Drinking organic, fair-trade coffee from various locations throughout the world will allow you to experience different cultures and natural taste differences in coffee.

Fair Price

When you buy organic, fair-trade coffee, you support local communities and workers in receiving a living wage, one that allows workers to receive a salary that will cover basic food, shelter, medical care and more. When buying from a fair-trade producer, you are investing a small amount in the local community and that money gets re-invested back into the community. Fair-trade is a movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability.

 

No Pesticides

There are studies that show some of the same pesticides that are heavily sprayed on coffee crops have been linked to cancer, hormone issues, and autism. Buy organic and you remove those pesticides from your morning cup of coffee!
