What is Butter Coffee?

Butter coffee, also recently called bulletproof coffee, is currently the rage in some places. Butter coffee is eight ounces of freshly brewed coffee plus a teaspoonful each of unsalted butter and coconut oil. There are variations on the theme but the claim of those who like butter coffee is that it gives you more energy, helps you lose weight and avoids the ingestion of so-called inflammatory sugars. It turns out that butter coffee is not really a new idea. In Ethiopia where coffee was first discovered putting butter in freshly brewed coffee is a custom.

Is Butter Coffee Good, Bad or Indifferent?

We have written at length about the health benefits or both regular and healthy organic coffee. But good health recommendations today include limiting the amount of saturated fats in your diet. When you think of saturated fats think of animal fat and butter! The claim that drinking butter coffee helps you lose weight is not proven. It does make sense that fats and proteins take longer to digest so that we do not feel hungry as soon after butter coffee as we might after black coffee and sugar. Limit yourself to butter coffee instead of black coffee and a greasy sweet roll and you are probably exchanging the butter in the sweet roll for the butter in the coffee and excluding the carbohydrates in the sweet roll. But you are probably also missing out on the B vitamins that are commonly included in and added to wheat flour!

What Is the Proof and Can You Trust What They Say?

We just published an article about a Bogus Green Coffee Extract Claim. A couple of years ago a study was published stating that healthy volunteers who took measured quantities of green coffee extract lost weight. It turns out that the data was fudged and the US researchers who published the study have just retracted it. In addition the company that sponsored the study is in hot water with the Federal Trade Commission!

The Federal Trade Commission has levied a fine of $3.5 million on Applied Food Sciences, the company that sponsored the study claiming that green coffee extract resulted in weight loss. Here is a quote from the FTC.

…the study’s lead investigator repeatedly altered the weights and other key measurements of the subjects, changed the length of the trial, and misstated which subjects were taking the placebo or GCA during the trial. When the lead investigator was unable to get the study published, the FTC says that AFS hired researchers Joe Vinson and Bryan Burnham at the University of Scranton to rewrite it. Despite receiving conflicting data, Vinson, Burnham, and AFS never verified the authenticity of the information used in the study, according to the complaint.

Despite the study’s flaws, AFS used it to falsely claim that GCA caused consumers to lose 17.7 pounds, 10.5 percent of body weight, and 16 percent of body fat with or without diet and exercise, in 22 weeks, the complaint alleges.

The point of bringing up the green coffee extract fiasco is this. If you like to put butter and or coconut oil in your coffee and skip the cream and sugar go for it. But do not go for the hype about there being specific health benefits to drinking butter coffee or so-called bulletproof coffee without seeing well documented proof. Organic coffee is good for your health. There are lots and lots of well documented studies showing the benefits of coffee and there is a lot of good data showing that organic coffee is free of a large number of contaminants that may be found in regular coffee. Enjoy your coffee but insist on proof before using concoctions like butter coffee as replacements for good dietary advice or medications.

Bogus Green Coffee Extract Claim

We would like to alert our readers to a bogus green coffee extract claim. In 2012 we published an article entitled, Lose Weight with Coffee Bean Extract.

A chemist in Pennsylvania reports that when sixteen volunteers lost weight when they took a gram of green coffee bean extract daily for five months. According to the study report the volunteers were in their twenties and all overweight. These folks did not change their diets or the amount of exercise that they did, or didn’t, engage in. According to researchers there were no ill effects on the volunteers’ blood pressure readings or heart rate. The average weight loss in this study was just over ten pounds.

In 2013 we wrote about organic green coffee extract.

What Joy Is There in Taking a Pill?

Health benefits aside most folks drink coffee because they like the aroma and taste as well the wake up effect. There is a degree of sadness to distilling the benefits of coffee into a pill to be taken once, twice, or three times a day. After all one can buy caffeine pills to stay awake. Truckers and college students have been doing this for years. Our vote is obviously for the hot cup of freshly roasted organic coffee or even the lukewarm coffee in a thermos over popping a pill. There are a lot of folks selling organic green coffee extract. If you do go this route, look to see if they are certified. It is easy to claim to be organic but they need to have the USDA seal to show that their product is organic from start to finish!

