Why we are not “Fair Trade Certified” or “Organic Certified”
Fair Trade is a body aimed at assisting small farmers around the world. In order to be certified, farms must be smaller than 5 hectares – ours has over 400. However, we are Rainforest Alliance certified, which ensures superior farming methods, healthy working conditions & employee housing, and respect for the environment.
Our coffee is not organic. However...
We follow strict environmental rules ensuring that defensive agents are applied to our plants in the precise recommended way so it is safe for the employees, and the environment. This yields beans free of any artificial substances.
