If you want your food to be organic, it makes sense you’d want your coffee to be organic, too. Mass-produced coffee may have been exposed to a variety of chemicals while being grown, including pesticides and fertilizers. However, we’ve found coffee brands available on Amazon that sell USDA-certified organic coffee so you don’t have to worry about traces of unwanted chemicals in your cup of joe.
When it’s grown organically, coffee does less damage to the environment, so you can feel good about your purchase and enjoy the flavor of the organic beans.
Subtle Earth Organic
Why We Chose It. Subtle Earth Organic Coffee uses 100 percent Arabica beans from the Marcala region of Honduras. They are organically farmed, with no fertilizer or other chemicals. The beans are grown at a high altitude, which results in a dense flavor profile that includes notes of chocolate, honey, and cocoa. Choose beans roasted to your preference – light, medium-dark, or dark roast. You can use these beans in a traditional drip machine, French press, or espresso machine.
San Francisco Bay
Why We Chose It. Yes, you can get organic coffee in a pod. The San Francisco Bay Coffee line called OneCup features an organic Rainforest Blend that includes coffees grown in Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Indonesia. The pods will work with most brands of single-serve brewing machines, including many Keurig machines, as well as Bunn and Cuisinart. The pods themselves are commercially compostable, and the company is working on home-composting certification.
Why We Chose It. If you like your coffee strong enough to stand up by itself, you need to meet Death Wish coffee. The company blends Arabica and Robusta beans and uses a slow-roasting process to produce a coffee that’s twice as strong as what most beans deliver. And no, extra caffeine isn’t added during the process. The slow-roasting process results in a smooth coffee without a bitter taste. The coffee is available in whole beans or grounds for a drip machine.
Why We Chose It. The French roast organic beans are a top seller at Cameron’s Coffee. The company practices small-batch roasting to produce beans that bring you a smooth, flavorful cup. All beans for this blend are organically farmed with natural pest management techniques and natural fertilization. Even with its non-organic offerings, Cameron’s Coffee practices sustainability and uses techniques to limit the amount of water and energy it uses.
Real Good Coffee Company
Why We Chose It. When you name yourself Real Good Coffee Company, you have to produce a good product. Real Good’s organic dark roast coffee uses Arabica beans that are organically and sustainably grown in South America and roasted in Seattle. This dark roast has a bold flavor with hints of spice. It makes a great wake-up cup in the morning.
Why We Chose It. Café Cubano is Mayorga Organic’s signature blend. Company founder Martin Mayorga created this coffee based on his memories of growing up in the Cuban community in Miami as the child of immigrants. Cubans have a taste for dark and syrupy coffee, and this blend mimics that distinct flavor profile. This dark-roasted Arabica coffee will make a cup that’s bold, smooth, and sweet with hints of vanilla and smoky sweetness.
