Coffee Talk with Vickie and Larissa

This episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast is all about coffee. You’ll learn about some of the purported benefits of this magic brown liquid, as well as some things to look out for.  We’ll also discuss the importance of buying organic, fair-trade coffee.


After doing the research for this episode we checked the coffee we drink at home and realized it wasn’t organic.  A quick search and a little reading about the brand and its owner, Rogers Family Co. Coffee & Tea, led us to realize that they are a good company that practices responsible, sustainable farming.  They have community aid programs in place in the countries where their coffee beans are grown.


Best of all, they have multiple varieties of coffee that are organic!  I chatted with a customer service rep online and later received an email from her stating that one of the owners, Jim Rogers, would like to speak to me personally.  We had a very nice phone conversation.   I ordered their San Francisco Bay Organic Rainforest Blendir?t=vegezen 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00HURFGBO for our Keurigir?t=vegezen 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00RD82ZW8.

Quotes of the Week

We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.
