Oh, it’s a sad fact for us coffee lovers, but this bean is one of the most intensively sprayed crops around. Why? Normally, coffee is grows on bushes naturally in the shade, but to increase production, most large coffee makers cut down huge swaths of rainforest (hello, Nestle!) and douse the beans with chemicals to grow coffee more quickly.But don’t worry–there are plenty of ways to get a healthy cup of morning sunshine–organic coffee is becoming more mainstream as the public demands food staples with fewer chemicals. Just be aware that FairTrade does NOT mean the brand is organic–it refers only to the price farmers are paid for their work.
If you can’t find organic, certified shade-grown coffee is the next best thing–coffee grown in more natural circumstances is less likely to be heavily sprayed, and ensures your beans are not destroying rainforests.

As one would expect, we are asked a multitude of questions pertaining to coffee
“What does this coffee taste like?” “How should this coffee be ground?” “What’s does organic and fair trade mean?”, etc.
However, the questions we are asked the most are about the names of the various coffee blends. Naming the blends has been one of the most fun parts of this business, aside from actually drinking them. :)
So here you go, a complete rundown of each of our “iconic” blends -
