The best thing in the morning is to wake up and enjoy a cup of freshly brewed organic coffee. We are excited to introduce our new collection to you.
GEPA's mission is Fair Trade and for over 35 years, they have been going new ways as Fair Trade pioneers – serving the interests of their Southern partners. Additionally, they encourage producers to practice organic cultivation and pay them an organic differential for their efforts with the aim to enhance their living conditions and local communities.
Organic Coffee Varieties
Pure and aromatic is the flavor of the GEPA organic single origin coffees. The beans for the Arabica highland coffees are sourced from small farms in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua and other traditional coffee regions of the world. The soil and climate of each country gives each of the GEPA organic coffees a unique flavor.
The GEPA rare coffees are a particular highlight for discerning coffee lovers. The beans for these selected specialties come from high altitude coffee locations in the world, such as the highlands of Machu Picchu, Peru or Mount Elgon, Uganda were coffee is grown at an altitude of 1500 - 1750 meters. Shade grown, hand picked, sun-dried and naturally fair traded.
Benefits of Organic Coffee
The farmers grow the organic coffee bushes at high elevations in the shade of the trees. The shaded conditions and high altitude facilitate a slow growth of the coffee and the plants are able to grow denser and more complex. This eco-friendly, sustainable production results in better coffees and preserves the environment.
Consumption of organic coffee is better than drinking the regular one because it is completely free from traces of chemicals. Additionally, research indicates that organically grown products contain higher levels of antioxidants and nutrients and they have a better flavour as well.
