I enjoy drinking coffee. Ok, I LOVE drinking coffee! However, I’m a bit of a coffee snob. I’m very picky about the coffee I drink. Years ago I noticed that my stomach had a sensitivity to coffee. I then tried a more expensive brand, which made a difference. But over time, even that seemed to upset my stomach. What’s a coffee-lovin girl to do when she can no longer enjoy drinking coffee?
As the years went on my family became more and more health conscious. That’s when I decided to try organic coffee beans. You better believe it made a difference! Isn’t that odd? Just a simple switch to organic and I can drink coffee again. Well, turns out conventional coffee is among the most heavily chemically treated foods in the world. Yep, no wonder my body couldn’t handle it! You can read more about this here.
One of my favorite brands is Equal Exchange (this link will give you FREE shipping!). Not only are they organic, they also take great measures in how the grow and process their coffee. They process through non-chemical means to eliminate any threat of mold getting into the coffee. Believe it or not, this is actually a big deal and something to be on the look-out for.
My favorite is the Ethiopian blend. It has such a rich yet smooth flavor. There is NO added flavoring. Hooray for a natural flavor! If you prefer more of a light or dark roast they have plenty to offer! They also have chocolates, teas, and a few other items to choose from. Mmmm...chocolate and coffee, two of my favorite things!
