Fauxganic? Don’t Fall For It.

Make sure your getting the real-real. No seal, no deal. Beyond the amazing quality of organically grown crops, one of the reasons organics are higher value/higher cost is that certified organic products represent an unbroken chain of inspections and certifications all the way back to the land it was grown on. If one of these links is broken, it cannot get the USDA Seal by law.

Things that can cause a product to not reach the high bar that certification sets are too numerous to list here. From the land the coffee is grown on, cultivation, processing, transport, distribution, exporting/importing(more fumigation risks), distribution, storage, roasting, packaging. Each step is inspected/certified.

In the coffee industry, many burlap bags say Organic because when they put it in the bag, it was! Flooded warehouses, fumigation, chemical exposure, cross contamination on shared equipment (think producing synthetic flavored coffees and then roasting pure organics) are just some of the reasons a product would be denied certification.

Unscrupulous sellers like to market products as organic and charge more for them but instead of paying 3rd party inspectors, agencies, and growers with the additional funds for the additional labor it takes to grow organic products…they pocket it.

You will find the USDA Organic seal on every bag of coffee we produce. Certified Organic since day 1, we make sure your getting the real thing. When in doubt about a product ask; who does your certification? If it’s legitimate the product will list who the certifying agency is on the packaging like the accompanying picture of the back of our bag and will readily provide a link to their database like ours here. You can also find a link on our website under the Our Work tab. We are proud to be certified by NOFA-NY and have been working with them since before we opened our doors.

Help protect the integrity of Organic Certifications by spreading the word and tag a friend, #nosealnodeal and say no to #fauxganic

4 Benefits of French Press Coffee Service

1. Sensory Impact

It’s difficult not to be impressed by well executed French press coffee service. The visual is stunning, the aromas are pronounced, the flavor is rich and the tactile is intimate.

2. Value Creation/Satisfaction

Value is created because all of the above happen before it’s even tasted. It’s presented as something special because it is.

3. Redundancy

The fact that you only need press pots, properly ground coffee and hot water removes a lot of potential problems with traditional coffee service. If your hot water supply goes down, hot water can easily be found in the kitchen with a kettle or pot until your equipment is back online.

4. Portion Control

I am preparing a separate article on setting up a French press station for food service. For now just know that because this type of coffee service is scaled and brewed to order, waste can be greatly reduced.

We are licensed distributors for the full line of Bodum French Presses and accessories. If you would like to talk about the benefits of beginning this style of coffee service in your business send me a message today!

I hope this helps you,

Daniel