Trusting in the researchers we published these articles. OOPS!

Bogus Green Coffee Extract Claim

The point of all this is that researchers in India fudged the results of their study and no one followed up. This was a bogus green coffee extract claim and should be ignored. If you purchased any green coffee extract for the purpose of losing weight you may want to ask for, or demand, your money back.

Genetic Desire for Coffee

Why do some folks drink coffee and some folks avoid the stuff? There are certainly good reasons to drink healthy organic coffee. We have written repeatedly about the health benefits of coffee including reducing the risk of diabetes, helping avoid cancer and reducing the risk of neurologic diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. But the benefits do no explain why some folks are naturally coffee drinkers and some are not. It turns out that there is a genetic desire for coffee that some folks inherit.

Genetic Desire for Coffee

An article published in Molecular Psychiatry, October 7, 2014, reports that there are six different sites in our genes that are associated with levels of coffee consumption. The scientists involved performed what is called a meta-analysis of coffee consumption by more than ninety thousand coffee drinkers. They looked at the correlation between amount of coffee consumed and the presence of absence of specific genes in specific spots on various chromosomes. It turns out that there are six locations for which there is a statistically significant relationship between presence or absence of the gene and amount of coffee consumed. In short there appears to be an inherited or genetic desire for coffee.

But You Still Get to Enjoy Your Coffee

This may sound a little deterministic. In other words do we really have any choice or are our trips to the coffee shop decided for us by our genes? Remember that you like your cup of coffee. So, no matter what makes the experience enjoyable, you get to enjoy your coffee.

And Coffee Is Still Good for You

The study cited adds nothing to the mounting evidence that coffee is good for you. Rather it simply notes that there is a predisposing genetic desire for coffee in some folks. The authors of the study mention the many positive health benefits of drinking coffee but do not link those benefits to the genetic desire for coffee. That was not the purpose of the study. Anyway, the point is that you get to choose and we suggest that you choose coffee, preferably organic.

Choose Coffee and Choose Organic

Coffee is good for you and organic is better. Think of safe organic coffee when you buy.

If you are worried about all of the junk that someone might be putting in your food consider safe organic coffee. USDA organic coffee is certified to be grown according to sustainable growing practices. Coffee used to be grown in the shade and commonly in forested areas. Historically the environment and spacing out the coffee plants took care of much of the problem of insects and plant diseases. However, new coffee strains were introduced which can grow in the full sun. With the use of synthetic fertilizers the grower produces more coffee. He also erodes the soil and leaves synthetic fertilizer residue in the coffee bean. Crowding of plants brings about more plant diseases and pests which growers commonly treat with fungicides and pesticides, which also end up on the coffee bean. Safe organic coffee, on the other hand is grown and certified to be grown without use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. Over one hundred thirty contaminants can be found in a cup of regular coffee. The Australian Food Standards Authority found metals such as aluminum and zinc, pesticide residues, and many other unwelcome substances in commercially available regular coffee. The effects of some of these chemicals are impairment the immune system, liver problems, and even certain kinds of cancer. On the other hand, antioxidants in black organic coffee in easy to find organic coffee brands can help prevent disease.

Why Buy Arabica Coffee

Why buy Arabica coffee? If you are looking for a pick me up, robusta coffee beans contain more caffeine than Arabica beans. And Robusta coffee futures are sitting at around $1.10 a pound while Arabica futures are more than $2 a pound for lowest quality Arabica beans. So why buy Arabica coffee? People buy Arabica coffee because it tastes better and has a better aroma. Arabica is higher quality coffee than Robusta. Now the question is where do you get your Arabica coffee?

