Is coffee healthy for you?
There are a lot of controversial articles on the internet.. “11 reasons why you should drink coffee everyday” or “latest study.. coffee s bad for your health”.. which one should you believe?
It’s a matter of fact, that studies are controversial, as the people are that are being tested in the study.
First of all you should listen to your body. Are you a naturally nervous person with high blood pressure or rather someone who is always cold and has low blood pressure? Do you need the extra kick right now, maybe for work or sport or is it better to chill on the sofa? What happens if you drink a double espresso -is your heart racing or does nothing happen?
Listen to your body – I get super nervous with a racing heart after 2 coffees in a row and I am a regular drinker and in the coffee business, but I need one in the morning, because my blood pressure is low and it is difficult to start otherwise.
Whatever your body tells you, it is most important to drink the highest quality of coffee. Perfectly freshly roasted coffee. Not burnt. No spanish style, no french style. Just a few minutes too long in the roaster and the best coffee is burnt, tastes bad and causes cancer. The industrial coffees in Spain are all burnt. They are roasted in industrial roasters half the time they usually need and are roasted too long. You can taste it in every coffee bar. Burnt, bitter and undrinkable on its own. People think this is necessary, “strong” coffee, more kick. Not true. Coffee doesn’t get more caffeine just because it tastes bad. Yes, Robusta coffee is cheap, has more caffeine and is often used in industrial blends, so here you get more caffeine the nastier it gets. But.. rather search the good taste, it exists, and then have a double shot. Once you have tasted the sweetness of a coffee without sugar, you will never look back.
