Why I made the switch to Organic Coffee!

One thing we know for sure is, we love our coffee! It’s delicious and it can be addictive! So we are not going to stop drinking it (and there is no reason why to really). However, the one area where most experts seem to be arriving at a common ground is the consensus that we should be eating as many organic foods as possible! And Coffee should not be the exception!

Metallic Coffee?

One Survey of Chemical Contaminants and Residues in over hundred different types of coffee tested positive traces of Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Lead, Manganese, Nickel, Tin, Zinc, Acrylamide among other things that should definitely not be in coffee! Many of these depend not just on your coffee and farming techniques, but the soil, the water and what types of pesticides and fertilizers are being used. 

Adulterated Coffee?

Also unsettling are the amounts of researchers that have reported lesser quality and cheap fillers found in popular and commercial brands of coffee. These are commonly used to cut high grade quality coffee in order to increase yield and reduce costs. Among the commonly found ingredients in ground coffee are corn, wheat, barely, soybeans, rye, seeds and sometimes… just plain dirt.

A true and healthy cup of coffee should be just that! Brewed coffee beans and whatever your choice of milk and sweetener YOU DECIDE to add. Drinking organic coffee is not only healthier to you, it is also healthier to the economy and the environment as it is usually raised in independent family owned farms with very few industrial processing and chemicals that you should be avoiding anyways. Farmers who produce organic coffee sold in compliance with the Fair Trade standards and/or Organic seal are usually treated and paid better. Their farms are under constant audit and use the least environmentally invasive techniques in order to preserve the flora and fauna around their crops.