Colombian Organic Coffee

We are, by the way, an organic coffee site. The best coffee is Arabica and the best Arabica is organic from Colombia. Here is a little info about Brands of Organic Coffee from Colombia. Colombia produces the second largest amount of Arabica coffee in the world, second only to Brazil. Brazil is experiencing a drought and expected to see decreased production.  Colombia has recovered from the effects of the 2008 el Niño and expects to see a record harvest. Colombia’s production is forecast up 1.0 million bags to 12.0 million on higher yields.  With the increase in overall coffee production in Colombia one can expect an increase in organic production as well. Wholesale organic green coffee from Colombia is some of the best Arabica coffee in the world.

Wholesale Organic Arabica Coffee

Colombian coffee is the best Arabica coffee in the world. There are several outstanding Colombian organic coffee brands. Here is a short list of folks in the Cafetero who can provide organic wholesale coffee in quantity.

Why Colombia?

Colombia ranks behind the larger country of Brazil in coffee but Colombia is the best producer of high quality Arabica coffee. To get organic wholesale coffee from Colombia you need to deal with a professional exporter because of issues unique to Colombia, namely a sixty year long civil war. Colombia’s civil war began in the 1950’s and is still going. What began as a fight for the rights of small farmers has largely turned into paramilitary groups of drug lords and mini drug lords and kidnappers hiding out in the jungle with little chance of reintegrating into society. The government has gotten the rebellion out of the cities but the surviving drug lords in the jungle still try to ship their product out of the country by various means. If you need help getting high quality organic Arabica coffee feel free to contact us at www.BuyOrganicCoffee.org. We will be pleased to find the coffee you want and need and to arrange export and shipping. Don’t worry about not speaking Spanish. We will deal directly for you with folks in the Eje Cafetero, the Colombian coffee growing district. Why buy Arabica coffee? It is the best. And the best of the best is organic Arabica coffee from heart of Colombia. Contact us today for more information.

How Much of the Cost of a Cup of Coffee Are the Beans?

How much of the cost of a cup of coffee are the beans? This question comes to mind as the price of Arabica coffee goes up again. We wrote previously that the Brazil drought drives coffee prices higher. But if the price of coffee beans goes up ten percent does the cost of your coffee go up by the same percent or the same number of cents? The United States Department of Agriculture published an article about the cost pass-through in the coffee industry. We found it published at Colombia.edu.

A rich data set of coffee prices and costs was used to determine to what extent changes in commodity costs affect manufacturer and retail prices. On average, a 10-cent increase in the cost of a pound of green coffee beans in a given quarter results in a 2-cent increase in manufacturer and retail prices in that quarter. If a cost change persists for several quarters, it will be incorporated into manufacturer prices approximately cent-for-cent with the commodity-cost change. Given the substantial fixed costs and markups involved in coffee manufacturing, this translates into about a 3-percent change in retail prices for a 10-percent change in commodity prices. We do not find robust evidence that coffee prices respond more to increases than to decreases in costs.

Thus there is an eventual thirty percent pass-through in the cost of green coffee beans to a bag of roasted coffee beans. This tells us how much of the cost of coffee are the beans.

Organic versus Regular Coffee

The price of coffee is going up because of the drought in Brazil. The bountiful harvest in Colombia is not enough to pick up the slack. But, other factors come to bear on the price of organic coffee and the market price of healthy organic coffee beans. The problem with organic coffee production is not drought but heat. Coffee leaf rust usually does not infect coffee grown at altitudes higher than 6,000 feet. This is because the fungus cannot tolerate the low nighttime temperature usually found at that altitude. But, as temperatures climb just a few degrees in the nighttime in Central and South America the fungus is creeping up the slopes to where organic coffee is commonly grown. The issue with organic coffee is that there is a lot less of it than regular coffee. Although the cost to put a bag of organic coffee on the shelf of a store in North America only goes up thirty percent of the percent rise in the cost of coffee beans the scarcity of organic coffee will tend to drive prices higher. This is the age old law of supply and demand. Eventually other producers will catch on to what Colombia has done. They will replant with leaf rust resistant strains. This will allow coffee production and especially organic coffee production to rise again and help bring down prices. In the meantime expect to pay more for organic coffee beans.

