Updated: Mar 19

For a while now we have been interested in the health and in particular the impact of heavy metals on our wellness. Heavy metals have been linked to many illnesses (1) such as e.g., obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

Many of you know the link between aluminium and Alzhemiers but once aluminium is in the body, what can we do about it? The World Health Organisation

WHO says Heavy Metals are causing chronic poor health

The World Health Organisation released a paper (1) saying that they think that the chronic health in the world today can't be blamed only on lifestyle and genetics and the paper summarises what can be done about it.

In the following 59 page report, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says the 80,000 chemicals have been created over the last few decades and only a small percentage have been checked. And of those that have, they are the studies are paid for by the manufacturer. (2)

What to do?

In summary, the WHO says do the following:

1. Limit exposure to heavy metals by buying well and eating well.

2. Support your body to detox by eating foods that help it remove heavy metals.

3. Use directed heavy metal removal progams.

What do Café Nate do to help?

We are not medical professionals and don't claim to provide medical advice. However, we're committed to supporting people in making healthy choices without hide menu.

What do our best to limit the amount of heavy metals that cause illness in what we serve:

1. Purified Water

All our water is purified via Reverse Osmosis which removes chemicals used in the chlorination process which have known cancer causing properties (see Sydney Water reports and look for NDMA and how often they test...).

So our coffee, tea and table water have all gone reverse osmosis. If you drink filtered water everywhere else, why not in your coffee and tea?

2. Food made in house to limit preservatives, plastics and additives

We make our sauces so that no nasties are added.

Our eggs, chicken and beef are free range to reduce chemicals and increase omega 3 content.

Many of our dishes are able to be the following: gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan. So if you need or want to avoid different types of foods, we do our best to support you.

3. Our food is healthy

We use mostly fresh fruit and vegetables in our food and limit the amount of additives by making our most of food in house and limiting the use of bought products with preservatives.

4. Juices and Smoothies

Our juice is cold pressed on order, so can't be fresher. Our smoothies have tasty combinations which also support health.

We are also designing new smoothies and juices to help with the removal of heavy metals...

  • What is the original coffee method?
    The original method of brewing coffee dates back to ancient times when coffee was prepared in the simplest manner possible. Initially, coffee beans were perfectly roasted, releasing their distinctive aromatic oils and flavours. Following roasting, the beans were finely ground into a powder. Subsequently, this ground coffee was steeped in hot water, allowing the rich flavours and essence of the coffee to permeate. Through this method, coffee was brewed to yield a strong and flavorful concoction. Over time, this traditional brewing approach has evolved and adapted to various techniques and innovations.
  • What is the simplest coffee method?
    The simplest method of brewing coffee requires minimal equipment and uncomplicated steps. It is accessible to anyone seeking a quick and easy way to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee. This method typically involves steeping coffee grounds in hot water. Alternatively, coffee can be brewed by pouring hot water over the grounds in a filter or cloth bag. In both cases, the flavours are extracted as the coffee infuses into the water before being served and enjoyed. Using basic brewing equipment like a French press can simplify the process while yielding excellent results.
  • Is coffee an infusion or decoction?
    Depending on the brewing technique, coffee can be categorized as an infusion or a decoction. When hot water is poured over coffee grounds, allowing the flavours and essence of the coffee to dissolve and infuse into the water, it is considered an infusion. This method is standard in drip brewing, pour-over, and French press techniques, where water passes through the coffee grounds, extracting their flavours. Conversely, a decoction involves boiling coffee grounds directly in water, resulting in a more concentrated and intense brew. Traditional Turkish coffee and certain espresso brewing methods often utilize decoction. Each method offers a unique flavour profile and brewing experience, contributing to coffee's versatility and appeal.
