"It was refined and delicious, not too dark but bold enough to satisfy my taste in coffee. I'm a two- (lately three-) cup-a-day person, but I was satisfied with only one twelve-ounce cup. I felt restored and elevated enough to start my work day; my body and mind were in a rich state of homeostasis." - Chloe Sommers
The Pleasures and Benefits of a Great Cup of Coffee
Reaching for that first cup of coffee in the morning is a ritual favored by many. Even those who skip breakfast are often eager to enjoy that first jolt of caffeine. Like many foods and beverages, coffee went through its period of being demonized as detrimental to a person's health a couple of decades ago. But, that concern is long gone now. Science has given coffee a whole new image. Coffee, in addition to being the first delightful taste of the morning, brings with it a host of mental and physical health benefits. So, the next time you pour yourself a cup, enjoy how good it tastes and remember how good it is for you.
Are coffee drinkers healthier?
In June 2017, two studies using big data revealed that coffee drinkers have a significantly lower chance of suffering from a number of serious illnesses than non-coffee drinkers. The first study carried by the UK's Imperial College in association with a number of other European medical institutions examined over half a million people in ten European countries. It is the largest investigation ever undertaken into the connection between coffee and mortality. The researchers found that coffee drinkers had significantly lower incidents of liver, digestive, and circulatory diseases, as well as male suicide, and cancer in women.
Let Freshly Roasted Coffee Bloom
Freshly roasted coffee contains many aromatics and gasses that add to its aroma and flavor. They also, however, have a lot of carbon dioxide, which produces a sour taste. Letting coffee bloom gives this carbon dioxide time to escape so that it doesn't interfere with your brew's taste.
