If you are someone who has to have their daily fix of coffee, you know that no matter how much of a bad rap coffee gets, you are not going to stop drinking it. And you shouldn’t! But what if your morning cup of Joe came with a side serving of health benefits? Now you’re listening!
Organic coffee is coffee that is grown using organic farming methods with no harmful chemicals or sprays, ensuring the coffee you drink is as natural as possible. This also means you get 100% of the flavour of the coffee beans and who doesn’t want a better tasting coffee right?
Rich In Antioxidants
Organic coffee is rich in antioxidants and we all know antioxidants are so very good for us. Instead of gulping down buckets of green tea to counteract the effects of coffee drinking, get your antioxidants in your coffee simply by switching to an organic version.
Natural Energy Boost
With no chemicals and additives, organic coffee is your natural source of caffeine, giving you the best natural energy boost around.
Pregnant women are usually advised against drinking coffee. Most regular coffees have a host of pesticides and herbicides and for a pregnant woman who drinks coffee, she runs the risk of passing on these ingested chemicals to the foetus. Needless to say, this is terrible. Organic coffee, free of its pesticides, is less of a health risk for a pregnant woman and her baby.
Organic coffee, grown in the shade of larger trees has a much superior taste and at the same it does not contribute to deforestation of the surrounding areas, thus ensuring local flora and fauna are unaffected by its growth. This in the long term also prevents soil erosion.
Buying Organic Coffee Beans
If you are considering organic coffee, be sure not to fall for a “fake”. Be sure to look at the label carefully and only buy organic coffee beans that carry an appropriate certification. For coffee to be truly organic:
- The soil it is grown in must be fertiliser free. Organic coffee farmers use compost and manure.
- The coffee plant should not be sprayed with any artificial substances such as pesticides or chemical sprays.
- No artificial processes must be used in the growing of the coffee.
- Make sure it is shade grown coffee.
So, if you’re a regular caffeine addict, consider switching to an organic variety. It’ll do the environment good and it will definitely do you good too.
