Our coffee is grown free of any synthetic fertilisers, chemicals or pesticides in any stage of its production.
This means cleaner beans, air, land and water.
Our coffee is sourced from smaller micro coffee farmers, not commercial plantations.
These micro farmers cannot afford to use chemicals to grow their coffee, nor can they afford to get organic certification which realistically has no guarantee that chemicals have not been used between annual inspections, or that chemicals have not been applied to the plot for at least 3 years prior to the harvest that is labeled organic.
Here at 1080 Grind, we only use beans from these micro farms which are grown in high altitudes and therefor have a natural defence against pest and disease.
This means our beans are grown in a more traditional rainforest environment and do not require the use of chemicals.
Let’s spill the beans on organic coffee.
It’s all well and good to use organic coffee, however, if you are using additives such as non-organic milk and/or non-organic sugar, then it really defeats the purpose and ruins the end goal of producing a truly organic coffee.
It’s definitely a better percentage of “organicness” if you do use organic coffee but a lot of people say they sell/consume organic coffee but they taint it with non-organic additives.
…….Food for thought.
