Is Coffee Vegan?

Answer: yes

Coffee is created by harvesting a fruit and then roasting, grinding and adding water to the seed. No animal products are used to create black coffee. Of course, many coffee additions are not vegan, like cream and milk. For those that prefer an organic, fair trade variety, you can’t really go wrong with Equal Exchange Organic Coffee. As always, make sure to support your local roaster and coffee shop.

Make sure to avoid Kopi Luwak, however. The process of harvesting the fruit is often cruel to palm civit cats and unnecessary. Some sellers claim “wild civits” or “wild collected” but I’m suspicious.
