Our Certifications, Memberships & Award.

USDA Organic Certified

We are certified by Ecocert, ICO LLC (70 E. Main St. Suite B, Greenwood, In 46143. As a part of our certification we track all organic coffee from farm to sale – all verified by an annual audit.  For any one of our coffees to be called “organic”, our suppliers have to be certified organic as well, so we carry certificates from every one of our green bean suppliers.
