When one thinks of a “break”, whether at work, at school, or simply taking a moment for oneself, it’s just not the same without coffee. Thanks to its social and energising power it has been an integral part of “the break” for decades. And if the coffee is organic, then the break is even more enjoyable. What exactly does this mean?
The best organic coffee on the market is grown and processed according to eco-friendly methods, meaning that it is respectful of the environment in every way: the beans are farmed without the use of chemical substances and in total respect of the surrounding natural habitat This rigorously ensures that areas are not deforested in order to increase production.
The use of fertilisers is permitted, with the only restriction being that these are natural and not harmful, while pesticides are strictly forbidden. Instead the plants are protected using natural methods like other plants or insects, all practices that have been passed down over the centuries by those populations that have a close relationship to coffee.
The vegetative aspect of an organic coffee plantation is interesting. Often, in fact, in intensive farming, the natural vegetation which grows around the coffee plant is eliminated in order to allow more space, with a subsequent increase in the use of chemicals used to nourish the soil.
Meanwhile, in the case of organic farming, the surrounding vegetation is preserved, or at the very least replaced by leguminous plants, known for naturally releasing important nutritive substances into the ground.
The wonderful thing is that all of this is also transferred into the final beverage’s flavour and aroma. Coffee that is farmed using natural methods preserves all of those characteristics, which vary from soil to soil, that the local terrain passes on to the plant.
