It’s no wonder that coffee has a lot of health benefits that is why some studies recommend that coffee is the ultimate superfood, Coffee repairs DNA, calms the body, helps prevent cancer, Type 2 diabetes, and Parkinson’s disease. Because of these people who drink coffee has a healthier life especially when you drink coffee in moderation, and at the right time of the day.

A pair of scientific studies conducted at the University of California and the University of Ohio has identified an additional benefit to drinking coffee. According to the Journal of Psychopharmacology:

consuming a moderate amount of caffeinated coffee prior to indulging in a group activity enhances an individual’s task-relevant participation in the group activity.

This study shows to everyone who works in the office or any in the business environment where teamwork–and the ability to keep meetings on target–is crucial to success. The study also points out the relevance of coffee during a meeting, where almost everyone shows up with a fresh cup of coffee, this shows coffee can help individuals keep focused and on target.

If you notice people who conduct meetings at the coffee shops are much focus, alert, and creative than people who, conduct meetings in the office this shows that coffee is a good stimulator that alerts the brain and keeps the body stay up and focus.

Some people don’t need coffee to stay focused, but if you are the type of person who easily gets bored and quickly distracted, a strong cup of java at the beginning of a meeting is an indispensable part of our productivity toolkit.

The difference of iced coffee, cold brew, and nitro coffee

0

Since the discovery of iced coffee this had become a big hit in the coffee industry over the years, and nowadays iced coffee is one of the favorites by coffee lovers all year round. Cold brew coffee made its name in the coffee industry, amidst the increase of methods on how to make iced coffee, it takes an in-depth knowledge to fully understand all the technique of this well, love beverage.

Making iced coffee is not just putting ice in your coffee, but making iced coffee has three different methods, that also have a different price, taste, and texture.

Let’s look at the different types and ways in making iced coffee.

Iced Coffee

iced coffee

Iced coffee is the most popular type of cold brew, a classic, reliable, and famously over-iced summer time on-the-go.

How it’s made:

Well, iced coffee is pretty much your average joe. It’s brewed hot like your regular cup but at double strength, so when it’s poured over (and melts) a pitcher of ice, it won’t be too watery.

How it tastes:

If you get used to drinking black coffee, then the taste of this is not surprising. Though the kick of this coffee is the added ice that made its texture light, refreshing, and a little more acidic.

What makes its extra penny?

Iced coffee costs more than the hot stuff because of the extra materials involved—like straws, ice (not to mention the ice machine required), and plastic cups, which can cost up to two times the price of their paper counterparts. It’s typically the cheapest of all the iced varieties, however, because the process of making it isn’t time-consuming.

The best way to drink is:

You can drink this coffee with no added sweeteners, but if you want to add something fun to lessen a bit its acidity, you can add dairy or nondairy creamers.

Cold Brew

steep cold brew

Cold brew is different from Iced coffee though both of them are chilled but, the process of making is different. It’s believed that the cold brew had first emerged in the early 17th century, but it was not popular during that time since the hot coffee is the king of all cups during those days. Only after ten years where cold brew has made its name in households and finding its way into grocery stores, restaurants, and any coffee shops.

How it’s made:

Cold brew doesn’t require ice, but making a cold brew coffee is a process of steeping the beans in cool water at room temperature within 12 to 24 hours to slowly become its best taste. After 24hrs of waiting, you can now finally strained out the coffee and served chilled.

How it tastes:

Hot-brewed coffee is bitter in taste and more acidic, but the cold brew is made with cold water that is why the taste is slightly sweeter, a bit milder, and way less acidic than your average iced joe. Though the aroma and flavor will be less intense, they won’t change dramatically over time like hot coffee. So you can drink it the next day, and the next day, and it will taste just as fresh.

What you’re paying for?

We’ve all wondered why cold brew cashes out anywhere from 50 cents to a dollar more than regular iced coffee this is because the process of making is more complicated than making a regular iced coffee, and it requires more time to get the perfect brew. Not only does the process take way longer, but cold brew also requires about twice the amount of coffee grounds as its more traditional counterpart.

The best way to drink is:

Cold brew is best to drink itself without adding creamer or sweetener to enjoy its goodness.

Nitro Brew

Nitro brew coffee

Nitro brew is a bubblier cold brew that comes from a keg. It grew in popularity when Starbucks rolled out its own variety a few years ago, delighting those who had always secretly wished coffee was just beer.

How it’s made:

The coffee is typically first made using the cold brew process, then poured into a keg. It’s then infused with tiny nitrogen bubbles and routed through a pressurized valve to create the “on tap” situation that looks (and tastes) undeniably cooler than any Keurig.

How it tastes:

The biggest difference between nitro brew and a cold brew is the texture. While both of these iced options are subtle and sweet in flavor, a nitrogen cold brew delivers a super-smooth, rich body with a foamy top similar to your favorite draught beer.

What you’re paying for?

