We are excited to announce that in February we will be launching our Moringa Morning Blend Coffee as part of our new line of Moringa-infused products.
Moringa Morning Blend is a blend of our most popular coffee: Mexico Altura with Moringa. This coffee provides a double portion of the antioxidants found in both coffee and moringa, as well as numerous other health benefits.
Mexico Altura is grown at Santa Rosa Farms in Chiapas, Mexico. The state of Chiapas is located in the south of Mexico near the border of Mexico and Guatemala. It is one of three main coffee-growing regions in southern Mexico, along with Veracruz and Oaxaca. Mexican Coffee was first cultivated in the state of Veracruz in the late 18th century, and during the 19th-century coffee production spread to Chiapas and Oaxaca. Today the coffee industry in southern Mexico employs about 2 million people and contributes significantly to Mexico’s overall economy.
Health Benefits of Moringa
Moringa has been called the “miracle tree” and the “tree of life” because of its well-known health benefits and the fact that it has been used in homeopathic medicine for centuries. It is a green leaf found in tropical climates in India, Asia, and Africa.
The website pharmeasy.com has a summary of 16 health benefits from moringa leaves: https://pharmeasy.in/blog/16-health-benefits-of-moringa-leaves/
Here are some of them:
- Rich in Vitamins and Minerals
- Rich in Amino Acids
- Fight Inflammation
- Rich in Antioxidants
- Lower Blood Sugar Levels
- Lowers Cholesterol
The elevation of the Sierra Madre Mountain range and the hot, tropical climate of southern Mexico create an ideal growing environment for coffee. The rich volcanic soil of the mountains gives Mexican coffee a low acidity, which is unique among most Latin American coffees. Mexican coffees generally feature notes of chocolate and nuts with a subtle body along with their low acidity.
Som’s Café’s Mexico Altura features notes of dark chocolate with a red cherry underpinning and has become our best-selling coffee.
Moringa Morning Blend is a blend of Moringa with Mexico Altura. This blend results in the addition of a slightly grassy note to our Mexico Altura that is not overpowering and does not compromise the natural flavor profile of the Mexico Altura. This makes Moringa Morning Blend a perfect choice for lovers of Mexico Altura that want to add some additional health benefits to their morning coffee.
