Editorial Reviews

Review

“I encourage you to indeed pour yourself a cup of Peace Coffee, sit down, and read Maria Elena Martinez-Torres’s Organic Coffee. It is a wonderful intellectual achievement that will improve your enjoyment of each cup fairly of traded and organically produced coffee.”

Fair Grounds


"Highly capitalized plantation groves are so degraded by erosion … that their productivity is plunging. Organic practices appear to be seriously improving the soil, lending support to the notion that the process of conversion to organic is a real investment in building natural capital for the future."

Organic Coffee

Format: Paperback
If you ever wondered if organic farming can really be as productive as chemical farming, or if it is really better for the environment, then read this book. The author manages to include a lot of scientific data and theory, yet keep everything readable and entertaining, and it will convince you. Beyond addressing the organic farming debate, the book tells the fascinating story of how coffee is grown, and of the indigenous people who grow it. This would be an excellent text for college courses, and also for graduate seminars.
