5 Reasons To Stay Away From Coffee Blends
If you love coffee – but don’t like the way it makes you feel – there’s a surprising reason why.
Coffee blends might be the culprit.
Blends are made from the combination of two or more coffee beans, and most are quite low-quality.
These mass-produced coffee blends often contain mycotoxins and molds. They leave you feeling jittery and unhealthy.
On the other hand, healthy whole-bean coffee does the opposite. It floods your body with all-day energy and clean antioxidants.
Today we’ll uncover the 5 big reasons to stay away from coffee blends and what type to drink instead.
1. Coffee Blends Cause Digestive Issues
Digestive issues can ruin your day. They turn your stomach into knots, trigger bloating, and send you to the bathroom every hour.
Studies even link digestive issues to weight gain, leaky gut syndrome, and several diseases. Let’s just say an unhealthy digestive tract causes lots of “poopy” problems!
While you think you’re enjoying a morning cup of joe, it may actually be the main link to digestive issues. That’s why many get an upset stomach when they drink these mass-produced coffee blends.
Two or more types of coffee beans blended together is a recipe for disaster – especially when they were cheap beans in the first place. It’s kind of like mixing a cheap fatty Ribeye steak with a sugary glass of boxed wine. Yuck! Two wrongs don’t make a right!
Coffee blends can be highly acidic too, which causes an upset stomach after each cup. Steer clear of blends and shop for naturally low acid whole-bean or ground coffee. Your gut will thank you!
2. Coffee Blends Disrupt Sleep
We’ve all felt it. The restless leg syndrome and the late nights after slamming an afternoon cup of coffee.
Poor sleep increases risk of diseases like Alzeihmer’s, kick-starts weight gain, and damages your focus and happiness. Luckily though, you do not have to give up your afternoon coffee to kick the sleepless nights.
When you drink a high quality cup of joe, you can sip it well into the afternoon. (This may be why people in Greece and Italy drink coffee before bed while staying extremely healthy. These countries have more access to whole-bean roasts.)
It has more to do with the whole bean. Pure high quality coffee boosts your health, while cheap coffee blends cannot provide the same benefits.
3. Most Coffee Blends Contain Acrylamide
There’s another toxic substance in most coffee blends. It’s called acrylamide. This little toxin seeps into a lot of mass-produced beans.
Research shows that acrylamide is slightly carcinogenic. Although there are regulations in place for how much is allowed in coffee, it’s best to avoid it completely.
No chemicals needed here, right? Drink a whole-bean cup of joe instead. You’ll feel much better throughout the day.
4. Coffee Blends Are Riddled With Mycotoxins
Mycotoxins are the biggest issue with blended coffee roasts.
Since most coffee blends are made from cheaper beans, those beans are not grown in pristine high elevation. This causes mold to seep in and morph into mycotoxins.
The World Health Organization says mycotoxins can cause immune deficiency, harm organ function, and damage the digestive tract.
About 99% of the world’s coffee beans are riddled with mold and mycotoxins too – not just the blends! Do your best to find a coffee brand that scans for mycotoxins.
5. Coffee Blends Taste Half As Good As The Real Thing
As important as our health is, we all sip coffee for the taste. There’s nothing more refreshing than a good cup of coffee to start your day.
But we all know the feeling of that bitter, flat cup of joe. It haunts our taste buds for hours. Unfortunately, we still slam it just for the caffeine kick!
Just like fresh seafood tastes better than frozen fish sticks, coffee tastes delicious when it’s fresh too. Impure beans and blends lead to impure taste.
Whole bean, single-origin, pure coffee gives you a rush of delicious flavor and heaps of other health benefits.
And since studies clearly point out major problems with low-quality coffee blends, why not stay away from them?
