This episode is all about one of my favorite drinks (no, not wine)… coffee! Today we are going answer the perennial question of whether coffee is good for you or not. For help I’ve asked Andrew Salisbury, founder of over 14 companies in the last 25 years, to tell us about his latest (and my favorite) company, Purity Coffee.
I drink Purity Coffee every day because it’s amazing coffee, but also because like my other favorite companies, they test everything for quality and are very transparent about the results.
Switching out the quality of our food and drink is one of the easiest things we can do to improve health and wellness, especially when it’s something we consume anyway. Since coffee is one of the most largely consumed beverages in the world (especially by moms!), I knew this was the place to start.
