The Organic Certification process

Certified Organic coffee is produced following methods that comply with the standardized regulations for organic farming. These standards vary worldwide, but organic coffee production strives for ecological balance, conserving biodiversity and recycling resources. Often the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers are restricted, as is the use of irradiation, industrial solvents or synthetic additives.

As pioneers in organic coffee, we were the first to bring Organic Certified Ethiopian coffee to the market. We use American, European & Japanese organic standards for several different coffees. Each partner in the supply chain needs to be certified for the certification to be valid and is regularly audited to verify the validity of the certification. Also random tests are done on batches in the laboratory to test for pesticide residues.

For example, the European Union certificate shows that the product meets the demand of the EU’s regulations. Every product produced in the EU that is sold as organic, is legally required to have the EU logo and certificate.
