We began Kalani Organica in the spring of the 1990s with a few bags of premium organic coffee and a dream of creating an ecologically sound alternative for discerning coffee drinkers. Sourcing the finest organic fairtrade 100% arabica coffee from around the world. Our interest was born of a desire to have a 100% organic products business that roast in small-batch fresh premium quality coffee and is entirely responsible from the coffee fields to your morning cup.
In addition to our organic coffees, we have a beautiful line of organic teas and herbs. So if one enjoys a high-quality cup of coffee or tea and values the contribution that organic agriculture makes to our future, this is the catalog for you.
Based on a century-old European model, our drum-style roasting machine utilizes banks of gas jets for supreme response and control. Our formula is a balance of time, temperature, airflow, and knowledge of how each variety of green coffee reacts during the roasting process. We continually extract samples to monitor progression. We watch for color change and wisps of smoke while simultaneously listening for unique pops and cracks indicating moisture loss and changes in flavor development. We roast in an artistic way to obtain an excellent finish for better caramelizing and sharpening the flavor components. This roast enhances each coffee's delicate nuances and varietal character without a " burnt " or " baked" quality.
Kalani Organica sustainably sources 100% certified organic & Fairtarid 100% Arabic coffee. These beans have been grown free of manufactured chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and commercial fertilizers. All coffees are grown by farmers/co-operatives using sustainable agroecological practices that mirror natural systems. Our Fairtrade certification coffee ensures farmers' and workers' rights, safer working conditions, and fairer pay. Fairtrade certification for our customers means high-quality, ethically produced products. We fully support this cyclical system.
