It all began with a vision like dream of a bunch of happy people gathering together in a barn, which was filled with the glorious aroma of a freshly brewed organic coffee. A pleasant humdrum filled the place as delighted and delightful people chatted the hours away with the important people in their lives. In the background, great vibes were playing and sometimes even artists brought some live entertainment to thrill the crowd. Outside the horses were grazing and every now and then a whinny would fill the air and happy people would enjoy their coffees as they took in the atmosphere of the surrounds.
… and then there was …our budget. As our budget didn’t quite stretch far enough to buy the farm with the barn, we have made it our goal and mission to produce that same happiness through our humble van and pass that same feeling on to everyone who visits our van.
the joy of organic Beans
We believe in the environmental, social, and health benefits of organic coffee.
See why we are passionate about it
Reduce chemical runoff and residues in drinking water, waterways and coastal areas. Runoff is the main cause of diminishing marine life, animals and plants. Approximately 30 000 tonnes of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and plant growth regulators are used each year in Australia (OzProspect, 2003).
Organic food is produced using sustainable farm methods that imitate natural ecological processes (ACO).
Organic agriculture can strengthen the local environment’s resistance to disease
Organic coffee can promote forest preservation – especially if it is shade grown (which many organic coffee farms are)
Bird populations thrive in the natural coffee environment – keeping insect numbers low and naturally fertilising the soil
See why organic is better
Many food additives have been linked with symptoms such as allergic reactions, rashes, headaches, asthma, growth retardation and hyperactivity in children (Heaton, 2004).
Abnormal neurodevelopment in children can be caused or made worse by prenatal and early life exposures to pesticides and chemicals that contaminate our food (Guillette, et al., 1998).
Selecting organic foods also means you can avoid eating up to two kilograms of food additives each year, and
minimiseyour risk of exposure to pesticides in food.
