Creating the above list is so easy… it is so easy to locate genetically modified free coffee, I swear to gravy it is.
The tip is just to hunt for organic coffee.
By definition alone, organic cannot be genetically modified. These coffees are also grown without the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, making them not only GM Free, they are not even conventional. Conventional coffee, that is not genetically modified, still uses chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
Organic growers do not use these chemicals on your coffee.
Their creativity in resolution to the common challenges farmers face is amazing! Safe for you, safe for the environment, and safe for their workers as well.
Grab a cup of chemical free java and enjoy, guilt free, on so many levels!
