How Healthy is Organic Coffee – Organic vs Non-Organic
We can no longer make up foods or there is an organic version of it! During my weekly shopping round I found organic coffee this time. Would this really boost health or are we talking about marketing talk again?
I am the last to just take business so I bought the organic coffee and below you will find my findings. In addition to my own experience with this form of coffee, I also conducted a small research on the internet into the experiences of others and a number of facts in the field of coffee itself!
Organic Coffee vs Non-Organic Coffee
More expensive: One of the bigger differences is the fact that organic coffee is a hugely labor-intensive process when compared to the production of regular coffee beans. This means that the “organic form” of coffee is a lot more expensive than regular coffee.
The production process will also take longer as it will not be “pushed”, but the quality will be increased. Therefore, it’s not always easy to find quality beans at coffee beans shop. The blend must be composed with great care and passion to achieve a perfect coffee taste.
No chemical residues in your cup of coffee
In the production of normal coffee, fertilizers are always used, with organic coffee, among other things, cow manure and special leaves are used. This ensures that organic coffee does not come into contact with pesticides and the like in any way. This ensures that we are not exposed to it either.
Organic coffee is “fairly new” and this also limits the options. There are not too many flavors and some coffee machines do not support it yet …
- Organic coffee is more expensive per cup
- There is less choice in terms of taste
- Usually less caffeine
- Less chemical waste in the cup
My experience with organic coffee
Last month I bought organic coffee from Senseo! The very first thing I noticed that I could not immediately notice that it was the organic variant that was there in my cup. My first “sip” (because it was quite hot) tasted the same (depends of course on the taste).
When I started drinking, I noticed a fairly different difference, the coffee lingered a bit less long in terms of taste than I was used to. Not disturbing in itself, just different.
It was striking that there was less caffeine in the coffee. I noticed a little bit, but I went to find out if this was really the case.
Yes… Pure arabica beans (in senseo’s organic coffee) contain less caffeine than normal standard coffee. Especially nice if you like to drink a cup of “comfort” after dinner.
Is it healthier now?
Perhaps it is too early to report that it is healthier straight away, but the fact is that there is less chemical residues in the coffee in combination with the low caffeine content . These are perhaps the 2 most important reasons why you can’t drink too much coffee in one day!
Good for your heart and constitution!
