Organic Coffee

Giving Organic Coffee produced free of artificial chemical substances, such as certain additives or some pesticides and herbicides.

Many factors are taken into consideration when Giving Coffee is purchased. For example,
- the coffee farm's fertilizer must be 100% organic such as chicken manure, coffee pulp, and general compost.
- The roasting and packing facility must be certified to handle organic products, and the personnel must be trained to work with organic coffee.

In the US, organic coffee crops are overseen by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
