If you drink coffee every day, you should care about the quality of your beans. Just like we believe in daily green smoothies, healthy coffee is also a daily habit we practice every morning to start our day.
This healthy cup of coffee give us stable energy, mental clarity, helps flush out the system and also keeps the skin glowing.
But is coffee good for you? Although coffee was considered unhealthy in the past, coffee is very healthy. Coffee isn’t just a caffeine boost, but an opportunity to infuse a variety of health benefits into your daily routine. Coffee happens to be the most significant source of antioxidants in the Western diet, and according to the National Institute of Health, coffee drinkers are protected from type 2 diabetes, several types of cancer, and the reduced risk of Parkinson's disease.
Not only can your daily cup help you feel more energized, burn fat and improve physical performance, but coffee may also even boost longevity. Studies also demonstrate that coffee leads to longevity with regular drinkers living longer. Decaf coffee appears to have favorable benefits, too. The benefits are not all thanks to caffeine, instead a combination of all the antioxidants and other natural chemicals found in coffee lead to making the conusmer healthier.
Coffee contains antioxidants and nutrients that reduce internal inflammation and protect against disease. The most known antioxidant in coffee is chlorogenic (klawr-uh-jen-ik) acid (CGA). CGA is an important polyphenol, playing several important therapeutic roles such as antioxidant activity, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, antiviral, anti-hypertension, and a central nervous system stimulator.

A single cup of coffee contains several useful nutrients, including:
- Riboflavin (vitamin B2): 11% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI).
- Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5): 6% of the RDI.
- Manganese and Potassium: 3% of the RDI.
- Magnesium and Niacin (vitamin B3): 2% of the RDI.
Our specialty-grade coffee is organically grown and roasted in small batches for maximum health benefits. The BEST way to get the most out of our organic coffee is drinking it black. And there is a way to do it without gagging from the bitterness or harsh acidic bite- quality beans and brewing it the right way. It’s incredibly balanced, as well as full of flavor on its own. No additives necessary.
Commercial coffee is heavily treated with chemicals at the farm level. We want you to realize that not all coffee is created equal, and that truly healthy coffee starts with the beans. We source our coffee from roasters who work with farmers focused on quality and sustainability and farm 100% pesticide-free coffee.
Moldy coffee beans can generate coffee contaminated with mycotoxins, which can produce significant health risks to consumers.
Most people have just a couple of qualifiers when purchasing their coffee; price and taste. However, when buying coffee, more than just price and taste should be considered. There are some coffee brands out there harming not only your body but also our planet.
Strictly High Grown (SHG) is a standard that provides the most nutritious bean because the farmers do not have to use any harmful herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides due to the natural high elevation environment. This practice is an organically- grown method. Additionally, the beans develop slower than industrial farming, meaning that soil nutrients seep longer into the beans allowing for a high nutrient concentration. That is how Hug In A Cup Coffee provides a healthier and more flavorful coffee.
For coffee growers, mycotoxins and molds are nothing new. They have found efficient ways to deal with them. An essential method is wet processing, which effectively eliminates the mycotoxins and molds, and our farmers use this method. Roasting the beans also kills the molds that produce mycotoxins; according to one study, roasting can reduce ochratoxin A levels by 69-96%.
We choose to provide you with a medium roast for our beans because they deliver a healthier nutrient profile. Since the lighter the roast, the more health-promoting polyphenols the bean will retain. Roasting coffee darkly destroys some of the bean's nutritional aspects and can lead to carcinogenic compounds forming on the beans.
We partnered with our roasters in California, who established a direct trade relationship with our wild coffee farms. We want to support them in keeping their century-old wisdom of traditional coffee harvesting methods alive. Ancient wisdom truly is magical. Their natural and organic methods naturally produce mold-free coffee and have high nutrient content due to its high elevation. Your business helps us help them with their livelihood. And in assisting them to pass that wisdom down, we can continue to get the health benefits through their organic coffee. It's a win-win for all.
Our mission is clear. We deliver clean, pure energy that you can drink with peace of mind for optimized health and longevity.
