Drinking coffee is already an important part of our lives and most of us simply can’t have just one cup per day. And today we’re here to help you make those moments even more special by sharing the best organic coffee for you to drink in 2020: fair trade, excellent taste and complete health benefits coming from these organically-grown coffee beans.
There are so many delicious flavors and high quality coffee brands that we can never complain, but even if you already have a favorite, you still owe it to yourself to try new things and hopefully get an even better coffee to start your days with, to keep you awake and to delight your senses.
Organic coffee is extremely popular as it is grown in safe environments and considered healthier than regular coffee. Plus, for some reason, I always found organic coffee to have a better flavor – it’s richer, tastier, stronger. It’s simply better!
We have selected for you below the best of the best: the best organic coffee you can enjoy in 2020 – including an entry of what we consider the best decaf coffee for those who have to or want to reduce their caffeine intake. If you want even more options, we have a separate list of the best decaf organic coffee here.
(Note: This article was initially written in 2016, but we’re constantly updating it in order to continue offering you the best options in terms of best tasting organic coffee. Latest edit was in December 2019)
So let’s not waste any time and let’s delight our senses with the best organic coffee recommendations below!

1. Green Mountain Coffee: Sumatran Reserve
It’s almost cliche to have Green Mountain Coffee on a “Best coffee” list, but the truth is that we’re dealing here with an amazingly delicious coffee with an unique flavor.
This is the only coffee on our list that comes in K-cups form for those who are in a big hurry – or just fans of the Keurig machines. While I prefer to go the traditional way when it comes to making coffee, I can understand those who don’t. And they have an amazing option here.
This is a coffee with great character coming from Sumatra, an island in Indonesia and the sixth largest in the world. This organic coffee grown there is offering a sweet palate of brown sugar and spice notes: deeply roasted to perfection, this coffee is extremely strong and packs quite a punch in the morning. You’ll love it!
2. The Organic Coffee Co – Breakfast Blend
Coming from South and Central America (mostly from Panama), the Breakfast Blend is my favorite of them all. I drink a lot of coffee each day and for that reason I prefer something that’s not strong enough to power a factory, but enough to keep me running at optimal speeds.
And that’s exactly what you get from this medium roast blend: it has a great taste and it’s very smooth. I can only describe it as delicious to perfection.
It’s lighter than the very dark roasted coffees, so those preferring the strong, bitter taste, might not put it high on their list. But it’s delicious, it has a great flavor and I personally consider it perfect for my early morning coffee and all the way to the evening when I usually have my last cup of the day.
The good news is that there’s also a K-Cup compatible version, so I will link to that as well in case you prefer it.
If you want the K-Cup pods, you can get them here.
3. Death Wish Ground Coffee
It’s time to switch from our previous lighter coffee to what’s described by its makers as “the world’s strongest coffee” and they might be just right about it!
Having double the caffeine of your average coffee, this coffee is smartly packed and has a great name – but it’s not all just marketing. We’re really talking here about a coffee that packs a massive punch: dark, rich, bold and extremely flavorful, this coffee is definitely for those who want a super-strong coffee to start their day with.
As a result, it’s a bit more bitter than what I’m used with because of the coffee they use to make it so strong, but if you like the bitter taste, it’s not only delicious, but wakes you up like the loudest alarm during a silent night. Definitely a brand that you have to try at least once (which also comes in K-Cup form).
Have in mind that this is one of the best selling ground coffees on Amazon at the moment of writing this article – and that many people can’t be wrong!
If you prefer the K-Cups, you can get them here.
4. Kicking Horse Coffee – Three Sisters
This is a new entry on our list: a charming, surprising coffee that I tried recently and fell in love with irrevocably.
This is a medium roasted coffee and it is absolutely fantastic: smooth and savory, with a strong taste and offering a solid kick of caffeine. It is presented as a medium roast, but I would consider it a medium-dark roast actually, which means that it works really well for those who prefer a darker, stronger coffee.
This one is not as popular as others on our list, but it doesn’t mean that it is bad coffee, on the contrary! I personally think that you should give it a try as it is absolutely delightful!
5. Best Decaf Organic Coffee: Jeremiah’s Pick
If you prefer decaffeinated coffee instead (or you just want to mix and match them to keep your caffeine intake low), I have a real treat for you: this decaf coffee is decaffeinated by a chemical-free Swiss Water process, making sure that you not only get the best possible taste, but also the healthiest option out there when it comes to decaffeinated coffee.
I only recently learned that the decaffeinating process can be a chemical soaking that makes this otherwise healthy beverage into a chemical-packed drink, but the water processing is the safest option out there, followed closely by the carbon dioxide method.
But enough chemistry! Let’s talk coffee – and in particular Jeremiah’s Pick Decaf Organic.
It tastes wonderful, a mixture of caramel and dark chocolate with bittersweet intensity – not too bitter, but not too light either. A great choice and many people I know to whom I recommended this decaf coffee have switched entirely to drinking it (and loving it!) as you can’t really tell that it’s not fully caffeinated – that’s how flavorful it is!
So there you have them – four delicious and amazing organic coffee brands to try out in 2020, plus what I consider the best decaf organic coffee out there. Enjoy!
