    More on Coffee.

    I know you've done a few posts on coffee as it relates to individual health, the heart, exercise effects, etc. But what about additives, global economics, organic vs. chemical-laden versions, fungicides, pesticides, etc.? With so many of us here who drink coffee, a little further guidance about what's going into our cheap or higher-end coffees would be very useful. Some people might still be buying Folgers and Yuban, while others sneak into ritzy markets and pay for the super-hippie stuff - but a few might be overpaying for coffee masquerading as high-end while it's just, to cross terms, "monsanto, grain-fed, CAFO, etc." coffee. How can I know I'm getting clean beans?

    Google it? How do you figure Mark and the worker bees get their info? If the topic is dear to you it may not be worth the wait, right?

    I just buy organic beans from Central America, and I react badly the least to these kind of beans.

    I found my certified organic beans online. I brew up a few mugs of espresso per day in a low tech stove top espresso pot. The coffee, even drinking that much, runs me about 62cents/day (cream and/or butter cost more, of course) and it tastes better than anything I've ever had in a paper cup with a green logo on the front.

    But, I'd like to know coffee's good and bad points also. I think it makes my brain work better, but maybe my brain is just telling me that.

    Where are they sourced from specifically?

    I'd really like to find some awesome coffee. I don't drink it often, but when I do, I'd like it to be badass.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Starbucks is my favorite coffee shop in USA . I love this shop very much , their coffee is amazing and they provide excellent coffee service to people. I am really impressed by their service and they are very friendly . Coffee beans are most important part of coffee to make it more desirable and tasteful.
