What about organic certified coffee?

At OR coffee we don’t buy coffee for their labels. For example all our Ethiopian coffees are sustainably grown, pesticide free or ‘organic’, but unfortunately we cannot call them "Organic Certified". The reason being official certification is too expensive for most producers. The same is true for us, as roasters we actually pay an extra fee for every bag of organic coffee we roast.

Does this mean we are against organic certified coffees?

No, of course not! We believe strongly that sustainable farming is an important step towards a better future for our planet. For this reason we work with organic certified producers, like our Brazilian friends from the family Dutra, who have worked many years towards producing coffee in a sustainable way. We are very proud of them! It is thanks to their hard work that we can sell organic certified specialty coffee in Belgium.

It is however important to be aware of these labels, because organic coffee is not necessarily specialty coffee. At OR Coffee quality will always be first.
