I was interested to find out what are some of the best mycotoxin tested coffees for me to review.
Many people in the health conscious, biohacking community want to only drink coffee that has been tested to have low, to no levels of mycotoxins, mold fungus, yeast, pesticides and any other ingredients that might negatively affect their health.
So, I went out researching online for what are some of the top rated & most recommended brands on the market who sell mold free coffee products that are available to buy online.
The following list of recommended coffee beans will help you see which brands can sell you a bag of these specially tested coffee beans to try out for yourself.
The Best Mold Free Coffee Brands in 2023
Here is the list of mold tested coffees on the market we reviewed for you to compare.
1. Purity Coffee
Purity Coffee is the most trusted organic coffee brand that is the origin of some of the other mycotoxin-free coffees in this list.
Going directly to Purity Coffee you will get a bigger selection of pesticide-free, mold tested coffee products, like the coffee pods for coffee machines along with the different roast options.
Purity did some testing against some other big coffee brands names, which is interesting to read on their website.
Purity Coffee also link to their certificate of analysis as proof of their mycotoxin testing.
2. Spirit Animal Coffee
Spirit Animal Coffee is a new coffee brand that I came across who tests their organic coffee beans for mold. All of their coffee is sourced from different high altitude coffee farms in Honduras. What also makes them different is that the coffee beans are roasted fresh in Honduras to order and shipped by air cargo to their destination.
You will find the certificate of analysis for mycotoxins that they test for each new harvest on all coffee product pages. Spirit Animal Coffee also test for pesticide levels making them also a good non-toxic coffee brand to choose.
Spirit Animal are also the only brand reviewed who are specialty coffee certified, meaning they’re graded 80 or above up to score of 100 by a licensed Q Grader. You will also see on each organic mold free coffee bean product page their speciality coffee score.
I like brands who give back & from what I’m seeing they are passionate to help micro-lot coffee farmers.
3. Natural Force Clean Coffee
Natural Force Clean Coffee is the only US coffee brand I found that publicly shares the lab result of their mycotoxin tested coffee.
Natural Force are one of the only USA mold free coffee brand suppliers reviewed that has a public link to their mycotoxin lab test certificate. Natural Force source their beans from Purity Coffee, but do additional testing.
There is no ground coffee or blend option, so you are limited for different taste options. They do also say the roasting process is carefully done to minimize acrylamide formation.
4. Bulletproof Coffee Beans
The brand has the most coffee variety options available to buy.
You can get different roast profiles and package sizing.
The company uses the Bulletproof Process to assure quality control from farm to cup. Unfortunately there is no public mycotoxin lab test certificate publicly available to view.
5. Lifeboost Coffee
Lifeboost coffee is a USDA organic certified coffee that is sent off to a 3rd party for mycotoxin testing.
Unfortunately there is no public link showing the 3rd party test results.
If you are looking for a flavored coffee option then Lifeboost is your best option.
I like that Lifeboost say that they roast their coffee to order to prevent stale coffee.
They say they also donate a portion of profits from each bag of coffee sold to the RainforestTrust.org.
6. Kion Coffee
Kion coffee is the brand of famous health podcaster, Ben Greenfield.
The coffee beans are sourced from Purity coffee who do all the mold and pesticide testing.
You would need to buy from Purity to get decaf, 5lbs bags or coffee pods.
They have a public page for what they test, which seems to be the most of any brand.
They also compare themselves vs other coffee brands who aren’t named. Unfortunately there is no public mycotoxin lab test certificate available.
7. Peak Performance Coffee
Peak Performance Coffee is an organic coffee that they say is tested twice for mold contamination.
First test is done by the green coffee bean importers they use then again by Peak Performance when they get delivery.
Reading the reviews online people love the taste of their coffee.
Unfortunately there is no public mycotoxin lab test certificate available.
8. Mindful Coffee
Mindful Coffee is a coffee roaster based out of London, UK.
Mindful Coffee is a good option for anyone looking for mold free coffee available in the UK.
They display the roasted on date on their coffee to know how fresh the coffee is.
There is a public lab test (certificate of analysis) available on the homepage of their website showing no Aflatoxin or Ochratoxin A detected.
9. NoordCode Pure Coffee
NoordCode Pure Coffee is a European brand based in The Netherlands. The brand is a good mold tested coffee brand option for people looking for quick shipping to any EU country.
NoordCode say that both their light and medium roast coffee beans have been tested for aflatoxins and moulds, but there is no direct link to view the lab testing certificate from the website.
What makes this brand unique is that the coffee uses Ethiopia style fermentation and is also sealed in a tin vs a bag.
NoordCode Pure Coffee had their coffee tested for mold and bacteria as part of a research project for the Dutch University of Wageningen.
10. Byron Bay Coffee Company
Byron Bay Coffee Company is an Australian brand that sells a wide variety of coffee, but it is only the Organic Espresso option that they sell that looks to be tested for mycotoxins.
They state on their website that they test for mycotoxins and moulds, but we couldn’t find a direct link to the lab results to verify.
This looks to be a good option to try if you live in Australia and are looking for a mould free coffee option local to you.
