No Compromise Coffee 

By carefully considering everything we do – from selecting the highest quality coffee, grown using regenerative farming practices, to our 100% compostable packaging and meticulously developed roast profiles – our roast-to-order Biodynamic Coffee is the cleanest & tastiest coffee you can buy.

Healthy Soil 

Biodynamic farming works, in part, by improving the soil’s natural fertility. By supporting the soil’s microbiology, the beneficial organisms provide the coffee plants all the nutrients they need, when they need them.

But, did you know that we are hard-wired in our DNA to assess nutritional value through flavor?  The compounds that correlate with flavor also correlate with nutritional value.  That’s why coffee that has been grown in healthy soil tastes so great!

Fairtrade+

We believe that fair trade is best captured through one-on-one relationships based on respect and mutual support.

We develop our relationships with producers through origin visits and in solidarity with women entrepreneurs, family-run farms and cooperatives.

We also pay coffee producers a price that allows farmers to invest in and protect the ecology & biodiversity of their land, and so that they can focus on producing the very best coffees in the world.

Transparency  

In a world where it’s difficult to know what is real and whom you can trust, we believe it’s important to be fully transparent. One way we do this is through traceability.

On every box of coffee we sell there is a QR code that links to the story of the people that produce the coffee.

We also work with Food Microbiological Laboratories Inc. in California to test our coffee for contaminants such as mold (ochratoxin), heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic) as well as other biological contaminants. When combined with the regenerative, Biodynamic farming practices that our farmers use, it underscores our commitment to providing you with the cleanest and tastiest coffee available on the market.

Beyond Organic

Our Biodynamic Coffee is grown without the use of herbicides, fungicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers. And, unlike organic farming, which makes exemptions for the use of certain broad-spectrum natural pesticides such as rotenone, ryania and sabadilla (which kill pollinators), there are no exemptions for their use in Biodynamic farming.

In addition, we’ve completed an end-to-end certification process with Demeter USA that covers the sourcing, shipping, warehousing and roasting of all the coffees we offer.

In fact, Green America has awarded Demeter Biodynamic certification 5 out of 5 stars – it’s the only “Environmental Concerns Label” that achieved this level of recognition. It confirms that the standards honestly reflect the best possible environmental, animal and human welfare practices.

With Holistic Roasters you can be confident that you are getting delicious, high-quality, no compromise coffee.

Forward Thinking

One of the aims of Biodynamic farming is to improve the natural environment by putting more into the land than we take out of it. In this way, Biodynamic agriculture goes beyond sustainability – it’s regenerative to the earth’s ecosystems and enhances its biodiversity. It’s a self-contained and self-sustaining approach to farming.

The vitality it generates helps protect coffee plants from the stresses of climate change and extreme weather.

In addition, Biodynamic farming helps to eliminate soil erosion and the run-off that pollutes our waterways. By allowing the soil to better absorb water it also replenishes underground aquifers.

Support for Local Communities

We believe it’s important to develop and partake in communities of shared interest.

As part of our long-term commitment to support children’s education, we work in cooperation with AWSNA to support Waldorf Schools on fundraising projects and events to help educate a generation of ethical leaders with strong civic competencies who can wisely guide society to a better future for all.
