With the growing demand for organic coffee, the number of Organic Coffee Roasters is increasing steadily. They are the people who roast organic coffee to your taste, organically. Yes! You get organic coffee only when the coffee is grown organically and it is roasted organically. It may seem that roasting is as simple as heating on fire, but it is not so. Rather, it is about bringing out the right desired taste, flavour and texture out of the green coffee beans. Green coffee beans, when brewed and consumed as coffee, do not at all taste or smell as the coffee we know about. The term roasting is a combination of processes like sorting, roasting, cooling, stabilizing and sometimes, packaging. But then, is organic coffee roasting anything different from that? What do the Organic Coffee Roasters do? Let us take a look.
Whether or not you will get your morning cup of Organic Coffee depends much on the suppliers. They are those who actually make it possible. Have you ever wondered who these suppliers are?

Have a look then!
In today’s scenario where we are left with no choice but to make compromises with the food products which are laden with harmful chemicals that come from the chemical fertilizers, pesticides and other reagents used in their production and processing; Organic Coffee comes as a whiff of fresh, soothing, fragrant air. Although it does not seem to make any big difference when everything else available in the market is not even close to natural or organic; but this organic movement, of which this Organic Coffee is a small part, will make a big difference someday. Further, we do not have to compromise at least in case of our favourite drink and we can relax while sipping into our cup of Organic Coffee that at least here, we are not sipping in anything toxic. There is much to write about Organic Coffee and at the same time, it can be summarized in a few sentences. But, let me give you a detailed idea of what exactly can be called Organic Coffee.
There is something which keeps pricking every coffee lover around the world, and that is the presence of caffeine in it. Then, like all other crops, there might be toxic chemicals creeping into it from the artificial fertilizers and pesticides used. This keeps them from enjoying their cup to its full since they know very well that both caffeine and the chemical residues in coffee are harmful for health. But can we imagine coffee without caffeine and that too without fertilizers or pesticides used on it? Yes! We can. There is a coffee called Organic Decaf Coffee which comes with solutions to all your problems. It neither contains caffeine nor those toxic chemical residues discussed above. But how did such a coffee come into being? What exactly it is? Where is it available? There are several questions whose answers have to be found out. Let’s do it then!
Espresso Coffee is the most popular form of coffee consumed around the world. How nice it would have been if this popular coffee could be made healthier too? Yes! It can be!

Before I tell you what Organic Fair Trade Coffee is and why it is important, I want you to answer some of my questions from your heart. Have you ever thought what happens to the major portion of the money you spend on anything you buy? You might have. Does it reach the hands who actually toiled under scorching sun in open fields to feed you; who worked days and nights on the looms to weave that fine cloth you are wearing; who forged themselves on machines to turn out that masterpiece in metal? Perhaps not! Not in most cases. The same thing happens when you enjoy your most favourite coffee after making a handsome payment at the retail outlet. Only a negligible portion of your money reaches those poor, underfed farmers living below poverty line in developing countries of Africa, Latin America and Asia who actually gave their best to produce the best for you and who actually deserve to be paid the best. Does this fact hurt you? Do you want to help those farmers through your coffee as well as keep the environment clean? If it is, then it is high time you switch over to Organic Fair Trade Coffee. Only Organic Fair Trade can ensure that farmers/artisans/workers get what they actually deserve. So, what is Organic Fair Trade Coffee? I shall answer this question in two parts.
Coffee! And that too, green? And now if I start telling you about Organic Green Coffee all of a sudden, then it will be an overdose for those who have seen and tasted only the packed and powdered brown/black coffee (instant or otherwise) and can hardly believe that coffee can be green too.

But Green Coffee exists, and so does Organic Green Coffee and both have millions of fans. The next few paragraphs will be interesting to those who will be acquainted with this thing for the first time here. Here we go!
