I take my coffee seriously. If I don’t have my ginormous travel mug of coffee in the morning, I lose my cherub-like demeanor. Moreover, I am notoriously particular, and I like my coffee how I like my coffee. Despite trying countless other options and variations, I want mine with a smidge of organic cane sugar and a tiny splash of light cream. My nephew once said that he thinks of my house as a very welcome place as there’s always freshly brewed coffee at a moment’s notice. I make good coffee. This may seem like a simple thing, but I have been to four-star restaurants that can’t seem to accomplish this feat. Like every other food and drink option in my house, I always welcome trying a healthier option, but when it came to organic coffees, my reaction upon trying them was universally, “Blech!”
When I opted to look at Cardiology Coffee, an organic coffee, my hopes weren’t high that it would be love at first sip. There was a lot, however, to like in the backstory. A holistic cardiologist, Dr. Jack Wolfson, much like myself, couldn’t find a healthy organic coffee that tasted good, so he sought out coffee experts to create one. Dr. Wolfson said that he, “created Cardiology Coffee for coffee lovers looking to optimize their heart health…without the jitters and stomach upset from most conventional coffees.” The coffee is grown by women in Southwest Honduras in their own cooperatives and 5% of the sales of Cardiology Coffee is donated to the Friends of Honduran Children.
What are some of the perks?
Cardiology Coffee states that their coffee is, “loaded with heart healthy antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals.
*Hand-selected organic coffee beans from around the world.
*Tested for toxins and found free of pesticides, mold mycotoxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and other contaminants.
*Roasted for health thanks to smokeless roasting technology, which maximizes antioxidants and minimizes acrylamide.
*Nitrogen-flushed bags to preserve freshness and maximize antioxidants.”
Where can you find Cardiology Coffee?
You can purchase Cardiology Coffee by clicking here. It comes in light, medium and dark roast coffee and is also available in a decaffeinated medium roast. I opted to sample the medium roast beans. The coffee is $22.00 for a 12 oz. bag of whole bean coffee or you can subscribe and save 20%. There is free shipping in the continental United States. There is also the added bonus of a money back guarantee if you don’t love it.
That is all well and good, but how was it?
I woke up, did my workout, or as I like to call it, “my coffee before my coffee,” and then made a pot of Cardiology Coffee. I ground the beans, and then used a standard coffee scoop to measure out a heaping scoop of ground coffee for every two cups on the carafe of my Cuisinart coffee maker. The scent of coffee brewing is one of my favorite smells in the world, and this one was no exception. It had a great aroma. I was hopeful as it did not have overbearingly strong “burnt” type smell. My optimism happily did not end in cup of disappointment as it was a smooth delicious mug of coffee. I found the medium roast to be perfect for me. If you are more Starbucks than Dunkin Donuts, then perhaps the dark roast is the way to go for you. It was not too weak or too strong and had a nice balanced flavor.
So, if you’re looking for an organic coffee that gets your heart pumping and taste great, Cardiology Coffee doesn’t skip a beat!
