In this episode of A SENSe of Wellness, host Susan Greeley sits down with Andrew Salisbury, founder and CEO of Purity Coffee®, to talk about his quest to not only find but also produce and deliver the “world’s healthiest coffee” to consumers while supporting the health of the planet. The two unpack the nutritional makeup of the single most frequently consumed food in the U.S… coffee. This crave-worthy, energizing beverage is the number one source of antioxidants in humans’ daily diet globally, making these little beans incredibly powerful in fighting inflammation and oxidative stress, which aids in preventing diseases like liver failure, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.

They explore the differences between a bad, good, and great cup of coffee for your health and the environment. Listen in for more tips on what to look for to maximize the quality of taste and health in your cup!