It’s no surprise that Nitro brew is the most expensive because the nitrogen infusion, and the costly equipment needed to make it, this drink might cost you as much as a small meal.

The best way to drink is:

You want something frothy, but you’re trying to avoid creamers or sweeteners. Oh, and you don’t mind paying top dollar for top taste.

Why children drink coffee these days?

0
kida, teens, coffee drinking habits. What parents needs to know

With today’s coffee generation we can’t deny the fact that the coffee companies today did a complex migration with their audiences. targeting the children and teens or millennial generations as the primary target audiences.

Seems, coffee drinking these days are becoming unfiltered where young people are dominating the adults, and at a very young age, they already started to drink coffee. Health experts generally aren’t happy about young people drinking more coffee, or any caffeinated beverage. The American Academy of Pediatrics says “caffeine and other stimulant substances contained in energy drinks have no place in the diet of children and adolescents.”

According to Alicia Diaz, age 2 she was sitting on her dad’s lap and stealing sips of his café Cubano. And she also remembers one time on the way to her school they stopped to get a cafe latte and split a bagel with her dad.

“When I was younger, I had a little bit of trouble falling asleep,” said Diaz, now 20. “I would never nap in kindergarten. But I never thought of this as unusual at the time.”

In a 2011 clinical guidance to pediatricians, the academy noted caffeine’s effects on anxiety, attentiveness, mood, motor activity and sleep as well as “various organ systems.”

“Most of us are drinking coffee, and younger consumers appear to be leading the charge,” said Bill Murray, National Coffee Association president, in a March 2017 press release.

In a coffee industry trade publication titled “Coffee Through the Ages,” the NCA reported “the most robust increase in coffee consumption among those 13-18.” In three years, the number of teens drinking coffee rose by 14 percent. Today, nearly four in 10 American teens drink coffee, according to the NCA’s research.

The growing number of children and teens these days drinking coffee are alarming even in some schools are selling coffee to students with in-school coffee shops, or vending machines.

Jack Bowland a student at Central Bucks High School West in Doylestown Borough always drink coffee before his most difficult classes, he said, “I am 16 years old, and I started drinking coffee at the beginning of this school year when I was 15,” he said. “I don’t currently have a set routine, but I drank coffee every morning back when I had more difficult classes.”

Jack’s mom said he drinks three to five “large cups” of coffee during weeks when he’s pushed to the limit.

“Jack will drink coffee when studying late or in the morning if he hasn’t had much sleep,” said mom Caroline Heise. “I use it as a method to stay awake to study and finish homework,” Jack said. “But I know it’s an unhealthy habit.”

In 2017, Central Bucks South in Warrington opened the Coffee Connection, a student-run coffee shop, which sells hot and iced coffee, hot chocolate, iced tea, lemonade and Arnold Palmers.

Another student from a different school at Council Rock High School South Dylan Nitka shares her reasons why she drank coffee at a young age, she said, she needs her first cup of coffee to wake up for school at 6:30 a.m.

“School being so early definitely affects how much coffee teens drink, since we aren’t able to sleep much due to staying up late doing homework and having to get up early to get ready. Some do rely on coffee to give us enough energy to get through the day.”

Dylan’s mom, Janet Nitka, said her daughter is spending too much money on coffee.

The coffee consumption among teens and children is related, to their school activities to keep them awake and focus on their studies,

The U.S. Department of Agriculture conducts biannual health and nutrition examination surveys. The data gathered was published in 2011, but the information collected in 2013 will be available in late 2018 or 2019, an agency spokesperson said.

Some of the studies conducted in 2010 for children ages 6 to 11 were getting 8.5 percent of their caffeine from coffee. Participating teens, ages 12 to 16, were getting 12 percent of their caffeine from coffee. The U.S. government clarifies that before obtaining the data, they asked parents’ permission before surveying anyone under age 18.

In medical studies, researchers have noted concerns about caffeine and sleep — something children and teens desperately needs, doctors, say. Coffee drinking of children and teens is bothering but, death on caffeine are rare, however, when it comes to younger ages too much coffee can lead to future complications.

Coffee is not the only source of caffeine chocolates, soda also, has caffeine contents which can also help provide the needed amount of caffeine to our body especially for the kids and teens. However, if we can’t avoid drinking coffee as a young individual, we should drink coffee in moderation remember that too much caffeine is not healthy for our well-being.

Best Practices To Enjoy More Your Coffee

0

Most of the time we drink our coffee putting a lot of flavorings into it to make our coffee taste more interesting. Most of the time we put too much sugar, creamer, whipped cream and more. Unfortunately, this added condiments to our coffee can quickly build calories to our daily cup of Joe. Though drinking black coffee has only a handful of calories, but adding milk, flavoring, and sugar can increase a coffee’s calorie count pretty quickly.

However, there are some easy ways to make our daily cup of coffee less in calorie and more healthy.

