The production of most coffee is really bad for the environment… with monocropping, deforestation and heavy chemical use.
Farmers and businesses trying to keep up with the increasing demand for coffee have adopted destructive practices that can be harmful to the soil and environment. Instead of completely cutting coffee out, we can make more conscious choices as consumers.
We recently found Zenbunni, who source from fair-trade, regenerative and certified biodynamic farms.
Biodynamic farming is a regenerative approach to agriculture that emphasizes self-sustainability – the Biodynamic standard does not allow for any added hormones, avoids synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and prohibits GMOs. While improving soil health!
The result is a healthy, nutrient-dense great tasting coffee.
Coffee grown in healthy soil with biology that is able to tap into a diverse range of nutrients present in the soil = you consume more nutrients.
Zenbunni has plant-based packaging (instead of plastic), and roast with the goal of retaining antioxidants that are often diminished in traditional roasts. They only do small batch micro roasts each day, which…
– retains antioxidants that are often diminished in traditional roasts
– ensures freshness
– products mycotoxin mold-free coffee
Their product tastes amazing and is improving soil health!
