Is Coffee Vegan?
For so many of us, coffee plays a big part in our daily lives, but is it vegan?
From a crack-of-dawn coffee to start the day on the right foot to a sociable latte with friends, coffee is a common thread through so many of our lives. We’re going to dispel the myth and see whether it’s suitable for vegans.
Coffee is a colloquial name given many hot drinks that have a base made from coffee beans, the seeds of the coffee trees; native to tropical and southern Africa and tropical Asia, they are now grown all over the world. Be it in the form of espresso or cappuccino, coffee is all around us.
Is coffee vegan?
Yes, coffee beans are completely vegan-friendly because they’re grown on trees. There may be trickier questions to answer around how ethical some coffee is, but that doesn’t stop it being suitable for vegans.
However, when we talk about coffee drinks, not all of them are vegan because so many of them use dairy-based milk as key ingredients. If you’re ordering a latte at a cafe, or even making one at home, opting for plant-based milk will make your frothy coffee vegan too.