1. Black Coffee

brewed coffee

Drinking black coffee is always a good option for a better and healthier cup of Joe. Black coffee has ten times more antioxidants than coffees with added flavorings. Though black coffee, tastes bitter, over time your taste buds will adapt to the bold flavor. So if you want to get the full benefits of your coffee, drink it brewed and black.

2. Stick To Almond Milk

Almond Milk

Dr. Oz notes that almond milk is the healthiest “milk” choice to mix with your cup of Joe. Unlike whole milk, which can make your cup of coffee 180 calories, almond milk will keep your coffee under 100 calories per serving.

3. No To Artificial Creamers

coffee mate artificial coffee creamer

Artificial creamers add jazz to coffee, but artificial creamers are filled with ingredients and packed with sugar, making them not the healthiest thing to put in your coffee. If you want something extra to your coffee rather than adding creamers to it, opt for coconut milk with a dash of vanilla extract.

Alternatively, try mixing your milk of choice with a teaspoon of honey for a hearty, flavor-packed coffee additive.

4. Choose only organic beans.

Single origin coffee beans

Buying organic coffee beans is not only healthy, but you can also get the best flavors of it. Single origin coffee beans are often free of pesticides and other harmful chemicals, that is why organic coffee beans are certified with no added chemicals to enter our body via our morning brew.

5. Instead of sugar use cinnamon

cinnamon coffee

The cinnamon on your local cafes’ countertops are not just for decorations they serve as an optional sweeter for those people who are looking for a healthier sweetener, rather than using sugar.

Adding cinnamon to your coffee can actually have several health benefits. Healthline reports that cinnamon may help reduce inflammation throughout your body and has been linked to heart health, though more research is needed. Portion control expert Dr. Lisa Young also notes that cinnamon can help stabilize blood sugar.

6. Get Chocolatey

Unsweetened cocoa and dark chocolate are both great additions to any coffee drink, in moderation, of course. Studies have claimed numerous health benefits, like balancing cholesterol and potential cancer-preventing properties, these indulgent add-ins are perfect for mocha lovers everywhere.

7, Adding Butter To Your Coffee

The Butter Coffee

Adding butter to your coffee is not just hearsay, but it’s a fact that putting unsalted grass-fed butter to your coffee is healthy, it gives welcoming boost energy without the added sugar or cream. Adding butter to your coffee is popularly known as Bulletproof coffee, you can add a small glob of unsalted grass-fed butter to your coffee and use an immersion blender to create a frothy, homemade latte.

8. Make sure to use the right mug

A 2014 study for Flavour found that the color of your coffee mug can influence how sweet or bitter you perceive a cup of coffee to be. In the study, they found drinking from a white mug can make the coffee to be more intense than using a transparent mug. Though this study needs more research, it may be worth swapping out your white mug for a transparent one to make your coffee “taste” less bitter and of course, reduce the amount of sugar you add to it.

9. Avoid drinking on an empty stomach.

coffee health

If you think drinking coffee in an empty stomach is okay, you might want to overwrite that perception, because drinking coffee in an empty stomach is an unhealthy habit that can lead to various health risks, it may damage your stomach lining and, increased anxiety. So to keep your body healthy while enjoying your cuppa. make sure to eat breakfast before drinking your morning, Joe.

10. Try golden lattes.

Golden lattes are not for a show of in social media, but this bright yellow drink actually contains a ton of healthful benefits. Dr. Young said adding turmeric to your coffee you can have anti-inflammatory benefits, and studies cited in Prevention claim that it can also help your memory.

cafelat robot espresso maker

As a coffee lover, we are always looking for a coffee maker that is easy to use and can give us our perfect cup of coffee. And nowadays it’s a plus when we found a coffee maker that is also eco-friendly.

When we look for coffee machines, we often opted for a single serve coffee machine that is why coffee pods are popular these days. However, coffee pods are not eco-friendly and end a pile of plastic garbages.

Thanks for the new technology because there is now an espresso maker that does not use plastic coffee pods.

A Hong Kong based coffee company Cafelat has launched its Cafelat Robot, that makes an espresso eliminating the need for plastic coffee pods. Cafelat Robot is a manual coffee maker that gives its users a high-quality espresso with just ground coffee and hot water.

The coffee robot first created in 2015, and it was designed for freshly ground coffee that you can buy to your local grocer or coffee merchants, which aims to eliminate the use of plastic capsules.

Cafelat Robot has no difference to mechanical coffee maker when it comes to coffee quality, the Cafelat Robot works with just hot water, and ground coffee, which is turned into a biodegradable “coffee puck” after use.

Paul Pratt, the founder of Cafelat, said: “Do not be fooled by the toy-like cutesy Robot looks, the robot means business and is capable of pulling espresso shots like a professional machine.”

The first launch of Cafelat Robot has beaten its fundraising target in Kickstarter. Each coffee robot costs from 1,870 dollars (around £170), and the devices are estimated to be available by September 2018.
