Lets TALK coffee...

Give your take, please :)

Lets talk about coffee
Suzy Sumner

I often get asked about coffee C is it really bad for us or ok, how much, what type? The reason there is no clear response on coffee is that there are both positive and negative side effects!If you are consuming a lot of caffeine (around 500mg a day) or if you regularly experience anxiety, restlessness or headaches it may be a moment to look at your coffee habit. Bear in mind that an average espresso is about 80mg of caffeine, a larger coffee (contrary to popular belief) has more caffeine in it as more water has passed through the grains to take the caffeine with it (around 95-200mg depending on size). Other factors also play a role including level of roasting and whether beans are coarsely or finely ground. Oh yes and adding sugar and milk does not reduce the caffeine!So what are the perks? helps to stimulate alertness, can improve mood and concentration and even performance (some athletes have a coffee before a run). It has been shown to help reduce Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases and also contains some antioxidants (basically stops us rusting from the inside!)
Great lets have a cup then!But, you also need to know that caffeine has its problems:Caffeine raises blood pressure and stress levels (stress hormones including cortisol) in the body and can also exacerbate gastro-intestinal problems (abdominal pain, diarrhea). For women it can also increase PMS, osteoporosis and a series of other issues. It also raises blood sugar in the body (even more if you add sugar!)
So whats the bottom line?
Pretty much like most other things we know we need to keep in moderation:
Good to know:
[*] not too much (keep well under 500mg per day C better around 200mg)
[*] the best quality you can better one good one than 4 office filter coffees!
[*]avoid coffee on an empty stomach after breakfast or after lunch are the best times
[*]reduce or cut out sugar in it (try a small piece of dark chocolate at first to see if that helps)
[*]when you have one really enjoy it!

Saya hanya mula minum kopi secara konstan once I reached 30 years old. Sejak dari tu juga, saya berminat mengetahui apa sahaja tentang kopi.

Antara perkara yang saya baru ketahui ialah kopi jenis Robusta lebih tinggi tahap asidiknya berbanding dengan Arabika.

Tahap pembakaran biji kopi juga turut mempengaruhi rasa kopi. Pilihan saya semestinya dark roasted.

Yup, taking coffee in moderation is the best

My favourite has to be latte or cappuccino {:1_511:}{:1_200:}

Saya dan suami adalah pencinta kopi. Pergi mana2 nampak kopi mesti nak cuba. Kopi yang paling saya suka adalah latte.

Kopi ais paling sedap adalah di Vietnam pada tekak saya.

Kopi paling kenangan adalah kopi mesin pekan sehari Temerloh. Balik Temerloh memang akan minum ni setiap masa

Kopi paling romantik adalah ketika minum di pekan kecil Freisinger German. Minum tepi jalan sambil melihat2 orang lalu lalang.

Kopi paling enjoy adalah latte di McD wakaf Che yeh keluar dengan husband tengah malam. Borak2 sambil bercinta. Hahaha

Belakang dia ada kedai orang jual sate. Ada dua gerai je yang jual kopi mesin. Satu Melayu. Satu cina. Yang cina tu lejen dari zaman uwan2 dulu lagi.
