Brewing Perfection: Unveiling the Secrets of Mould and Mycotoxin-Free Coffee in Our Southern Cross Blend


Coffee lovers worldwide rely on their morning cup of java to kickstart their day. It’s the aroma, the taste, and the unmistakable energy boost that make it a beloved beverage. However, have you ever stopped to consider what goes on behind the scenes? Coffee production is an intricate process with various factors influencing its quality, including the potential presence of mould and mycotoxins. In this blog, we’ll delve into the world of mould and mycotoxins in coffee and proudly introduce our Southern Cross Blend, which undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it’s free from these contaminants.

Understanding Mould and Mycotoxins:

Mould is a type of fungus that thrives in warm and humid environments. Coffee, being a tropical plant, is susceptible to mould growth during various stages of production, especially during harvesting, processing, and storage. Mould contamination can occur when coffee cherries are left to ferment in moist conditions or when improperly dried beans are stored.

Unfortunately, mould growth can lead to the development of mycotoxins, which are toxic compounds produced by certain types of mould. Mycotoxins pose potential health risks when consumed in high quantities and can have detrimental effects on human health, including liver damage, immune system suppression, and even carcinogenic properties.

Mould and Mycotoxin Testing in the Coffee Industry:

As awareness of the potential health risks associated with mould and mycotoxins in coffee has grown, some companies in the coffee industry have taken significant steps to ensure consumer safety. Rigorous testing protocols have been implemented to identify and mitigate any potential contamination risks.

At Cooee Coffee Co, we understand the importance of delivering exceptional quality to our customers. That’s why we have established stringent testing procedures to ensure that our Southern Cross Blend is free from mould and mycotoxins.
