You often hear the term organic nowadays. For some, they wonder what all the fuss is about. Coffee is coffee, right? Well…yes and no.
Coffee is made from the same source – the beans from the coffee plant. Looking at them, you can’t tell the difference between the regular coffee and the organic coffee. They even taste the same.
The difference however is in how the coffee is grown. Organic coffee growers raise crops the traditional way – without chemicals or pesticides. These farms rely on more environmentally friendly methods to care for their coffee plants and get them through to a bountiful harvest. This year’s winner at the Kona Coffee Fest, Pearl Estates Organic Farm is an example of this.
Why should you consider choosing organic coffee? The answer is in the long term effects. Imagine that every time you drink your favorite cup of joe, you also drink some of the chemicals that went into raising the coffee plant. Not all chemicals are friendly to the human system. You run the risk of drinking in these harmful chemicals which actually are a slow poison, building up in toxicity in your body.
If health is high on your list, here is a good alternative you might want to try. Plus you still get a great cup of coffee anytime you want.
