The Original Organic Coffee. Coffee the Way Nature Intended.™. Hand Grown on Family Farms. House Blend. A Story As Old As The Land... When Coffee was discovered a thousand years ago it was a preciously guarded secret so valuable the beans were used as currency. In 1980 a group of coffee lovers in Ojai California heard of a family farm in the mountains of Mexico which grew coffee naturally the same way it had been when first found in the wilds. Setting off on an adventure the coffee lovers found a place where self-sustaining agriculture produced a smooth and aromatic coffee with no trace of bitterness. They came back and started Cafe Altura the original organic coffee so you can taste coffee the way nature intended. . Coffee the Way Nature Intended.™. Cafe Altura coffees are organically grown at altitudes above 3000 feet on small family owned farms from around the world. The coffee tree grows according to its natural cycle without the use of harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides. By employing companion planting compost and shade trees the farmers create a balanced healthy and self-sustaining growing environment that replenishes the topsoil and provides a winter home to many species of migratory birds. Cafe Altura buys from the same farms each year to insure the integrity and quality of the coffees. Special harvesting selects ripened cherries washed in rainwater sun dried hand sorted then air-roasted for a rich smooth taste.

Review 1 for Cafe Altura Organic Ground Coffee House Blend House Blend -- 12 oz
"I started buying organic coffee after reading about how coffee is the most heavily sprayed crop in the world! This is not the best tasting coffee I have ever tried, so I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5, but it is the best organic coffee I have tried so far. And it beats all the ordinary grocery store coffees in taste, too. No bitterness and no stomach pain like I get from some coffee."
