Organic Coffee Standards
Certified Organically Grown
Independent third party certifiers inspect our farms annually to the highest international standards guaranteeing that our coffee is 100% chemical free. Inspectors test soil, leaf and beans for chemical residue and audit the shipping of the beans to prevent blending or spraying of beans. All Urth coffees are fully inspected, documented and certified annually.
Heirloom means that the trees have never been genetically modified, and are like their ancient ancestors found growing wild in the rainforests. Heirloom species such as Bourbon, Geisha, Heirloom Culitvar, Typica (to name a few) can grow up to twenty feet tall, require deep shade, and produce less coffee yield than hybridized trees. Heirloom coffee has superior flavor, has a more distinctive aroma, and is naturally lower in acid for easier digestion.
Our farmers use a holistic approach to grow superior coffee while protecting the longevity of the soil including composting, intercropping and cross cropping, natural pest control and rain water collection. Composting is comprised of collecting coffee fruit, skins, and all organic debris to make rich, natural fertilizer for future crops. Our sustainable techniques play a major role in protecting soil vitality, yielding healthier crops, and providing economic diversity for the growers.