Wholesale Organic Green Coffee from Colombia

Coffee production in Colombia is returning to pre-2008 levels. We noted this fact in our article Wanted: Coffee Pickers is Colombia. The June 2014/15 USDA forecast illustrates this fact with a graph.

Colombia Coffee Production

Colombia Coffee Production

Colombia’s production is forecast up 1.0 million bags to 12.0 million on higher yields. Continued growth is expected following 7 years of below -average output due to the spread of coffee rust and coffee cherry borer insect. The rust initially affected as much as 40 percent of the planted area, but has since declined to less than 10 percent following an aggressive tree renovation program. Colombia is expected to rely on imported beans from Ecuador and Peru for just one-third of consumption, down from nearly 85 percent a few years ago. Bean exports are forecast to gain 300,000 bags to 10.5 million on increased shipments to the United States and Europe.

With the increase in overall coffee production in Colombia one can expect an increase in organic production as well. Wholesale organic green coffee from Colombia is some of the best Arabica coffee in the world.

Why Colombia?

Colombia is a major coffee producer ranking behind the larger country of Brazil in coffee volume produced. But Colombia is the best producer of high quality Arabica coffee in volume for shipping organic wholesale coffee. To get organic wholesale coffee from Colombia you need to deal with a professional exporter because of issues unique to Colombia, namely a sixty year long civil war. Colombia’s civil war began in the 1950’s and is still going. What began as a fight for the rights of small farmers has largely turned into paramilitary groups of drug lords and mini drug lords and kidnappers hiding out in the jungle with little chance of reintegrating into society. The government has gotten the rebellion out of the cities but the surviving drug lords in the jungle still try to ship their product out of the country by various means. So, if you are going to fly out of Manizales, Pereira, Medellin, Cali, or Bogotá expect to have your bags searched for drugs as a large drug-sniffing police dog sits by. The office will pin prick any bags of coffee that you are carrying and test with a mechanical “sniffer” if not the large pooch at his side. If you decide that you would like to forego this experience and mail your coffee back home forget it. You cannot mail packaged coffee out of Colombia! If you are interested in Colombian organic coffee brands you need to carry the coffee out yourself or deal with someone who exports Colombian organic coffee brands.

Reduce Your Risk of Dying by Drinking Coffee

We often write about the many health benefits of both regular and healthy organic coffee. In short these benefits include a reduction in risk of getting type II diabetes, colon cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, skin cancer, depression, committing suicide, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. So, the natural question to ask is if you can reduce your risk of dying by drinking coffee? This seems logical but now there is solid evidence reported in an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The report is entitled Association of coffee drinking and cause-specific mortality and is published in volume 366. Here is what it says about whether you can reduce your risk of dying by drinking coffee.

How the Study Was Set Up

The researchers examined the association of coffee drinking with subsequent total and cause specific mortality among 229,119 men and 173,141 women in the National Institutes of Health-AARP Diet and Health Study who were 50 to 71 years of age at baseline. Participants with cancer, heart disease, and stroke at the start of the study were excluded. Coffee consumption was assessed once at baseline.

What the Researchers Found

The study group was followed from 1995 to 2008. A history of smoking and other factors that increase the likelihood of dying were statistically adjusted for. The numbers of men and women who died during the course of the study was 33,731 and 18,784 respectively. When adjusted for so-called confounding factors, such as smoking, there was a statistically lower likelihood of dying if you were a coffee drinker. And it turns out that you could further reduce your risk of dying by drinking coffee in larger quantities. Using a measure called a hazard ratio the researchers looked at men and women who drank up to six cups of coffee a day. Compared to those who did not drink coffee the coffee drinkers had a decreased risk of dying with every extra cup a day consumed.

Cups/Day
Men Women
1 .99 1.01
2-3 .90 .87
4-5 .88 .84
6 or more .90 .85

In short, you can reduce your risk of dying by drinking coffee. But the benefit seems to reverse itself in men when they go from five cups to six or more a day. The best reduction in risk in men is twelve percent in the 4-5 cup a day group and for women sixteen percent in the 4-5 cup a day group. The study did not consider whether the coffee was organic or not.

