Description and Taste
This 100% organic, medium roast, blended, coarse-ground Arabica coffee represents an authentic taste that will do well as filter coffee. A large selection of different beans gives this coffee its own unique flavour.
The coffee is medium-brown in colour with more body than light roasts. Like the lighter roasts, this coffee has no oil on the bean surfaces. However, being a medium-roast it lacks the grainy taste of a light roasts, and exhibits a more balanced flavour, aroma, and acidity. Caffeine is somewhat decreased, but there is more caffeine than in a darker roast.
Organic Coffee is Tastier Than Chemically Grown Coffee
Organic coffee tastes better than coffee grown with chemical fertilisers and toxic pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides because the chemicals cause so much damage to the microbial life of the soil. Delicious coffee beans come from planting organic coffee trees in soil, which is rich in compost and natural fertilizers. Chemical-free soils ensure that you taste nothing but pure coffee, and people generally notice a distinct quality difference in taste in organic coffee compared to chemically grown coffee.
Organic coffee also tastes better than coffee grown with chemical fertilisers and toxic pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides because of the growing methods farmers use. Factors that weigh heavily with improved taste include shade-grown and organic farming methods, which improve the fertility and microbial life of the soil, clean the water absorbed by the roots of the coffee trees, and provide a habitat for birds that provide pest control.
In addition, the taste of organic coffee receives a boost, if it is grown high up in the hills. Organic coffee trees grown under shade trees on hills produce fewer coffee cherries than chemically grown coffee trees grown under the sun lower down, and this improves the taste. Moreover, the organic shade tree-grown coffee cherries grow slower, which results in a smoother taste and a more enjoyable flavour.
Another reason why organic coffee tastes better is because of the higher price producers receive for the coffee. As a result of this premium, the producers are more inclined to look after their soil and coffee trees, and harvest the beans more carefully.
Organic coffee producers place a higher emphasis on harvesting, which is usually done by hand in order to ensure that only the best, red coffee cherries are processed. This is a must, considering that coffee trees have cherries going through different development cycles.
All in all, because of the more intricate care applied when growing organic coffee, the taste is so much more pleasant.
Origin of the Coffee
This Arabica coffee comes from the mountainous region of North Thailand. It is produced 100% organically without any chemicals, and this gives it a rich flavour. Each and every single bean comes from one organic coffee farm located in Chiang Dao, Chiang Mai, Thailand occupying more than 50 acres. The altitude ranges from 1,000 to 1,200 metres above mean sea level.
The coffee farm and the village are among mountains, one of which is called “Doi Luang”, the third highest mountain in Thailand. The village and its surrounded area are parts of Mae Ta Man upstream forests, which have fertile soil and clean mountain water, which provide the conditions and nutrients needed for the coffee trees to grow without the use of any chemical fertilisers or chemicals. Furthermore, the rain forest nearby the coffee farm provides a habitat for birds and immense biodiversity, which together enhance the health of the soil and the coffee trees, and also the quality of the coffee.

The Benefits of Drinking 100% Organic Coffee
100% organic coffee costs more than chemically grown coffee, such as Nescafe. Aside from the improved taste, 100% organic coffee is so much healthier for you. Conventional coffee is among the most heavily, chemically treated foods in the world. It is sprayed abundantly with pesticides, fungicides, and insecticides while the soil is treated with herbicides. Endosulphan, which is a dangerous chemical, is still commonly sprayed on conventional coffee plantations. In contrast, organic coffee is grown with only organic fertilizers, such as manure and compost, together with perhaps an organic foliar spray supplying nutrients.
Organic coffee is full of antioxidants that help to keep the body strong, improve the immune system, and increase energy levels without having to experience a drop in energy once the afternoon comes around. Because this 100% organic coffee is not produced using pesticides and chemicals, you can expect every sip to taste significantly better than its conventional counterpart. Whether you enjoy drinking your coffee black or with some milk and sugar, choosing organic is sure to eliminate any strange aftertastes or flavour inconsistencies. Certified Organic coffee is one of the top world’s quality coffees.
