There are many coffee alternatives, if you look around. We feel that coffee is still the best drink there is, especially for the morning!
There are many coffee alternatives
Coffee is not the only hot drink out there, and not everyone can drink coffee. Its nice sometimes to try something new, just fore variety! We have compiled a list of some of the more intersting choices. Tea has an almost-unlimited variety of flavors, and there are many more choices. Some are herbal blends, and there are even mushroom blends now. (We tried one, Mud/Wtr, and it is not very good - in fact here is a very humorous review of just how bad Mud/Wtr is).
We recently tried a new kind of tea, Motto Matcha Green Tea - and it is excelent! Read our review, and try it here.
Here are some of the choices (in non particular order)
Climate Change is affecting (hurting) the coffee industry
Climate Change is making many areas of the world dryer and hotter, and this makes it harder to grow coffee. This puts more pressure on farmers, and also raises coffee prices. Climate Change will be a challenge for the industry, for many decades to come. Pursuing shade-grown coffee is one option, for farmers in or near forests. There are many arguments, pro-and-con, about whether the coffee industry should expand, or shink to have less global impact. We think it is such a complex question, so we believe that your decision, in our opinion, for a coffee alternative should be based on health, and flavor considerations - not on economic or global impact.
