Biene vor Lupinen

The bee loves lupine

Loffee is not only good for us, bees also love the colorful flowers!

Organic lupins - good for animals and nature

Lupins are a real eye-catcher with their magnificent flowers. Whether white, yellow, blue or pink, the long flowers stand out in any garden and are a real ornamental. But even more important than their visual appeal is what's inside the flowers: lupins are particularly rich in nectar and are therefore a hotspot for bumblebees and bees.

Organic lupins as an alternative to fertilizer-heavy agriculture

Bee populations have been declining dramatically for years. This is partly due to modern agriculture, which is claiming ever larger areas for itself and turning wildflower meadows into industrial agricultural land. This drastically reduces the natural habitat of bees and bumblebees. In addition, pesticides are often used, making the artificially created fields uninhabitable for insects. 

However, agriculture should not be condemned across the board. This is where we grow what we consume every day and need to live. A way must be found to reconcile the interests of farmers, consumers and nature. A good start would be an agriculture that does not use pesticides, cultivates its produce organically and also cultivates plants that bees and bumblebees can use for themselves. For example, organic lupins. These beautiful plants are ideal nectar carriers and also offer consumers a valuable commodity. 

Seeds are turned into delicious Loffee

The bees are now responsible for fertilizing the plants and producing seeds. These seeds are harvested by the farmer in late summer, cleaned and made available to us. We gently roast the bean-like seeds in our drum roasters and use them to produce delicious BIO Loffee. How exactly we manage to turn simple seeds into Loffee from simple seeds in this article.
