Organic Coffee Side Effects, 1: Better Quality Coffee

Your organic coffee is almost always Arabica organic coffee.

There are two basic species of coffee, Arabica and Robusta. Arabica coffee is generally believed to be the first type of coffee to be cultivated with a tradition stretching back over a thousand years. When you buy Arabica organic coffee you are choosing the species of coffee with superior taste.

Arabica has less caffeine than Robusta, the other basic coffee type. But Arabica has more complex flavor and aroma and is the ingredient of most gourmet coffees. So, when you choose organic coffee for whatever purpose, the side effects are better aroma and better taste.

Organic Coffee Side Effects, 2: Health Benefits

Coffee has many health benefits. And most of those benefits come from the antioxidants found in green coffee and also those formed during roasting. Higher quality coffee such as organic coffee typically has more antioxidants and therefore more health benefits.

As we noted in the article there is more to the coffee and sex story. Coffee drinkers are less likely to get diabetes and the impotency that comes with that bad disease.

Organic Coffee Side Effects, 3: Why Organic versus Regular Coffee?

When you look for organic coffee, look for proof of organic coffee certification.

The soil in which organic coffee is grown must have been verified as free from prohibited substances for at least three years. In addition there must be distinct boundaries between land on which organic coffee is grown and land where pesticides, herbicides, and prohibited chemical fertilizers are used.

Organic coffee certification includes the adherence to a specific and verifiable plan for all practices and procedures from planting to crop maintenance, to harvest, de-husking, bagging, transport, roasting, packaging, and final transport.

There is a lot of work required to get organic coffee certified. But, the end result is that your cup of organic coffee does not contain measurable amounts of synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, or chemicals used to kill insects that attack coffee plants. If you want coffee in your coffee cup and not synthetic and potentially dangerous chemicals, drink organic coffee. And if you want to make sure that what you are drinking is really high quality organic coffee, look for proof of certification such as the USDA organic (United States Department of Agriculture) seal on the container.

Organic Coffee Side Effects, 4: Better Coffee Farming Protects the Environment

The general term for the kind of farming used to produce organic coffee is sustainable agriculture. Plant matter is tilled back into the soil. Animal waste provides nitrogen for plants. And no synthetic fertilizers leach down into the water table. Growing coffee in the shade creates a better coffee. And leaving the trees in place provides a place for the birds to nest. Also, leaving in place or planting trees among the coffee plants helps prevent soil erosion as well. Organizations such as the Smithsonian Institution help in this regard with their bird friendly certification.

Bird friendly coffee comes from coffee plantations with a variety of shade trees and not just a monoculture on one kind. The Smithsonian requires native trees appropriate for native birds.

A wonderful example of organic coffee side effects might be preservation of habit for a Colombian songbird such as the Tangara Gyrola which lives in the heart of the Colombian coffee growing region near Manizales.
