A counterfeit Joe

A good old-fashioned cup of coffee is becoming harder and harder to find and most people don’t even know it! Unscrupulous coffee producers cut their coffee goods with – well, stuff – to fool the consumer and increase profits of course. Coffee harvests have been hurt by droughts and crop diseases, driving up prices and bringing surprise ingredients hiding in coffee because of this increasing coffee shortages. “Fillers” sometimes used range from bark to dirt, GMO corn and soybeans, glutenous barley and wheat, soybeans, rice, beans, acai seed, brown sugar and starch syrup. Once these non-coffee bean items are roasted and ground along with the coffee bean it becomes nearly impossible to tell that they are there without a science lab. What’s worse, a recent study predicts that 70% percent of the world’s coffee supply could falter by 2080. This year alone, Brazil’s coffee production has dropped by over 10%. Me? I buy whole organic beans and grind them myself.

I wonder if his name is Joe?
