Difference Between Organic and Non-Organic Coffee

With every product in modern times there is a huge social push to turn organic. Can the same logic be applied to coffee? We all drink copious amounts of both organic and conventional (non-organic coffee) every day, yet is this really sustainable or should we all be opting for an organic switch in order to protect our health and the environment. Read on below to see the differences between organic and non-organic coffee.

Which Coffee Type is Healthier?

Now the short answer to this is of course organic, yet there are many reasons as to why this is the case. Organic coffee does not contain any synthetic fertilisers or chemicals that conventional coffees are full of. In fact conventional non-organic coffee contains around 200 pesticides which makes it one of the most heavily chemically treated crops of any crop in existence! Another reason as to why organic coffee is healthier is due to it being placed in partial sunlight unlike conventional coffee which is grown in full sunlight. This is not ideal due to full sunlight weakening the coffee plants and making them more susceptible to insects and other pests.

Why is Organic Coffee Better

Organic coffee is better than conventional non-organic coffee due to the health benefits it offers to us. Whilst conventional coffee still maintains some of its health benefits, organic coffee beans are high in nutrient-rich antioxidants which are beneficial to your personal health. Drinking organic coffee can result in a large number of benefits, some of these include;

  • Reduced chance of developing Type 2 diabetes
  • Lower chance of developing Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Reduced chance of being diagnosed with depression

All in all, if you are wanting to prolong your coffee drinking experience then you should opt for organic coffee.

Impact on the Environment

At Espresso we are a big advocate for reducing carbon emissions and improving our global carbon footprint. This is why we would advise to our customers to move towards a more solely organic coffee lifestyle, though organic coffee may be more expensive than conventional coffee the benefits by far out-weigh the price between the two. With conventional coffee being detrimental to our environment due to the amount of chemicals used in the process it really is a no-brainer for consumers to try and switch to organic coffee.

This also not only goes for coffee. Many cafés and famous coffee shops may be using organic coffee beans yet may be using non-organic milk and additional extras that will counterbalance the organic coffee they are using. If you are wanting to make a real change to our climate then be sure that your entire coffee making experience is as eco-friendly as possible and switch to pure organic.
