Searching for a suitable coffee brand to complement your healthy lifestyle? It can be difficult to find a coffee brand that not only satisfies your flavor needs, but your health needs too.
Thankfully, there’s Purity Coffee. One of the most nutritional options out there for coffee lovers, Purity Coffee allows you to enjoy a cup of coffee that not only tastes great but is also great for you.
About Purity Coffee
Purity Coffee is the brainchild of Andrew Salisbury, who developed the company out of his attempt to research the possible pros/cons of consuming coffee after his wife Amber’s health began to decline. Amber had begun to experience serious disabling fatigue, and in order to help energize herself, she began drinking as much as six cups of coffee every day! Wondering how her coffee obsession was impacting her health, Andrew set out to explore the possible harm and benefits of drinking coffee. He was in for a discovery.
Andrew and Amber began communicating with experts from the Vanderbilt University Institute of Coffee Studies. The couple quickly discovered that in fact, coffee has an overwhelming amount of health benefits. As a result, they created Purity Coffee. This company is passionate not only about coffee but primarily about the health benefits that coffee possesses. The main goal behind Purity Coffee is to educate consumers on the health benefits of coffee.
Using research from scientists, coffee industry professionals, and medical professionals, Purity Coffee designs their coffee to harness as many health benefits as possible. From cultivation methods, roasting techniques, and more, the company uses the healthiest strategies to make sure that your coffee is as nutritional as possible.
Purity Coffee is always trying to find new ways to experiment with the newest processes and methods available. Continuously attempting to find new ways to make their coffee better, their main goal is to enhance the lives of consumers of every age and state of health. Though we received only a portion of the products that Purity Coffee offers, it’s important to note the other products that this company offers as well.
All of Purity Coffee’s roasts and signature blends are freshly roasted, specialty grade organic coffee. Purity focuses on cultivating the healthiest quality coffee as possible, and all of the roasts are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. They also offer bags of whole bean coffee 12oz bags or 5lb bags, depending on how much coffee you consume.
Purity Coffee offers medium, dark, decaf, and a custom roast called the Founders’ Blend for you to enjoy! We got the chance to review the medium and dark roasts, but we’ll get to our review of those later. The two blends that we, unfortunately, weren’t able to test were the decaf and the Founders’ Blend.
Need to relax a little? You can sip on a savory cup of Purity Coffee and receive all of the health benefits without the spike of caffeine. Decaf Purity Coffee is 99.9% caffeine-free, yet still maintains the taste and all of the health benefits. They process their coffee through the Swiss Water process, primarily because it helps to ensure the overall quality of the coffee itself.
This is their limited signature blend which places more of an emphasis on flavor notes. If you’re looking for something delicious to drink and healthy, then the Founders’ Blend is for you. It still carries the same high standard for antioxidants and purity, but with a bit more attention placed on the blend and roasting curve.
Are you a Keurig brewer? No problem! Purity Coffee provides its coffee in pod form to create a more efficient method of brewing. These coffee pods are compatible with Keurigs, Mr. Coffee pod machines, and Hamilton Beach pod machines.
All of the pods are certified organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free, as well as pesticide, mycotoxin, and mold-free. Also, all of Purity Coffee’s pods are packaged in sustainable BPA-free recyclable material. They also offer decaf coffee pods, allowing for not only an efficient method of brewing but a caffeine-free option too.
Purity Coffee offers a prepaid coffee subscription service to provide you with up to 6 or 12 months of Purity Coffee per subscription. When you sign up for a 6-month option, you can also receive one free additional shipment, as well as 2 free additional shipments when you prepay for a yearly subscription! In our book, these options are almost too good to pass up.
Each subscription comes with a 12oz bag of coffee with a roast of your choosing. Each bag can produce approximately 25-30 8 ounce cups of coffee. You can choose anywhere from 1-4 12 ounce bags a month, or the largest amount which is a 5lb bag a month. You can also choose the option to have a coffee pod subscription instead of a whole bean subscription!
For Our Review…
We got the opportunity to review one of the most popular products offered by Purity Coffee: The Starter Pack. In our starter pack we received:
- 12 oz bag medium roast coffee
- 12 oz bag dark roast coffee
- Manual coffee grinder
- Two Pocket Purity Coffee Sachet Packs
- Six stickers
(Full disclosure – they sent us the starter kit for free to let us review it)
If wanting to give Purity Coffee a try but you also want a decent supply of coffee as well, then the Purity Coffee Starter Pack may be exactly what you’re looking for. We enjoyed this pack because it allowed us to try almost all of the most popular products that the company offers.
Though the grinder in the starter kit we received doesn’t have incremental settings of grind sizes, you can manually adjust the grind size by turning the adjustment wheel either clockwise for finer grinds, or anticlockwise for coarser grinds. This can be tricky though since you have to turn the knob and eyeball it to get the right grind setting for your brewing method.
