Man, I’ve been in love with actual real live Kona coffee from Hawaii, with real organic cream, the real stuff, not the watered-down stuff or the “half” stuff, for years now. I have attributed the fact that I’m still here on the planet, to drinking real live Kona coffee from real live Hawaii. I buy coffee that is grown in Hawaii, shipped to Nebraska as green beans, roasted in Omaha, and ground a bit at a time, as needed.
I learned yesterday listening to Doc Russ ( firstname.lastname@example.org, 602-524-5008 ) that in the coffee roasting process, nitrites (nitrates?) are released. Nitrates, nitrites, sulfates, and sulfites, none of those are what we want to be consuming. Coffee will go into the cells of your body and wreak havoc, havoc being leaching the stuff you want in your cells, out, and other fun stuff. You can hear Doc Russ talk about these nasty things on this conference call. Another fun thing I learned from Doc Russ: you know when you read a label and it says “natural flavorings?” That means aspartame. Sheesh.
All right, so I’ve heard this for years about how bad coffee really is for the body, and kept on drinking coffee because I’m just a rebel. This time, though, I’m going to do it. No more coffee for me, no more 100% pure whole organic whipping cream in my coffee. Water and lemon now, first thing in the morning, and as often as I feel like it throughout the day.
