About Prestige Organic Coffee Arabica Rainforest Blend
Prestige Organic Coffee is a certified organic coffee roastery and was founded in 2001 when the Biological Farmers of Australia granted us certification.
Roaster Elizabeth Lajos is very experienced the art of speciality coffee roasting, joining Arabica Coffee in 1988. Both Arabica and Prestige are now combined in the same building; however, they are using different roasters, as Prestige is audited annually by the BFA.
We roast a huge range of coffees that are sold into organic retail stores, as well as dedicated organic cafés.
Prestige Organic Coffee is also Fair-trade Accredited, as the policy within our business is that everyone from the farmers to the customers must benefit.
Organic Coffee growing is a very stringent process. Prior to certification a coffee grower must prove there is no use of synthesized fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fumigation. Only organically naturally produced fertilizers may be used. The farmer must also operate a balanced ecosystem which provide a favourable environment for birds and animals. Before certification a plantation is soil tested for any traces of chemicals and must follow the standard set by the certifying organisation for six months before it can be considered.
After certification each plantation is visited and re-evaluated annually.
