When you go out to buy coffee, there’s a risk that your next drink might contain chemicals that could be hazardous to your health, such as pesticides, PCBs or lead.
You might also want to consider the ingredients of your coffee as it’s usually made from a range of coffee beans, including dark roast coffee, coffee that’s roasted at higher temperatures and coffee with added sugars.
This is particularly important when you’re ordering your coffee at a cafe or bar where the beans are stored for up to four weeks.
For example, if you buy a coffee at an Italian café and a coffee shop sells it at home, it’s likely that the beans will have been roasted at high temperatures for a long time.
You may also want a test kit to look for potential health problems.
But there’s nothing to stop you ordering a coffee drink at home from your favourite coffee shop.
The coffee you buy in the supermarket or takeaway shop should be labelled with the date it was bought and the ingredients.
There should also be a disclaimer saying that the coffee is made from fresh coffee beans.
To help you choose, these are some of the best and most popular brands of coffee you can buy in supermarkets.
