Coffee lovers all over the world are probably not thinking about the health benefits or risks of their favorite morning brew. Nonetheless, this beverage has a long history of controversy.
The World Health Organization added coffee to its list of possible carcinogens in 1991. By 2016, it had been exonerated, as research discovered that the beverage was not associated with an increased risk of cancer; on the contrary, there was a lower risk of certain cancers among those who drank coffee on a regular basis, once smoking history was properly accounted for.
According to new research, coffee can be considered a healthy beverage when consumed in moderation.
Coffee and Health – Coffee is a complex mixture of over a thousand chemicals.
The coffee you order at a coffee shop is probably not the same as the coffee you brew at home, the type of coffee bean used, how it is roasted, the amount of grind, and how it is brewed all vary significantly.
Caffeine in low to moderate doses (50-300 mg) may increase alertness, energy, and concentration, whereas higher doses may cause anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, and increased heart rate.
Coffee beans are the seeds of the coffee cherry fruit. Coffee cherries grow on coffee trees from the Coffea genus of plants. Coffee plants come in a wide range of species, from shrubs to trees.
The type of roast – Coffee beans are born green. They are roasted at high temperatures to cause a chemical reaction that releases the rich aroma and flavor that we associate with coffee. They are then cooled and ground in preparation for brewing.
Grind style – The most common grind is medium, which is used in automatic drip coffee makers. A fine grind is used for stronger flavors, such as espresso, and a coarse grind is used in coffee presses.
Caffeine-free coffee – This is an option for those who have negative caffeine side effects. Chemical solvents (methylene chloride or ethyl acetate) or carbon dioxide gas are the two most common methods for removing caffeine from coffee.
To carry the decaffeinated label in the United States, at least 97% of the caffeine must be removed.
