We all love that first coffee of the day.
But what’s really inside your morning brew?

As the second most traded commodity in the world after crude oil, the journey your coffee takes from bean to cup matters more than ever. At Apostle Coffee, we believe in coffee with conscience and are committed to organic, sustainable methods for producing the perfect roast.

Read on to find out why organic coffee is the best choice for mind, body, and planet.

#1 Organic Coffee Certification

Organic coffee can only be labelled as such if it is certified by a regulatory body and although some coffee roasters claim to be organic, they must carry an organic certificate to do so legally – be sure to look for a recognised accreditor logo. Every Apostle Coffee bean is certified organic by the UK Soil Association, providing peace of mind with every sip. At Apostle Coffee, our ethically-sourced organic coffee beans also come in plastic-free, 100% compostable packaging.

#2 Environmentally Friendly Coffee

Large-scale deforestation damages ecosystems and releases huge amounts of carbon into the atmosphere from the decomposition of plant matter. By contrast, the organic coffee sourced by Apostle is from farms that are organic, small-scale, ethical, and family-run. Another key point is the incorporation of diverse farming practices on organic farms, where the coffee beans are grown alongside other crops to minimise their environmental impact and create a bio-diverse farm area.

#3 Chemical Free Coffee 

Organic coffee avoids using synthetic fertilisers or pesticides which can damage ecosystems for example by entering the water cycle or impacting on local insect species. As a result chemical-free coffee is not only better for the environment, it’s better for the coffee producers and for you! Why not give our Organic Mountain Water Decaf a go? Made from organic coffee beans and decaffeinated using an entirely natural extraction method.

#4 Coffee that’s Good for You

Organic coffee is a healthy choice. Because the coffee beans are grown in natural soil, without chemical interference or high-yield intensive production methods, it is especially high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Check out One Medical’s list of reasons to drink coffee here

#5 Fair Prices for Coffee Farmers

The organic coffee we source at Apostle Coffee guarantees a fair price to the farmers and as a result we pay Fairtrade coffee market rates, and in many cases even more. Because our producers are committed to organic, bio-diverse farming we think it’s really important to support them, rather than sourcing cheaper, chemically grown coffee that you get with other coffee roasters.


So, there you have it. Organic coffee doesn’t just taste better it also makes the world a better place. To find out how we produce our award-winning organic coffee, why not explore our subscription range and give Apostle’s organic coffee subscription a go today!
