Mycotoxins are caused by the growth of mould or fungus on coffee cherries.
We have a very stringent process when it comes to testing for mould. When we begin a relationship with a farmer, we require them to send an initial small batch of coffee so that we can sample roast and cup the coffee to test for any defects. The growth of any fungus would show up during the cupping process in the form of flavour defects. Any sign of a defect like this (or anything else) would be picked up by our quality control team, who’d eliminate the coffee from our purchase process.
We do this for every coffee we consider buying, so if you’re a lover of Bulletproof coffee, our beans are fine to use!
