Did you know that a regular cup of coffee has more chemicals in it than any other product we drink? Fertilizers, fungicides, mycotoxins, insecticides, chemicals, microplastics, and even sticks and dirt can be found in mass produced coffee. They go straight into our coffee and into our stomach.
Mold is found 9 out of 10 times in conventional coffee according to multiple studies. The first symptom of mold exposure is brain fog, fatigue, memory loss, but it can get so much worse than that…. So imagine what drinking a moldy drink every single morning for 20, 30 or 40 years can do to our stomach!
Coffee has often been maligned as an indulgence that people should limit or avoid altogether, but is that an informed recommendation and is this advisable?
Coffee can be part of a healthy lifestyle, however, being mindful of the quality and type of coffee you consume makes all the difference. There is plenty of misinformation that preaches ditching coffee due to caffeine, but coffee is so much more than just caffeine… especially when it comes to health. Study after study indicates you are getting more from your favorite morning beverage than just an energy boost to kick off your day.

Coffee is a complex blend of hundreds of bioactive compounds, the amounts of which depend on its quality and how it is roasted. Caffeine is just one of those compounds. To make things even more complicated, scientists have discovered that the caffeine naturally occurring in the coffee works differently in combination with coffee’s “cocktail” of compounds, than caffeine from a laboratory (that is often the ingredient of energy drinks, soft drinks and supplements).
If you’re a coffee drinker, to experience all of the benefits highlighted in this piece, you should be drinking a specialty-grade, organic, high antioxidant, confirmed toxin-free, coffee that has been crafted to maximize health benefits to make sure you are setting yourself up for success. Switching to a coffee crafted for health could be the easiest choice you make, especially if you have a daily habit of brewing it at home.
Some health benefits of coffee include:

When I first learned all of this information about mold and the toxicity of coffee, I instantly ordered a few different ‘clean’ options to shift from my morning Lavazza. I personally loved the Fabula espresso the best.
After 3 bags of the Fabula coffee, here’s what I found:
- 1. Less stomach acid issues (I have a history of ulcers, so this was a big one)
- 2. Head fog disappeared
- 3. Not jittery from caffeine, it felt more like a natural energy
- 4. Sleeping better even if I slept less hours
At first I thought it was in my head, but after consistent use, I tried Lavazza one last time to see how I would react. My stomach felt like garbage, the jitters and head fog came back and I felt like I needed 3 cups that day. I don’t believe it was a coincidence.

Bottom line: besides purified water and coconut water, coffee is one of the healthiest drinks you can consume as long as it is organic, toxin free and sustainably sourced as mentioned previously in this piece.
You also want to avoid any artificial sweeteners and non-dairy milks. Fake sugar and dairy alternatives contain a myriad of harmful chemicals and can reduce the effectiveness of coffee’s many bioactive compounds and negate its healthy effects.
When produced at a high standard, the way God intended, it is a powerful superfood that can provide a host of health benefits. Salud!
