The 10 Best Organic Coffee Brands of 2020

With 64 percent of Americans committed to their morning coffee, 79 percent of java-lovers prefer making it from home. I personally love Presto Coffee Bags in the AM as they are perfect for on-the-go coffee ,overs like myself. Furthermore, today’s consumers are opting for organic certified coffee over non-organic.

However, not all organic coffees on the market deserve your time.

For a coffee brand to truly hit it out of the park, their beans need to be organic and high quality. When freshly ground, they should create the perfect blend of flavors that you love.

To help you find the best organic coffee brands from the lineup, here are the 10 most recommended by coffee connoisseurs.

1. Kicking Horse Coffee

We all need a kick in the butt when we wake up in the morning. Your coffee needs to woo you with its charms and give you superpowers.

Kicking Horse Coffee checks all the boxes and then some.

It’s organic and fair trade certified. The flavors of the dark roast are smooth and balanced with slight nods to chocolate. Brewers sensitive to acidity in their coffee can easily enjoy this low-acidity bean.

You don’t have to search far to find the best cup of organic coffee. Kicking Horse is sold online. 

2. Death Wish Coffee

The average cup of coffee has 15-20 mg of caffeine per ounce. Death Wish Coffee packs 60 mg per ounce.

This coffee will have you up, out of bed, and bouncing off the walls by 7 AM.

Besides its immense energy boosting qualities, Death Wish Coffee is organic and USDA-certified. The dark roast is smooth, sultry, and slightly jolting.

Some reviewers recommend not drinking too many cups of this brew per day because of the caffeine content. However, if you’re working the late shift or are simply feeling sluggish, it’s the best cup of joe to reach for.

3. Ethical Bean Coffee

There are no qualms about this coffee brand’s morals. Ethical Bean Coffee is dedicated to sustainable, ethical coffee bean production without sacrificing taste.

They make a range of coffee brews from dark roast to sweet espresso beans. The espresso beans hint towards flavors of toffee, caramel, and baker’s chocolate. However, it’s not overpowering.

It’s also an affordable coffee brand compared to other organic beans on the market. You don’t have to break the bank to make more sustainable coffee choices.

4. Bizzy Cold Brew

When you’re slugging through a humid summer afternoon, nothing sounds better than a cold brew coffee.

Specifically, a Bizzy Cold Brew Coffee.

If you prefer your coffee black, this one is smooth and naturally sweet. For those still adding heaps of cream and sugar, you may find you need to add less to this chilly brew.

Pro tip: pour some Bizzy Cold Brew into an ice cube tray and let it freeze. Add some cubes to your cold brew for instant coldness without watering it down.

5. Jo Coffee

Jo Coffee is known for making many amazing bean blends. However, their most notable is the No Fun Joe Decaf.

Caffeine jolts aren’t fun when you start getting heart palpitations. Jo Coffee ensures you can still enjoy your favorite beverage without health concerns.

Their decaf beans are organic and use the Swiss water method. They have a rich, robust flavor with subtle hints of blueberry.

6. Subtle Earth Organic Coffee

The only subtle thing about these coffee beans is the acidity level. Subtle Earth Organic Coffee produces low-acidity whole beans that are also USDA-certified organic.

Despite being sold mainly online, reviewers rave about how consistent every cup is.

The flavors are intense, bold, and far from fruity. It tastes amazing in a drip machine, French press, and even when refrigerated to make cold brew.

7. Two Volcanoes Coffee

True coffee snobs (connoisseurs) care about the freshness of their beans. Two Volcanoes Coffee knows that. That’s why their beans come in vacuum sealed pouches with a degassing valve.

The 100% Guatemalan Espresso Blend is one of the notable crowd pleasers. It has a woodsy, earthy flavor profile, but still smooth and creamy.

If you prefer a bitter aftertaste, let it brew for a couple of extra minutes. This highly customizable bean can please every coffee lover.

8. The Bean Coffee Company

There’s nothing better than a brand that cares about the planet just as much as it cares about quality. The Bean Coffee Company places a high priority on keeping all steps of their process as eco-friendly as possible.

One interesting feature of their beans is that they’re grown in California.

If you’re looking for beans that haven’t traveled the world to get to you, try their Mocha Java blend. It’s sweet, creamy, and chocolatey.

9. Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix

You may be questioning why there’s a coffee made with mushrooms on this list. Could mushroom coffee really be that good?

Yes. Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix is that good.

In addition to the ground organic beans, organic mushroom powder is added to the mixture. This boosts your immune system and makes the coffee less harsh on weak stomachs. It’s a little lighter on the caffeine but strong on traditional coffee flavor.

10. Equal Exchange Fairly Traded Coffee

If there was ever a coffee brand that seemed too good to be true, Equal Exchange is it. This company is owned by the workers as a co-op.

Small farmers grow the beans where they get collected at co-ops and roasted by Equal Exchange. Every step of their process is eco-friendly and ethical. They’ve been successfully selling these organic beans for over 30 years!

Their medium blend is a consistent crowd pleaser. It’s balanced, smooth, and robust. Anyone who dislikes bitterness and overcompensating flavor will love this blend.
