Organic Kona Coffees are Chemical Fertilizer and Pesticide Free
Organic Kona coffee is grown without synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides, using sustainable agricultural methods. Working in harmony with nature, organic farming practices support the meticulous ecological balance maintained on our Kona coffee farms, and contribute to the extraordinary quality of our Kona coffee.
Many US states now regulate organic coffee, and the USDA plans to enforce additional regulation under the U.S. Organic Food Production Act. Organic Kona coffee must come from independently certified Kona farms, and roasted by certified Kona roasters to maintain the product’s integrity. At each step in the processing chain, audit trails track the coffee beans as they move from source to cup.
Organic Kona Coffee Fair Trade Brands
Certified Fair Trade Kona farmers are guaranteed a specific price per pound for organic coffee. Needless to say, current prices are putting farmers out of business and impoverishing coffee communities across Hawaii.
Fair Trade provides an alternative trade model that keeps small brands in business. The rules and membership of fair trade is managed by the non profit certification group, Transfair USA. Fair Trade rules stipulate healthy working conditions and a living wage for Kona farmers, among other criteria that aim to improve living conditions in Kona coffee producing communities.
Organic Kona Coffees Shade-grown Estates
“Shade-grown” Kona coffee is a method by which coffee is grown. It can apply to commercial or specialty Kona coffee, but is found more frequently in specialty Kona coffee production. Shade grown Kona coffee is grown under a canopy of Hawaiian shade trees, which provide habitat for birds and other species, enrich and conserve soil, and in many cases decrease the need for chemical inputs. Shade-grown Kona coffee estates thereby contribute to protection of natural habitats and tropical forest conservation in Hawaii where coffee estates produce.
