Today we tried Verena Street's Wine Barrel Aged Sumatra. This coffee is roasted in small batches at a time. Our order was shipped almost immediately after we placed our order. The smell from the package was definitely reminiscent of a wine barrel. When I let my...
Many enjoy the Salted Caramel Mocha from Starbucks. Today, I wish to let people know of another version of this drink they may like better. The Salted Caramel White Mocha. The only difference is that it's made with the white mocha syrup instead of the chocolate...
A Coffee Review One of our favorite coffees to order in is from the award-winning Klatch coffee roasters. I can't say enough about the quality of their coffees. We especially love the Ethiopia coffee from them and have ordered it in multiple times. They seem to have a...
A Coffee Review I'm a huge fan of using your business to support a charity, and a lover of animals, so Grounds & Hounds coffee got my attention right away. I've tried a couple of their coffees, the cold brew, and their hot cocoa. Their cold brew doesn't...
A Coffee Subscription Review This year we had a surprise gift from a friend for a holiday box from the company, Bean Box. Bean Box offers many varieties of gifts and subscriptions for the coffee enthusiast. You can order a single shipment of coffee, treats, and...
The myth about coffee and hypertension and when coffee does raise blood pressure.
It's a pumpkin sort of day. I escaped the mess that is my house during the renovation that will continue through this winter season. Starbucks is my first escape destination on such days. They know me well there. I've even started inviting clients to have meetings...
The weather outside is not delightful. One of those good days for a spiced up coffee drink. This Cinnamon/Vanilla Latte gives a little something extra to help warm you up with gentle spiced flavoring.
Cold brew coffee is a wonderful thing, but many people still seem to forget that what you get from the brewing method is a coffee concentrate and thus, it can have a lot more caffeine in it than your normal cup of coffee.
Coffee News from the Web
Great Coffee Without Caffeine
I don’t battle the myths about coffee out there on message threads. Just here, where people choose to come here and listen.
Just know when I post facts about coffee, they’re that. Facts from verified sources. Not just what’s posted on the internet.
Remember, not everything on the internet is true, and you should question EVERYTHING. Even me. I know I do my best to research it, but chances are you don’t even know me.
(Remember what Mom warned you about strangers. 🙂 )
If you take anything I say and follow it to better your health, do two things:
- Check it out very well for yourself, or check out the resources I give that are from scientificly approved studies or universities. Even go further.
- Maintain a conversation with your doctor about any changes in diet that include caffeine.
I’m choosing to highlight this article because I saw in a recent thread I follow how someone commented against decaf. They said they were going to switch to decaf while pregnant but then found out there’s chemicals in decaf coffee.
That is a partial myth. There’s different methods for making decaf coffee. One is with chemicals, but not in the way that is harming.
I’m sensitive to chemicals though, so I’ve made a personal choice to not drink decaf coffee processed with that method if I can help it.
I always do my best to get decaf coffee made with the swiss water method. Here is a myth buster page from the company, who does extensive testing and research in the coffee world.
Coffee Makes Teams More Effective, Say Scientists
It’s what us coffee drinkers have been saying all along. Coffee helps us work better. Now we have scientific proof of it.
“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.”
Oops. And here I thought coffee just helped keep us from throat punching irritating co-workers.
