At Venetian Coffee Roasters, we know the many benefits of organic coffee both for your health and the environment. We sell several brands of organic coffee from different countries. Our organic coffees come from Peru, Columbia, Honduras, Sumatra, Costa Rica, and Indonesia. These coffees contain fewer additives, chemicals, and pesticides. Our Organic Peru Swiss Water Decaf uses special mountain water to process the beans and remove caffeine naturally.
Environmental Benefit of Organic Beans
Organic coffee beans are grown with chemicals and pesticides that are often linked to health issues. This means the chemicals are not passed into the coffee beans and fruit of the plant. Organic farmers use a safer, less toxic way of growing coffee. Organic coffee has more micronutrients than regular coffee like magnesium, potassium, niacin, B vitamins, and minerals. Organic farmers practice fair trade standards and this means they practice sustainability and practice environmental safety. The yields of coffee are consistent and the growing methods better for the local community.
Organic farming emits less carbon and greenhouse gases. They practice composting which breaks carbon in the ground before it is released into the atmosphere as a gas. It is grown in the country's natural environment in forests and shady areas. The land is not cleared and forests or land remains intact when growing organic coffee.
Health Benefits of Organic Coffee
A moderate amount of coffee can help with concentration and mental tasks. This is due to caffeine which acts as a stimulant. It can improve alertness in driving at night, studying late, and working at night. In older people it has been shown in some studies to prevent cognitive decline in both men and women. Drinking coffee lowers the risk of diabetes due to the fact that it suppresses the desire for sweets. This means that you will eat fewer sweets when you drink coffee.
Organic coffee helps those on a diet lose weight easier because it increases the metabolic rate. The nutrients help process food better and keep the hormones in check. Coffee is known to increase adrenaline in the blood and improve performance. Adrenaline can improve the way fat is used as fuel and improve workouts and physical work performance. It stimulates the brain and helps prevent dementia and cognitive disorders. Organic coffee improves depression due to the caffeine that acts as a stimulant. It has antioxidants that protect the body from illness, and you get more from coffee than fruits and vegetables.
