The Worst Foods for Pesticides & What You Should Avoid - Eluxe Magazine

As the weather grows warmer, most of us will be eating more salads and fruits, which is a good thing. But did you know that some produce carries more pesticide than others?

Here's how coffee ranks - 

9. Coffee

Oh, it’s a sad fact for us coffee lovers, but this bean is one of the most intensively sprayed crops around. Why? Normally, coffee is grows on bushes naturally in the shade, but to increase production, most large coffee makers cut down huge swaths of rainforest (hello, Nestle!) and douse the beans with chemicals to grow coffee more quickly.

But don’t worry–there are plenty of ways to get a healthy cup of morning sunshine–organic coffee is becoming more mainstream as the public demands food staples with fewer chemicals. Just be aware that FairTrade does NOT mean the brand is organic–it refers only to the price farmers are paid for their work.

If you can’t find organic, certified shade-grown coffee is the next best thing–coffee grown in more natural circumstances is less likely to be heavily sprayed, and ensures your beans are not destroying rainforests.

Customer Quotes
Love love love this place. The staff is so personable and due to my regular visits I have become personal friends with a few of the staff. Their coffee is amazing and never half assed quality or customer service. The bagels with house made cream cheese are to die for and the seasonal blended drinks are delicious (which says something for a black coffee drinker). I would also like to mention that it is also the cleanest coffee shop I have ever set foot in. Without this place, St. Johns wouldn't feel the same.
