4 Tips for Drinking Coffee
To get the many therapeutic benefits from drinking coffee, consider the following.
- Always Choose Organic. Coffee beans are one of the most heavily sprayed crops with pesticides. Choose coffee beans that are certified organic. You will eliminate the many positive effects coffee can provide, if you drink coffee that’s been drenched in pesticides or other toxic chemicals.
- Purchase Whole Beans. Purchase whole bean coffee that smells and tastes fresh. If there is not a nice aroma, it is probably rancid. Take time to grind the coffee yourself to prevent rancidity. Coffee that is already ground may actually be rancid by the time you get it home.
- Non-bleached Coffee Filters. If you use a “drip” coffee maker, always use non-bleached filters. The bright white ones are chlorine-bleached, and some of this chlorine will leach from the filter during the brewing process. Bleached filters are also notoriously full of dangerous disinfection byproducts, such as dioxin.
- Coffee Container. Be extremely careful about the coffee cup you use. Avoid plastic cups as the BPA will leach into your coffee. Avoid Styrofoam cups that will leach polystyrene molecules. Glass and ceramic mugs is the safest way to enjoy your coffee.