Antioxidants

Regular and organic coffee antioxidants are known to reduce the risks of various diseases including type II diabetes. Coffee is the leading source of antioxidants because we drink so much coffee. Thus it would seem fair to assume that getting your antioxidants throughout the day may be a large part of why you can reduce your risk of dying by drinking coffee.

Benefits of Caffeine

The caffeine in coffee wakes us up in the morning and keeps us going at mid-day. It also helps us avoid depression and even has been shown to reduce the risk of committing suicide. Caffeine also is part of why you can reduce your risk of dying by drinking coffee.

Less Ringing in Your Ears with Coffee

There are all sorts of wonder health benefits from drinking coffee, especially healthy organic coffee. Now there is another benefit. It appears that you get less ringing in your ears with coffee consumption. This info comes from a prospective study derived from the Nurses’ Health Study II. Nurses’ Health Study II

was established by Dr. Walter Willett and colleagues in 1989 with funding from the National Institutes of Health. The primary motivation for developing the Nurses’ Health Study II was to study oral contraceptives, diet and lifestyle risk factors in a population younger than the original Nurses’ Health Study cohort.

Over the years a wealth of useful information has come from follow-ups on this group.

Less Ringing in Your Ears with Coffee

According to info published by the researchers in Nurses’ Health Study II, caffeine was originally thought to cause tinnitus, also called ringing in the ears. In order to test this hypothesis the researchers looked at the reports from 65,085 women aged 30 to 44 in the study group as of 1991. Information regarding ringing in the ears, tinnitus, was obtained from 2009 reports. Eighteen years after the initial baseline info was obtained more than 5000 women reported some degree of ringing in the ears. Interestingly the relationship to drinking coffee was opposite what common wisdom had predicted. Women who reported drinking two and three cups of coffee day had a significantly lower incidence of this condition that women who drank a cup of coffee a day or less. The conclusion of the report was that women who drink coffee have a lower incidence of ringing in the ears that those who do not. The study did not include men and did not address organic versus regular coffee.

One More Good Reason to Drink Coffee

This is just one more good reason to drink coffee. We have reported on these pages how coffee reduces the risk of type II diabetes, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer and colon cancer. Scientific evidence indicates that drinking coffee reduces your risk getting Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, depression or cirrhosis of the liver. We even noted that coffee may make sex better!

Does coffee make sex better? Interestingly scientific research shows that coffee can lead to sexual arousal in females. Studies of sixtyish men and women show that coffee drinking women have sex more frequently and coffee drinking men have higher potency. A common sense finding is that coffee gives you a physical and mental boost that can carry over into more energy when making love. We posed the question last week, does coffee improve athletic performance. It turns that coffee does help. So, if your sex is of the athletic variety so much the better! And, better health is commonly synonymous with better sex. Both regular and healthy organic coffees have lots of health benefits.

So, drink up and enjoy both taste and aroma of the brew and the fact that coffee can help you in lots of ways.

Vitamins in Coffee

The caffeine in healthy organic coffee wakes you up, reduces your risk of depression, improves athletic performance, increases sexual appetite in women and enhances sexual performance in men. Organic coffee antioxidants help reduce the risk of type II diabetes and several kinds of cancer. Now, it turns out that there are vitamins in coffee as well.

 

Vitamins in Coffee

Vitamins in Coffee

 

Vitamins in Coffee

Here are the vitamins and minerals that you get with an eight ounce cup of coffee. These are in terms of RDA. RDA stands for recommended daily allowance.

Thiamine (Vitamin B1) 2%
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) 11%
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) 6%
Folic Acid (Vitamin B9) 1%
Magnesium 2%
Manganese 3%
Niacin (B3) 2%
Phosphorus 1%
Potassium 3%

Assuming that you drink more than one eight ounce cup of coffee a day you can multiply the percent of RDA per cup by the number of cups to get the total RDA of vitamins in coffee that you receive every day.

