Does organic coffee really matter?
Yes, it matters.
Coffee beans are some of the most chemically treated crops in the world.
That’s right. Coffee, grown using conventional methods is loaded with synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides.
Non organic coffee is some of the dirtiest stuff you can put in your mouth!
Want to get even dirtier?
Conventional methods of producing coffee don’t just harm you but also negatively impact the surrounding communities of the coffee farms.
When chemical run off finds its way into the air and water supply, even the farmers themselves aren’t safe!
And while we’re on the topic of cultivation, did you know that conventionally grown, mass produced coffee isn’t even grown the way nature intended?!
That’s right, conventional coffee producers use hybrid varieties which are specially designed to flourish in open sunshine.
So it’s not even grown the way coffee likes to grow!
Coffee plants like to grow in rich soils in the shade…
RED Coffee is grown the natural way: in rich volcanic loam under the shade of a lush forest canopy in Peru.
Organically grown coffee just tastes better, period.
And there’s a good reason for that: coffee is one of the most absorbent plants in the world.
What that means is that the better the growing conditions, the better the coffee will taste!
But be careful: coffee’s extreme absorbency can work against it too by soaking up tons of harmful pesticides and chemicals.
But that’s only an issue if you drink conventionally produced, non organic coffee.
As long as you stick with organically grown coffee you will have nothing to worry about!
Not only does organically grown coffee taste better but the growing methods are far better for the environment…
Organic coffee farms produce significantly less carbon emissions than conventional operations.
Add to the list that organic coffee beans are richer in health packed antioxidants and you have yourself a two for one deal:
Healthy Planet and Healthy Body.
So the next time you go to restock on coffee, don’t think conventional, think RED.
Think shade grown coffee produced the natural way and packed with the best punch of antioxidants money can buy.
It’s your middle-of-the-road, go-to steady medium roast. Enjoy it any time of the day.
