Ingredients of a ‘Healthy’ Coffee
I’m really down on these ‘healthy’ coffee companies. While there are several other scammy outfits out there selling snake oil, it blows my mind that these people try to market to people who actually know what coffee tastes like, and that whole bean coffee is naturally healthy. It’s like trying to tell a cigar aficionado that a Swisher Sweet is better than a Fuente Fuente OpusX, or serving fish sticks to a food critic who specializes in seafood.
This week, somebody sent me a sample of ORGANO GOLD CAFE LATTE. I had to laugh when I opened the package, as I remember saying “These clowns are relentless!” Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t send me their miracle coffee, begs me to join their healthy coffee company to become a millionaire, or requests to advertise on my site. The answer to all of these requests is NO FREAKING WAY! I have yet to taste a ‘healthy coffee’ that I would even consider finishing the cup, let alone drinking it by choice.
Do yourself a favor and enjoy a cup of the REAL healthy coffee…coffee! The stuff grows on trees, and it is only processed by drying and roasting. How in the world could turning it into a powder and lacing it with preservatives be better than the natural product? By adding a mushroom extract? I don’t think so. Give me the original “healthy coffee”…real coffee!!!! (Health benefits of coffee) The reason for this post is to share the ‘healthy’ ingredients of this “beverage”. No matter what unproven health benefits this mushroom may possess, I would have to say that in this form it would be negligible. I prefer to keep having my mushrooms sauteed and served with steak, not in my coffee.
There’s a reason that the Organo Gold website makes zero claims about having any health benefits. The only people you will ever hear making claims about this product are the ones who are selling it. Nobody buys it retail and the company doesn’t stand behind the claims that their representatives are making. If there’s no documented health benefits and it doesn’t taste good, don’t buy it. If there are health benefits realized by taking the mushroom, buy it from a health food store. Don’t use it to add to a low grade coffee-type beverage.
