If you are an avid coffee drinker, you are going to want to read this!
It is Chemical Free
Did you know that of all the foods we consume on a regular basis, convention coffee is considered to be some of the most heavily treated with chemicals? Gross, right? Conventional coffee can’t be good for you because it is essentially steeped in a variety of synthetic fertilizers including fungicides, herbicides, insecticides and of course, pesticides. These types of chemicals not only help destroy the environment where coffee is grown but they can wreak havoc on your body.
In addition, many conventional coffee beans are washed before they reach the market. What are they washed with? Unfortunately, it can be a bath of chemicals including chlorine and ammonia. This is intended to wash away any chemicals used throughout the growing process, but often, there is residue left that the consumer will ultimately, consume. This chemical residue has been known to cause a variety of issues including skin irritation, hormonal imbalances, and abnormalities with the nervous system. It is a scary thought!
It is Nutritious
With organic coffee, everything is cleaner because no synthetic fertilizers are being used. Without the use of harsh chemicals, the coffee can retain its nutritional offerings, which includes being a solid source of antioxidants. In fact, according to a scientific study conducted by a chemistry professor at the University of Scranton, Americans receive more antioxidants from their daily coffee than from the foods they eat?
It Tastes Better
In addition to being better for your health, many coffee connoisseurs (including those at Muddy Waters Coffee Co.) say that it tastes better. Many people describe the coffee as having a richer, deeper flavor than conventional brands of coffee. It makes sense that organic coffee tastes better because most conventional brands of coffee are made with cheap, chemically treated coffee beans. The majority of organic coffee brands use quality beans like arabica beans, which offer a much better flavor.
It is Healthy
There are many benefits to drinking coffee so don’t diminish the value the coffee can bring to your health through drinking coffee with added chemicals. To get the most from your daily coffee fix, drink the good stuff. Coffee is known to improve mental clarity, heart health, weight loss efforts and longevity. Previous studies have also found that it can help prevent certain illnesses such as Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Depression and can help ward off certain types of cancer like colon and liver. Consuming a beverage chock full of chemicals is clearly going to negate these benefits so take advantage of the opportunities coffee has to offer and drink organic!
