ORGANIC & SHADE GROWN COFFEE
95% of the coffee we purchase is shade and organically cultivated. This is important because shade allows the coffee fruit to stay on the plant longer, maturing to the beat of nature’s time clock. This slower, natural ripening permits the absorption of nutrients from the rich forest loom and development of the coffees unique full-bodied flavor.
Shade trees provide nitrogen rich mulch, suppress weed growth, and prevent soil runoff. The trees produce food for the small farmers, who in turn sell the excess for additional income. The tree canopy also creates a sanctuary for bird and animal life. The large bird population is an excellent natural insect and pest control: the biodiversity insures a far lower risk of infestation and disease in the coffee plants.
The result is a lessening and when organically grown, non-existent need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
