Have you ever been standing in the aisle trying to pick out a bag of coffee and been completely overwhelmed by all the different bags touting different certifications that make them "better" than the other? Us too. So, we pulled together information on the most popular coffee certifications and figured out what they meant. Some have implications for your health, like whether the coffee was grown using pesticides or not, and others focus more on the sustainability of the practices and lives of the farmers. All are worth taking into consideration, and knowing all the facts can help you prioritize which certifications are more important to you.

Next time you're standing there, no need to be confused. We've broken it down for what each label means in terms of your health and any other ethical factors the certifications take into consideration.
