There’s nothing like that first sip of coffee to jolt your senses in the morning and get you buzzing to take on the day. But, if I told you that you were starting your morning off with a dirty cup of joe, brimming with synthetic pesticides, would that be a total coffee-buzz kill?
Well then, it’s time we wake up, but this time, with a clean cup of coffee!
It’s likely that your morning roast can trace its roots back to the southern part of the world with Brazil, Vietnam, Columbia, and Ethiopia, just to name a few, as some of the top coffee producers in the world.
Although pesticides are used worldwide, coffee is one of the most heavily chemically-treated plants in the world, and on top of that, there’s something so few are talking about:
Synthetic pesticides and chemicals that are actually banned from countries, due to its harm to health and the environment, circle the globe, and find their way back into our morning brew, in what’s known as, “the circle of poison.”
Let’s take a look at the United States - a world leader in coffee imports:
The United States produces pesticides and chemicals that are banned for domestic use and sale, but legal for export to countries with fewer regulations.
These countries then use the chemicals and pesticides for food production, particularly on cash crops, with coffee being a popular one. Although these pesticides are not legal in the United States, residue of these pesticides remain on the food that is then imported into the U.S.
So before you take your next sip of brewed-up java, make sure it’s clean of chemicals, like synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides, and aim for purchasing organic.
You can ensure the beans or ground coffee you purchase are organic by your country’s organic certification seal on the packaging.
Due to higher standards of regulation, by purchasing certified organic, you can be of ease knowing you’ll start your mornings off with a cleaner cup of coffee, with all the caffeine, and none of the synthetic chemicals.
