It may seem like a silly question to ask if coffee is vegan, but the vegan suitability of coffee can be a little tricky.
The short answer is yes. Coffee is vegan because it is made from coffee beans.
However, while standard black coffee is vegan, coffee is often made with milk, which is not vegan. Unless, of course, it’s plant-based milk!
You may also want to consider that even if all the ingredients in your coffee are vegan, the way some coffee beans are grown and processed does not fit with the vegan philosophy of supporting the environment. So vegans may want to be extra careful when choosing their coffee, looking for ethical coffee brands where they can.
