Organic coffee: all you need to know about organic growing

When we mention coffee, we all know that we´re talking about the world´s most popular drink. Appreciated at breakfast time or during a break with our favourite people, it can be consumed without neglecting health and sustainability. The proof of this comes in the form of organic coffee.
If you´re reading this, it means you´ve heard of it and you want to learn more about the characteristics of organic coffee. Excellent! All you need to do is keep reading this article.

What does organic coffee mean?
What is organic coffee? Organic coffee is coffee grown without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilisers, in complete respect for nature but, above all, we´re talking about the integrity of the end product.

Certification of organic coffee
In recent years, organic coffee has been at the centre of fascinating changes, due to the increasing media attention to the quality of the products we eat and drink. To give you an idea, bear in mind that until a few years ago, coffee was certified by a number of private bodies. Later, the European Community prioritised a process to seek uniformity of production, in order to guarantee transparency and safety for the end consumer. For this reason, today the Eurofoglia certification is considered the only one authorised to certify organic coffee.

How is organic coffee grown?
How is organic coffee grown? In the previous paragraph, we described how the use of natural fertilisers and freedom from pesticides and chemicals are the criteria for organic certification. Since no chemicals can be used to protect the plants from attack by harmful insects, growers have to rely on natural methods. And to control invasion by weeds, non-invasive and mechanical methods are used. This means everything is done in full respect for the environment and the plants are not exposed to chemical agents.

Ground organic coffee
In addition to organic coffee beans, Corsini also offers ground organic coffee. Produced on a certified organic Fair Trade plantation in Sumatra, Indonesia, this coffee stands out for its wonderful spicy aroma.
When we´re talking about organic coffee, it´s good to remember that this is a product that facilitates fair trade. Fantastic, isn´t it? As well as being good for the environment, organic coffee is also valuable in a social sense.

Caffè Corsini also offers a range of organic coffee in capsules and pods.
Our pure organic coffee pods, in packs of 18, are the perfect choice if you love the unmistakable flavour of Arabica.

For Nespresso machines, we have Nespresso compatible capsules.
Corsini offers organic coffee capsules: coffee grown exclusively on controlled and certified plantations, where small producers have cultivated it for generations naturally and without the use of chemicals. Caffè Corsini also offers Nespresso compatible capsules of Fair Trade organic Sumatra coffee, a product with an irresistible aroma, thanks to a roasting process that maximises its qualities and characteristics.
