Mallay coffee and its health benefits

The main reason why drinking coffee is associated with reductions in various ailments is the fact that coffee contains antioxidants. Antioxidants slow down processes that damage and ultimately result in the death of cells in the human body. Oxidation is a critical factor in ageing and illnesses. Research has shown that is can be a contributing factor to reducing the risk of diseases including type 2 diabetes, cancer, depression, suicide, gallstones and even Alzheimer’s disease. When you drink healthy coffee, you are caring for your health:

Fair trade and Organic

We are producers and importers of certified organic coffee. Quality organic coffee comes with a fair-trade certificate, which means we care about our business, and the business of our vendors, the farmers, who deserve fair compensation for their diligent work.

Our coffee boasts organic certification, which is subject to a strict code for cultivating organic coffee. Given that we have intentionally avoided large retail chains, you get our organic coffee at the same price as ordinary conventional coffee.

Benefiting you and nature

The cultivation of organic coffee is environmentally friendly. It preserves soil quality and saves water. Cultivating coffee in the shade of wild-growing trees preserves the forest for birds and other wildlife that would otherwise lose their habitat.

So why drink organic coffee? It’s environmentally friendly and healthy. “When we move one single thing in nature, we quickly find out it is connected to the whole rest of the world.”

Naša história

Organic coffee has a history all its own

The history of coffee dates to the 13th century and its first use is shrouded in many myths. The original population of coffee trees most likely originated in Ethiopia, Sudan or Kenya, with the Arabs cultivating coffee from the 14th century. The first clear evidence of drinking coffee or at least knowledge of the coffee tree appears in the middle of the 15th century at Sufi monasteries in Yemen. Coffee was known in the Middle East, in Persia, Turkey and North Africa in the 16th century.

Coffee then spread to the Balkans, Italy and the rest of Europe, Indonesia and the Americas. Healthy organic coffee has been around ever since people discovered it growing wild and then cultivated it for themselves. The history of certified organic coffee as we know it today dates to 1990. This was the year that the Organic Food Production Act was adopted, which introduced an international list of authorised and banned substances containing all synthetic substances that may be used in cultivation and storage, as well as non-synthetic substances that cannot be used for organic cultivation. Farmers determined ways to increase yields, often by using harmful synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. Given that there was no way to differentiate between products grown using organic methods and products using modern methods, it was necessary to subject them to strict controls and certification.
