The bottom line....

Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world. For some, it is the largest source of antioxidants, outranking both fruits and vegetables combined.

Here are some tips on how to make your coffee consumption super healthy.


Coffee and Sleep

Caffeine is a stimulant, and is why it is one of the main reasons drinking coffee is so popular. It gives you energy, and helps you stay awake when you’re tired. While this is great to help you get through your day it can affect your sleeping pattern if you continue to consume it after 2:00pm. Avoiding coffee after 2:00 is probably a good idea to maintain a healthy sleep pattern.


Choose a quality brand, preferably organic. Coffee beans tend to be sprayed with synthetic pesticides and chemicals not intended for consumption. Lucky for you, we are a fair trade organic coffee supplier. We intend and follow through with giving our community quality coffee.


Avoid drinking too much. We know, easier said than done, but if you can contain yourself to about two cups of coffee daily you are on the right track (looking at you Eric…). Drinking coffee is about balance. Listen to your body, and enjoy your coffee at a tolerable rate.

Try adding cinnamon or cocoa to your coffee. Not just during the fall or winter season, but all year round. Studies show cinnamon can lower blood glucose, cholesterol, and triglycerides in diabetes. Cocoa is also loaded with antioxidants and associated with numerous health benefits. The fact that both add amazing flavor to your coffee is an added bonus.


Cut the Crap!

It is recommended not to load your coffee with sugar. Although coffee itself is healthy, you can easily turn it into something unhealthy by putting sugar in it. Because sugar is full of sucrose it can lead to things such as obesity and Type II diabetes. If you can’t drink your coffee without sugar try switching to something such as stevia or other natural sweeteners, or just drink better coffee.

Quality Coffee Matters

Choose a quality brand, preferably organic. Coffee beans tend to be sprayed with synthetic pesticides and chemicals not intended for consumption. Lucky for you, we are a fair trade organic coffee supplier. We intend and follow through with giving our community quality coffee.

Natural Flavors Additives

Try adding cinnamon or cocoa to your coffee. Not just during the fall or winter season, but all year round. Studies show cinnamon can lower blood glucose, cholesterol, and triglycerides in diabetes. Cocoa is also loaded with antioxidants and associated with numerous health benefits. The fact that both add amazing flavor to your coffee is an added bonus.

You are what you brew…

Last, try brewing your coffee with a paper filter. Brewing coffee with a paper filter effetely lowers the amounts of cafestol (compound that may raise cholesterol) while keeping all the caffeine and antioxidants pass through.

The bottom line is coffee is linked to many health benefits, and these tips will help you get the most benefit from that cup of black gold.
