Rock n Java is committed to bringing you ONLY Certified Organic coffee. This means our coffee beans are grown without the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers that not only pose threats to the crops and the land they’re grown on, but also to the farmers who grow them. An independent, third-party certifying program determines the certification and distinguishes those products that are grown organically from those that are “enhanced” by chemicals.
Instead of using chemicals, organic coffee growers use compost fertilizers made from the mulch of coffee cherries, cattle manure, and inter-planted crops such as fruit and cocoa trees, which produces healthy, natural topsoil. A healthy growing environment ensures a healthy crop, which translates into a tastier cup of coffee.
Organic growers use traps, rival insect species, birds, and literally preen each tree by hand, in order to eliminate pests. It can be labor-intensive, but the rewards are invaluable.
We buy ONLY Certified Organic coffee because it is the right thing to do, because we believe in environmental sustainability, and because we know organically grown coffee not only tastes better, it also helps improve lives.
