For most Americans, every morning starts with a cup of coffee. And while the trends in coffee change all the time, there’s a new buzzword you’re about to start hearing more.
Biodynamic coffee is now a thing, and if you’re a coffee drinker, you’ll want to know about it. The concept of biodynamic farming, which is more than a decade old, started with food and has now made its way into how coffee beans are grown and cultivated. Different from organically grown coffee, biodynamic coffee is more sustainable and regenerative.

“The reason why biodynamic farming is so crucial right now is that it creates life in the soil more than organic methods by focusing on the microbial health of the soil and land than what is being grown,” says Zen Nishimura, founder of Zen Bunni biodynamic foods. “The soil of biodynamic farming methods is considered the ‘blood’ of the farm and everything planted and harvested naturally benefits from that level of attention to the soil. So not only is your health benefiting, but the planet is, too.”
One of the first to offer biodynamic coffee stateside, Zen Bunni’s medium roast coffee, which boasts notes of citrus, still contains the same amount of caffeine as other varieties, but with the added benefit of minerals, vitamins and nutrients.
