A wake Up


Further to my post What is in a cup of coffee any way I wrote about what I thought about coffee and what was my favourite type.

And although I did mention some of the benefits that coffee I did not mention all of them. I was contacted by #GerardPaul from #ManyEats in which he mentions many more. So in conjunction, I would like to add his amazing article Health Effects of Coffee which has more information. Although opposing to my own views on points. I would be foolish not to recommend reading it. So although this is a short post, I wanted to add more information. And since my previous post was a year ago on my original blog and rather than just edit my post I thought I would write a completely new post.

What is in a cup of coffee anyway?

 Bosch Tassimo Charmy

  I love a good Tassimo Costa Coffee Latte, however, if my budget doesn't stretch to that as it's on the average £5 per box of 8 drinks I will pick the less expensive but just as delicious Tassimo L'OR Latte Macchiato Coffee Pods which is £4.50 a box. These prices were correct at the time of original posting.

These drinks are made via pods rather than say the Nespresso Essenza Mini Coffee Machine with Aeroccino, Pure White by Magimix

which is done only by using capsules, your own milk and an aerator to froth up the milk

There is another cheap coffee system which I have used and did like very much which is the Dolce Gusto Coffee Machine

 which again like Tassimo uses pods. They are just as good as the Tassimo although they do not have such big names as Suchard, Twinings, or Cadburys and Costa Coffee supporting them.

But you know coffee isn't just the latte or cappuccino that you have with amazing friends or that few moments that you have to have to yourself in the day and have your treat in the form of a cup of coffee.

It has been said that it can help kick your metabolism into action and help your body use your fat cells as energy too particularly if you drink it black according to The Times of India and an article. There are also more benefits which are mentioned in caffeine informer. These include helping against depression, focus, and even states that it can help lower the possibility to have Alzheimer's. I personally can't vouch for these claims but I do know that it does keep me more awake and give me more energy when I need it.

There are other ways of having coffee, like having it through a french press

Which you can get anywhere, like Tescos, Sainsbury's, Amazon or you can get a coffee machine

similar to the above filter coffee machine.
So if you love a cup of coffee there are lots of different ways of getting this healthy yet naughty drink. I say it's naughty because if you add milk and sugar they divert the goodness away according to the articles. 
Right now I am considering to try a coffee black in the morning to kick start my own body and firstly I will be trying an Americano every morning for the next two weeks and see what the reactions I get with my own body. I then will post my reaction for two weeks on.
Love and Peace
