The Sydney Morning Herald: Coffee

Organic producers enhance biodiversity and support the environment in the way they farm, Forrest says. Buying organic Australian coffee also reduces your food miles.

I don’t know if Australian coffee has the right taste…but it certainly has the right approach in terms of biodiversity. The article here explains a lot about coffee and how it comes about and so you are in a better position to make an informed choice. That is another thing we are getting better at …informed choices. We want products which are fresh, which are not chemically enhanced and which do not ruin people’s lives or the environment. From that point of view Australian coffee is worth a try. If the taste isn’t up to it, we’ll soon be telling them! Instant coffee or plunger coffee are the most carbon friendly ways of making your cup of coffee….I didn’t know that. I don’t drink instant and am pleased my plunger was a good decision.
