Shoutout to this week's podcast sponsor, Exhale coffee! Exhale coffee is the first speciality coffee In the UK to be sourced and roasted especially for health

Their independent tests show 1 cup of exhale healthy coffee tested to have the antioxidant power of 12 punnets of blueberries, 55 oranges or 1.2kg of kale! Plus, their unique process is designed to lock in the natural plant chemicals and involves 9 different tests at Independent laboratories across Europe - All overseen by our In-house team of experts.

Exhale has found a coffee that tested 40% higher in polyphenols (plant-based phytochemicals, specifically chlorogenic acid) than any other in an online list of 45; is one of the richest sources of niacin in our diets and is free from any nasties including mycotoxins, pesticides, toxins and heavy metals.

Additional info:

  • Their decaf is the same coffee as the regular but it’s been decaffeinated using the chemical free ‘Mountain Water Process’ which uses only the purest spring water from the highest mountain in Mexico.
  • There’s a huge variability in the concentrations of some of the healthiest compounds in coffees. Studies show a 31 fold difference between the highest and lowest.
  • It also tastes delicious! Side by side It tastes as good as any other speciality grade coffee.
  • The magic Is In the sourcing and roasting to retain more of, and bring out more of coffee's health
