MIndful Coffee - What we’re About
We are a new family run business who are passionate about great coffee. Everything about our coffee is important to us:
- Where our coffee comes from
- Who grows our coffee and how the process works for them
- How clean and pure our coffee is
- How our coffee tastes
- How you take the time to enjoy our coffee (but that’s only because we care about you!)
Mindful Coffee – What’s it all about?
The journey from bean to cup can span thousands of miles but the road to Mindful Coffee has been no less interesting.
We’ve spent time considering what type of coffee would best fit our brand. It has to be organic (and certified to prove it), it has to be Fairtrade and it has to be of the highest standard, which is why Mindful Coffee is specialty grade but Mindful Coffee also has to be clean. It must be free from pesticides and toxins.
Our coffee is of the highest standard possible. We only use specialty grade coffee beans, which is of such fine quality that only 1% of coffee beans produced across the are specialty-graded. There’s plenty of information on specialty coffee at the Specialty Coffee Association https://sca.coffee/research/what-is-specialty-coffee
Where does your current coffee stand?
Are you drinking the quality of coffee that you want to? Here’s a quick guide to help you decide:
- Grade 4 Standard - low cost, own brand supermarket coffee and for most instant coffees
- Grade 3 Exchange - Typical ground supermarket brand coffee
- Grade 2 Premium - Good but not of the highest quality
- Grade 1 Specialty – These beans must pass strict standards and include only the best
If you’ve ever had that shaky feeling or headache after drinking coffee, it may not be down to the caffeine in the coffee but it could be the quality of the beans. Most poor-quality coffee will contain increased levels of mycotoxins. While mycotoxins aren’t noticeably harmful, a build-up from drinking them in your coffee every day could have a greater impact on your wellbeing that you can imagine. Mindful Coffee is clean, pesticide- and toxin-free.
We use an independent lab to test our coffee proving it is free from harmful mycotoxins
Fair for the farmer and fair for you
We believe that the farmers work hard to produce the best beans and so Mindful
Coffee beans will only ever be Fairtrade.
We also believe in the benefits behind bulletproof coffee and enjoy the mental boost that comes with it – but the price leaves a bitter taste. Coming from the United States, bulletproof coffee comes with a price tag that’s almost double ours. Our coffee is of the same standard as bulletproof – and clean with it- but brings with it support for a UK company and more money in your pocket.
Prices on Amazon
- Bulletproof coffee 340g - Around £29
- Mindful Coffee 500g - £18.97
It’s not always about what you do; it’s about how you do it. If you’re ready to upgrade your coffee, why not upgrade the positive impact it can have on your life as well.
If you’re like us, you’ll have your first cup of the day in the morning. Here, at Mindful Coffee, we want to promote the idea of using this time in the morning to practice a bit of mindfulness. Mindfulness is about being present and aware of who and where we are - it brings a sense of calm to our life and is a great way to start the day. You may already be comfortable with the concept or you may be ready to make some time in your life to be more mindful. This great post from mindfulness.org [https://www.mindful.org/what-is-mindfulness/] sums it up well.
So why not take the time to practice some mindfulness while you enjoy your morning coffee, it’s a great way to incorporate a little bit of ‘me time’ it into our busy lives #mindfulcoffeemorning
