Coffee is an abundantly liked and enjoyed beverage in India and elsewhere also. Without questions as high is the demand, the pressure to meet the demand is equally high and thus better farming methods and chemical substitutes to boost growth and production are being researched on and used liberally. Here comes the challenge, either rely on coffee grown with help of pesticides, herbicides, artificial growth promoting chemicals etc. or just say bye to your favourite beverage. No, you have another option too!

Enjoy organically grown coffee!

Flashy research points about negating effects of toxic build up in the body and other related highlights have been major limelight trappers in recent past. And thus more and more people are opting for organic products. Organic simply means something grown in clean air, soil and water without use of any kind of chemicals. In this process, even fertilizers used are derived from natural sources and not chemical based or artificial. We know, understand and trust that pesticides and other chemicals used on edible and commercial plants have potential to get absorbed into our bodies and stay there long before causing harm. All said, when we opt for organically grown fruits and vegetable, apply the same rule for choice of your coffee and even tea leaves.

Here is a quick peek into what makes your coffee good or bad. Or what factors can, should or might influence your choice while going through produce aisle at a grocery store. We are restricting are discussion to our favourite beverage coffee today.

How can commercial coffee be bad?

Even when restricting to 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day, it can have pitfalls for its consumers. To have clear view, let’s understand that coffee plants grown with tonnes of chemicals sprayed on them retain these toxins even after packaging. Another key point variating organic and non-organic or commercial coffee is its processing and flavouring. Processing, preserving flavours, adding additional flavours and packaging coffee needs addition of chemicals like propylene glycol which makes it a little bad and harmful for its consumers. Thus, negate the beauty of this beverage. Organically grown coffee i.e. shade grown and grown without use of commercial chemicals is best because it retains less acid and caffeine as compared to commercially grown and processed non-organic coffee.

Certified and approved organic coffee producers ensure nourish their plantation with good nutrients including manure, compost etc. and allow coffee beans to grow at their natural sweet and slow pace. Thus, organic coffee (roasted not more than eight weeks previously) and certified for its organic nature by known authorities including USFDA can be trusted for its benefits like memory boost, avoiding onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and even helping with stress relieve and headaches to some extent.

Why to go for Organic coffee?

Natural slow growth and in-shade growing process without the use of any kind of chemicals, makes your coffee even taste better. The staleness factor in coffee is gone when we talk of organic coffee. This is because organically grown coffee beans are roasted just about eight weeks previous to packaging which helps retain the natural fresh flavour. This is in contrast to 3 to 12-month time for commercially grown coffee. Thus, enhancing the need of additives and chemical based flavour enhancers to hide the stale flavour!

Price wise as not much popular, organic coffee might cost you a little more than any other regular brand! But your health has a price even higher. Going organic gives, you benefit and rewards to last lifetime and this is the choice of many nutrition and health conscious inhabitants of the planet today.

Selecting what you mix to you morning cup or after meal hot cup or your kid’s favourite milk shake is entirely your choice. Sticking to organic brands comes with benefits of purity, less chemical additives, less side effects for body and off course better flavour. Some manufacturer might flash their products with ‘health benefit’ tags and other attractive pointers. But check for certification seals and approval of product from registered testing authorities before relying on the advertisements.