What These Vitamins and Minerals Do For You

Thiamine: As a co-enzyme that is involved in complete carbohydrate, protein and fat breakdown for energy. Chemical reaction pathways in our mitochondria allow for electrons to be removed from involved molecules and they are carried to electron transport chains found in the mitochondria membrane. The carriers are niacin and riboflavin based blueprints and constructing proteins.

Riboflavin: Vitamin B2, also called riboflavin, is one of 8 B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body to convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is “burned” to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein. B complex vitamins are necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system function properly. In addition to producing energy for the body, riboflavin also works as an antioxidant by fighting damaging particles in the body known as free radicals.

Pantothenic Acid: In addition to playing a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands, small glands that sit atop the kidneys. Vitamin B5 is also important in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it helps the body use other vitamins, particularly B2 or riboflavin. Your body needs pantothenic acid to synthesize cholesterol.

Folic Acid: Folic acid is used for preventing and treating low blood levels of folate (folate deficiency), as well as its complications, including “tired blood” (anemia) and the inability of the bowel to absorb nutrients properly. Folic acid is also used for other conditions commonly associated with folate deficiency, including ulcerative colitis, liver disease, alcoholism, and kidney dialysis. Women who are pregnant or might become pregnant take folic acid to prevent miscarriage and “neural tube defects,” birth defects such as spina bifida that occur when the fetus’s spine and back do not close during development.

As you can see there are good vitamins in coffee in addition to the many other healthy features that coffee offers.

Wanted: Coffee Pickers in Colombia

There was an interesting item on the TV news last night out of Bogot­á. In Manizales in the heart of the Eje Cafetero (the Colombian coffee growing axis) they are concerned that there will not be enough coffee pickers in Colombia for what is shaping up to be a record harvest. The Colombian coffee harvest suffered badly in 2008 when much of the crop was damaged by rain in an El Niño year. And the crop that year suffered a further forty percent loss to la roja, coffee leaf rust. Since that time Colombia has replanted extensively and recovered from the leaf rust with only a five percent crop loss last year. This year total Colombian coffee harvest is expected to come in at record levels. This is some relief for the coffee market as a Brazil drought drives prices higher. Of course, a record Colombian coffee harvest requires more than the usual number of coffee pickers in Colombia. When the hillsides of the Cafetero turn red with ripe berries, individual harvesters must move among the adjacent plants and trees to harvest shade grown organic coffee. Coffee is grown on slopes as steep as 70 degrees. (Think of this as mountaineering with a bag of coffee beans slung over your shoulder.)

More than Just Picking Everything in Sight

There is a skill set required for picking coffee beans. They must be ripe and not overly ripe. The berries must be removed without damaging the plant. This is not a mechanical operation but rather the work of skilled pickers who know their craft and are in excellent physical condition. After coffee is picked the beans need to be dried. This can be done on flat areas in full sun or in mechanical driers. The beans need to be adequately dried in order to avoid spoilage so the job needs to be done in a timely fashion. Otherwise spoiled coffee beans aptly called stinkers ruin the batch. And for a coffee farmer who has a mixed crop of regular coffee and healthy organic coffee the two types must be kept separate from the moment the beans are harvested through all processing and storage to comply with organic coffee certification requirements. So the request on the Bogot­á news for more coffee pickers in Colombia extends to folks with other important skill sets as well.

The Intended Result

It is a long way from the mountains around Manizales, Colombia to your kitchen table. The intended result of carefully tending coffee crops, picking shade grown organic coffee at the right time, carefully drying and roasting to perfection is an excellent cup at breakfast or whenever you desire. For more current information about Colombian organic coffee brands and especially wholesale organic coffee contact us at Buy Organic Coffee at your convenience. In the meantime we will be talking to our suppliers in Colombia and elsewhere to see how the crop is doing and if they have found enough coffee pickers to guarantee an excellent cup or organic coffee on your breakfast table.
