Let’s start by looking at the beans.

The difference between coffee bean varieties

The main two coffee bean varieties are Arabica and Robusta. Robusta is the stronger bean for caffeine levels.

However, the way the bean is roasted and the final colour of the ground coffee after roasting is what is most important for coffee enemas.

We will use an image below to help demonstrate in a clear visual the differences in colour between various roasting strengths.

The main 4 different Coffee Enema roast colours

The 4 different coffee roast strengths are as follows:

Dark, Medium, Medium and Light (Blend), Light.

(It is possible to get an Extra Light Coffee Enema Roast, but we felt that the caffeine level in the extra light was too strong. We will only produce this for customers if they need the absolute highest level of caffeine and palmitic acid. If this is you, please email us).

The level of caffeine and palmitic acid in the coffee enema grinds

We will simplify this by just using weakest to strongest.

  • Dark – Weakest strength
  • Medium – Mid strength
  • Medium and Light Blend – Mid to Strong
  • Light Roast – Strongest
  • (Extra Light – Extremely Strong) (Not recommended)

Organic Fairtrade Air Roasted Coffee – Single-origin and single bean type

When it comes to choosing the best coffee enema grinds it is necessary to use beans/grinds that follow these guidelines –

  • Organic Beans (Clean Beans)
  • Ethically sourced beans (Clean conscience)
  • Air Roasted (Non-carcinogenic)
  • Single-origin (Ensures quality and strength)
  • Non-blended bean types (Don’t mix Arabica and Robusta)

As the purpose of performing coffee enemas is to cleanse the body, it is necessary to use beans and roasting methods that aid the cleansing process. By following the above guidelines, you will not add more congestion and pollutants to your body.

Caffeine and Palmitic acid

Caffeine

All coffee beans have caffeine. The roasting process dictates the caffeine level. 

Raw coffee beans are green. As we roast the beans, they change colour beginning with a light golden shade, then turning to a medium brown, ending as a dark almost black colour.

The lighter the roasted bean colour, the stronger the caffeine present.

Palmitic Acid

Coffee beans have a wide variety of naturally occurring fatty acids present within them. Palmitic acid is one of them. Palmitic acid is essential in the coffee enema cleansing process.

The lighter the bean roast, the higher the palmitic acid content, this is because it hasn’t been burnt away and dried out.

Gerson and Coffee enemas

Dr Max Gerson originally conceived and studied the process of coffee enemas and their benefits on the body. The Gerson institute continues his excellent work to this day, helping people through correct diet, healthy habits and of course coffee enemas.

The Gerson institute originally suggested using a Medium Roast coffee. We also follow this suggestion. However, over the years, we have had substantial advances in coffee bean roasting technology.

For example – Air Roasting, allows us to produce a cleaner roasted bean. It also enables us to roast the beans to set temperatures and exact times. We can manufacture a near-identical roast each time for all strengths from Medium through to Extra Light, allowing you to find your CONTROL.

What is CONTROL

Testing strengths and your CONTROL

  • Technical Jargon
  • (scientific control is an experiment or observation designed to minimize the effects of variables other than the independent variable. This increases the reliability of the results, often through a comparison between control measurements and the other measurements)

In simple terms, this means the first time you perform a coffee enema; you will have a control experience. Repeat this with the same strength coffee for several days. If the sensations are the same, you have your control. Then by adjusting the coffee strengths to weaker or stronger, you can easily gauge the change of reactions your body has with different caffeine strengths.

  • That is why we suggest starting with a MID strength roast to study and discover your control.

What to expect after performing your coffee enema

  • Too weak
  • There will be little to no sensation apart from a cleaner lower colon.
  • Too Strong
  • There can be a sense of bloatedness, slight nausea (a bit like your first cigarette as a young teen). Tension in the head and a racing pulse.
  • Perfect Strength
  • When a coffee enema is performed correctly with the right strength, your colon will feel empty. You will feel bright, alert, happy, light in body and mind. Focused and excited for the day.

Too many people suggest a LIGHT roast

Unfortunately, there are too many articles on the internet praising Light roasts as the only way to go. Many of these people writing the posts have never even done a coffee enema.

It simply isn’t true that Light roasts are the best. Everybody is unique, and their bodies will react differently to each coffee strength. The same way an anesthesiologist before giving you pre-operation drugs to knock you out takes your age, weight, sex etc into consideration.

For some people the dark roast is enough, for others the Light Golden Roast is perfect.

It is vitally important to find the right strength for your body and ignore what is written on the net pointing to only the Light strong roast.

In conclusion

  • If you are very sensitive to caffeine, use a good quality organic supermarket dark roast.

  • For 95% of people, who are quite tolerant of caffeine, your liver and gallbladder will need more of a boost to begin the cleansing process. Therefore we suggest starting with the Medium, air roasted, Coffee Enema Grind specially designed for coffee enemas. You will have the smoothest experience and will also have a control standard to gauge your reaction to the caffeine and palmitic acid.