The great news is that the grinder can be assembled in a matter of seconds. It consists of only a few parts, and the grinder mostly assembled with the grinding handle detached. There’s a screw located on the top of the grinder so that all you have to do is put the screw through the hole located on the handle, and voila!
One minor downside to the grinder is that it’s a manual grinding method and as you’re holding the grinder, there is some heat and friction generated by the grinder itself. It doesn’t impact the quality of the coffee too much, but it is something to take note of.
Medium Roast Bag
The medium roast is well balanced in flavor and acidity. It encompasses a slight citrus flavor, with a few notes of sweeter, smokey chocolate. The texture is smooth, and the coffee itself is well-bodied. It tastes delicious on its own as a black coffee, but can still pair well with a little milk or creamer.
The first thing we noticed right after opening the bag of dark roast beans is the layer of oil on them. The coffee is rich in flavor, with heavy notes of nuttiness, sweet chocolate, and earthy tones. Low in caffeine content, the dark roast is smooth, robust, and definitely will help you wake up in the morning.
We enjoyed the sachets because they’re compact, yet packed to the brim with coffee. These are perfect to take with you on the road or your next camping adventure. In addition to the sachets, Purity Coffee also sends you a small, simple paper with a few quick directions on how to brew them.
As you steep, one of the first things that you’ll notice is the smokey, earthy aroma. It has an earthy, nutty taste and is full-bodied with a low amount of acidity. It goes down smoothly with every sip, and it’s great for those who have sensitive stomachs.
Purity Coffee is some of the best on the market for many reasons. We enjoy it because they go above and beyond to ensure the overall quality of their product and the satisfaction of their customers. Here are a few other great things that we enjoy as well:
The Health Benefits
There’s no denial that health-wise, Purity Coffee is serious about making sure their coffee is some of the best that money can buy. It’s packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that promote the overall health of the consumer. Also, the coffee is certified organic specialty grade coffee, which is a pretty noteworthy characteristic. This fact is impressive because this standard is met by less than 1% of all coffee produced worldwide.
Instead of just guesstimating with their coffee, Purity Coffee takes the health of their coffee seriously by lab-testing each batch before shipping it to consumers. They test for things like mold, mycotoxins, and bean defects, all while making sure that each batch has a high amount of antioxidants. Through their continuous testing, Purity Coffee has discovered that their coffee was found to be 65% higher in antioxidants on average than other big leading coffee brands.
Purity Coffee goes above and beyond to protect the environment and farmland where the beans are cultivated. They are conscious about not overbuying their coffee, that way they can prevent unused beans from going stale and going to waste.
In addition to this, they also utilize forestry practices that preserve the quality of the soil and the environment as a whole remains healthy. And when it comes to the bags that the coffee is packaged in, Purity Coffee uses as much repurposed and sustainable material as possible.
Healthy Farmer Relationships
All of the coffee that you could consume from Purity Coffee has been cultivated on farms that are familiar to workers of the Purity Coffee company. As a result of the strong relationships between the farmers and Purity Coffee, you can rest assured that your beans are carefully monitored and properly cared for from bean to cup.
It can be difficult to receive coffee through the mail, especially when you have to worry about how it can impact the overall quality of your coffee. Thankfully, Purity Coffee helps out by eliminating the extra stress of shipping fees! If you live in the United States, then you can receive free shipping on your coffee orders, whether it’s a one time purchase or a small monthly subscription.
Alas, not everything can be perfect. The great thing though is that there are always ways to improve and make a product better. We’re super impressed with the research and quality that Purity Coffee brings to the table, but there are always ways to improve.
No Exquisite Flavor
One thing that we noticed about Purity Coffee is that even though this coffee has many health benefits, there isn’t much room for authentic, unique flavor profiles. Even looking on the company’s website, the descriptions of each roast only gives an idea of the kind of roast that the coffee is (medium, dark, decaf, etc), and doesn’t elaborate on the notes of flavor in the coffee itself.
As a result, there’s no specific description of the flavors that separate each roast from each other. Instead of tasting the coffee and pinpointing certain notes of flavor highlighted in each roast, all you have to do is sip each roast to realize that the coffee itself just tastes “good” and that’s just about it.
Though we agree that the health benefits to Purity Coffee are there, any vibrant or robust flavors can be difficult to taste. However, if you’re primarily concerned with boosting up your overall quality of health, then this shouldn’t be too much of a deal-breaker.
Only Whole Beans
If you’re wanting to purchase some Purity Coffee, then you’ll need a grinder of some sort to brew your beans. We always suggest buying whole bean coffee and grinding it right before brewing because this is the best way to ensure the overall freshness of your coffee. However, this may be difficult for those who may not have access to a grinder.
If you’re looking to improve your overall health, then Purity Coffee is a great way to promote your overall health and wellness. With the amount of care that they put into every batch of coffee they create, you can rest assured that your coffee is quality in freshness and flavor.
Also, the subscription services also provide a great option for those who need coffee delivered to them, or if you need a gift to give to your hard-to-shop-for, health-nut friends. So have fun exploring Purity Coffee, and as always:
