To us, organic is more than just a popular commodity, it is a commitment to a philosophy about respect for the earth, the farmer, our co-workers and the consumer. Most people who roast organics also roast conventional coffees in the same machines, using the same equipment indiscriminately. We believe that the integrity of the organic process requires a greater commitment on our part. We have gone the next step to be certified as an organic processor by Bay State Organic Certifiers, one of the leading international organic certifying agencies. Processor certification requires us to document and keep a complete audit trail from the farm to the customer, insuring that only certified organic ingredients are used, the beans are segregated from non-certified ingredients or equipment, and that sanitation and cleanliness are paramount. In this way we can guarantee to you that the growing, harvesting, processing, shipping, storage, roasting and packaging of every batch we produce maintains the integrity of the organic process.
