Not All Coffee Is Created Equal - it’s all about the quality | Wild and Well Fed Organic Coffee

Some of the most nutrient-dense foods a human can consume have gotten a bad reputation from the Big Food/Big Pharma industries. Meat, dairy, eggs – any animal products, honestly – are at the top of the list. However, it’s never about the food itself, it’s about the quality.

Dairy, for example, is not inherently bad. Dairy is actually a true superfood, and one of the single most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It’s one of the only “perfect” foods - as a glass of whole milk, for example, has the perfect ratio of protein, carbs, and fat, and also contains some of the most important minerals and vitamins. However, there’s a caveat - it all comes down to the quality of the dairy.

We fully agree that factory farmed dairy is not only an extremely unhealthy food, but unethical as well. The animals are fed the lowest-quality GMO and non-organic grains (which they’re bodies are not designed to process), they are injected with growth hormones, and live in unnatural environments. The milk quality reflects the animal’s life and health quality.

High quality raw, grass-fed, organic, pasture-raised milk from ethically-treated cows cannot even be compared to the factory farmed dairy products sold in stores. This is why a blanket statement such as “dairy is bad” can never be made. The caveat is quality, as it is with any other product.

The same goes for coffee. Coffee has been labeled as unhealthy by many “health” groups, some doctors, and medical media. But not all coffee should be lumped together, just how all animal products should not be lumped together.

You could go to your local chain grocery store and pick up a non-organic bag or plastic canister of coffee from a generic brand. This coffee may look and taste like coffee, just like the cheapest off-brand milk is going to look and taste like milk.

However, this conventional coffee is going to provide very limited (if any) nutritional benefits, and consuming it regularly can become harmful for the coffee drinker.

Why? Non-organic coffee is one of the most heavily-sprayed crops in the entire world. That means with every cup of coffee you’re drinking, you’re also getting a cup full of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, such as glyphosate – the active ingredient in the herbicide, RoundUp.
