The scent of coffee in the morning, is there something even remotely better ? There are many of tea types, some are bad, some are good but some manually selected tea leaves and coffee beans are just amazing. Ethics and transparency in the coffee supply chain has received huge attention over the past decade, and with good reason! Traditionally, Arabica coffee is traded on the stock market based in New York which dictates the global price for coffee based on supply and demand. In the late 90s, Vietnam’s coffee production boomed and the market was unexpectedly flooded with an excess supply of coffee. This triggered an 8 year crash with the market operating at levels never seen before.

Our tea pick today : Black Tea: The most flavorful of teas, black teas are oxidized for longer than their green and oolong counterparts, creating stronger aromas and robust tastes. Expect full-bodied, rich flavors, and colors ranging from black to dark red. Reported Benefits: Some studies have shown that black tea could reduce the risk of stroke, regulate cholesterol, and lower blood pressure. Caffeine? Yes, though typically a little less than a cup of coffee. Read more details on Craft tea UK.

Eco friendly coffee tip of the day : Buy From The Right People: Not all coffee roasters treat their craft with the same respect. Some carry very little about their environmental footprint. Some rigidly control their footprint with incredible precision. I encourage you to look into the practices of your local roasters to find which ones are doing a good job of reducing, reusing, and recycling. Support the efforts of those roasters, and put pressure on the others to play their part. For starters, I suggest beginning to use a reusable coffee filter. They eliminate paper waste complete, as well as k-cup waste. It’s easy to use, brews rich and delicious coffee, and will reduce your footprint in a small, yet meaningful way. We are all responsible for our planet and our own footprint. It doesn’t matter whether we drink one or five cups per day, we all play a role.
