Organic coffee

Organic coffee is grown using a production system intended to replenish and maintain soil fertility, without the use of toxic and persistent pesticide and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture.

Many factors are taken into consideration when coffee is considered for organic certification. For example, the coffee farms fertilizer must be 100% organic. Some organic fertilizer options include chicken manure, coffee pulp, bocachi and general compost.
Most organic standards require ecological management of farms, soil conservation practices and require intensive on-farm record-keeping, among many other criteria. Organic standards prohibit the use of non-approved synthetic fertilizers, synthetic pesticides and genetically modified.

Organic coffee was found to have more antioxidants and fewer pesticide residues than non-organic brands.
