The Buzz Behind Organic Coffee Beans

By Paul Subscribe to RSS | May 8th 2012 | Views:

These days, more people are becoming aware of what goes in their bodies and their "carbon footprint" left behind because of their needs. Many consumers are finding themselves more interested in organic products that have been grown naturally without any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Organic products are gaining strong recognition in coffee shops. Organic coffee, for one, has exploded among coffee drinkers worldwide. Organic coffee is known for being a healthy alternative to inorganically grown coffee that shows awareness of environmental issues.

Coffee is one of the most profitable cash crops in current times, so it make sense that many farmers would want to protect their earnings by using strong pesticides and herbicides to detour pests and animals that prey on the coffee. Unfortunately, those same strong pesticides and herbicides used to rid insects and animals are a danger to our health and the health of our wildlife.

Although the U.S. and more modern countries have banned or regulated the use of some of the most dangerous pesticides, it's hard to regulate the use of them abroad in less-developed nations and many of these less-developed nations are responsible for most of the coffee imported today.

Some pesticides, for example chlorpyriphos used to protect coffee plants again coffee cherry borers and leaf miners have been deemed unsafe for household use in the U.S. since 2000 and have even been linked to human deaths. Most of these pesticides have a high toxicity rate for birds, insects, and other wildlife.

Similarly, one of most the common fertilizers used on coffee is made from petroleum-based chemicals which can leave soil barren and seep into the water supply causing. Certified organic coffee is produced through ninety-five percent natural means with special measures taken such as crop rotation plans to prevent soil from eroding and going desolate. The long term effects of such pesticides on humans are not known, but putting health at risk by consuming dangerous chemicals is a risk many have decided not to take.

Since coffee doesn't naturally grow in direct sun light (it grows in shade), it has been altered so that it can. It's estimated that approximately seventy percent of the world's supply of coffee has been compromised by the new mixture. Now many farmers are optimizing their profits by cutting down forests to make room for new coffee crops. By choosing organic coffee you are promoting the growth of shade-tree, the natural environment of coffee plants, which reduces the need for deforestation and adverse effects on wildlife.

As we can see, consuming inorganic coffee has a wide spectrum of disadvantages to our health and the environment. Sun-coffees which make up the majority of our coffee market promote deforestation and destroy treasured rainforests. By not indulging in the consumption of sun-coffees we are supporting more eco-friendly growing methods. Furthermore, dangerous pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides can harm our environment, our wildlife and ourselves, by consuming organic coffee you are taking a stand for sustainability and for your health.
