About the author:
Joe Urbach is a lover of Coffee! He is tired of his favorite morning eye-opener always being concidered a "bad habit"! As the creator/publisher of www.GardeningAustin.com and the wildly popular Phytonutrient Blog, Joe knows that in moderation coffee is an incredibly healthy and nutritious elixir! He was 'driven' to write this book just to 'set the record straight!'
Author Joe Urbach, has lived and worked in the Central Texas area for over 30 years. He and his wife Holly are the parents of five children and grandparents of two beautiful boys.
Joe is the creator/publisher of GardeningAustin.com and the wildly popular Phytonutrient Blog. (www.GardeningAustin.com/blog)
For the last twelve years he has concentrated his efforts on installing many raised bed and container gardens in Texas homes all over Austin and San Antonio.
As a gardener, as a father and as a grandfather Joe is very concerned about the quality of the food that ends up on all of our dining tables and really loves being able to help people get their own Raised Bed Phytonutrient Gardens started.
Joe is a certified Texas Master Gardener and is currently serving as the Director of Training for the Hays County Chapter of the Texas Master Gardener Association. He teaches and lectures on gardening regularly and can often be found speaking at local nurseries, libraries, garden Clubs, Extension offices, or on radio and podcasts.
While still very much the advocate for a "kitchen garden in every home" Joe now finds that his focus is set on changing the way we all think about our food - be it from our kitchen gardens, farmers' markets or the local supermarkets.
Joe developed the concept of being a Phytonutrient Gardener which simply means, "if you are growing a vegetable in your garden why not grow the variety that packs the biggest nutritional value!?"
Joe has recently launched an online business offering 100% Organic, NON-GMO, hand-harvested and hand packed seeds for many of the phytonutrient-rich varieties he recommends in his books and lectures. Check it out at www.PhytonutrientFarms.com.
Joe has become a phytonutrient gardener and wants us all to come along for the journey to a better, healthier, longer and much more active and productive life!
Let's get Coffee
The History & Health Benefits of Coffee
Author Joe Urbach, is a lover of Coffee!
He is tired of his favorite morning eye-opener always being considered a "bad habit!"
As Joe points out, he has been told, "Coffee will stunt your growth." for as long as he can remember. Well it is time he called BS on that old myth.
As the creator/publisher of GardeningAustin.com and the wildly popular Phytonutrient Blog, Joe knows that coffee is an incredibly healthy and nutritious elixir! He was 'driven' to write this book just to 'set the record straight!'
This book covers the history of the discovery of coffee up through its arrival in the 21st Century. He talks about how coffee grew in popularity, how it spread to be enjoyed the world over, how coffee went to war and how it can bring you many, many health benefits with every sip you take.
"Let us raise our demitasse cups, our favorite old mugs, and our commuter cups to toast the thieves and smugglers to whom we truly owe our gratitude.
These unsung and unsavory heroes set forth the proliferation of coffee throughout the world leading to the variety of coffees we cherish today.
Let us thank those who, through the centuries toiled, battled, tinkered and seduced, all for that delectable cup of coffee!
And for all of those who brought us to this wonderful place in coffee history, or for all of us who just enjoy our morning cup of java, this book is for you!"
