Great coffee comes from healthy soil ™
what people are saying
Hands down THE best coffee I have ever had. It’s so good hot or cold. It’s crisp and light. It’s also really nice because it does not give me jitters or make me feel weird or crash. I will definitely be purchasing this one again!
Great clean taste. Very smooth and I agree with the other reviewer on the “chocolate covered pretzel” taste. Best part for me though is the clean, mentally focused energy you get from only high quality coffee like this…. also love that they roast to order so you always know you’re getting a freshly roasted bag of beans when you order from their website
This is our favorite coffee ever! My husband makes the most amazing lattes – we are very picky then we came across a different biodynamic coffee which eventually led us to this one…and WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
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 Biodynamic Coffees are the cleanest & tastiest coffee you can buy.
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!
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.
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.
And we don't stop there. At the roasting facility in Berkeley, the single burner convection coffee roasters incinerate the smoke without requiring external afterburners. That means there is less fuel used and less impact impact on the environment.
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.
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 planet.
