Why should I choose Biodynamic Coffee?
1) Self Sufficient & Regenerative Farming
Biodynamic farming takes a holistic approach and considers the entire ecosystem including the interconnectedness of soil fertility and the health of plants, animals and people.
Approaching agriculture as a self-contained, balanced and holistic ecosystem has many benefits. Working with natural systems allows farmers to produce their own seeds, fertilizers and feeds. Eliminating the need for external agrochemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides allows farmers to take control of their farms and earn a better, healthier living.
2) Ecology of our Planet
Biodynamic farming methods go beyond sustainability. They are regenerative to the ecosystem’s natural fertility because they increase the amount of organic material in the soil and improve its microbiology.
This not only improves the soil’s ability to absorb moisture, it prevents soil erosion and the leaching of chemicals and fertilizers into waterways and the ocean.
3) Direct Trade
We source our coffee beans using direct trade exclusively from family-run estates and cooperatives that are certified Biodynamic by Demeter.
Our mission is not only to bring the best tasting, highest quality, clean coffee to market, it’s also about developing strong, mutually supportive relationships with the coffee growers.
4) A Better Cup of Coffee
Products that are certified biodynamic by Demeter are not only free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers, they are also free from the natural chemicals that are allowed in organic certifications that may, nevertheless, have a detrimental impact on human health.
With Biodynamic food, the health of the plants improves because they are being well-nourished from the soil. We believe that eating plants full of nutrition provides a benefit to human health and that the result when it comes to coffee is a better tasting cup!
Shopping & Payment Information
How to the Discounts Work, exactly?
There are 2 types of discounts and these can be combined. The first type is a volume-based discount. On cart quantities of 2 or more, free shipping applies. A cart quantity of 3 provides a 5% discount and a cart quantity of 4 provides a 10% discount. The second type is a subscription discount which provides an additional 10% discount.
For example, if you choose to subscribe to 1 Rubicon, 2 Rise & Shine and 1 French Roast every 5 weeks you will get free shipping + a 10% discount (for the cart quantity of 4) and then an additional 10% discount for the subscription. With this combination, you'll pay $16.16 each instead of $19.95 (19.95 - 1.995 = 17.955 - 1.7955 = 16.16).
