Positive Coffee Facts For 2021

Coffee has health benefits! Let’s face it, most of us are bleary-eyed, staggering when we first wake up in the morning with feet dragging. Yet when the delightfully delicious and oh so amazing scent of coffee tickles our nostrils, we break, sigh and lean in the direction of it.

Here are 6 positive coffee facts for 2021

Coffee helps combat infection

Caffeine can help protect our brain cells from exposure to Parkinson’s, Autism, and Alzheimer’s. In addition, the coffee’s antioxidants could also help prevent liver disease.

Coffee gives a boost to the mind

Coffee helps you feel more conscious when you feel drowsy otherwise. Try to drink a cup before a test or if you have a long drive to keep your mind fresh and alert. This of course is to each their own on how coffee affects them and also caffeine tolerance levels.

Coffee helps you to lose weight

The intake of caffeine can improve the metabolism and the cycle of fat burning, which also helps to reduce the risk of obesity. You can also choose one of the lowest-calorie drinks.

Coffee lowers diabetes risk

Drinking only one cup of coffee a day — caffeinated or decaf— could reduce the risk of diabetes by 13%. Around 12 cups a day, though, the chance of diabetes is rising by 67%. While these findings are impressive, you must consult your doctor before taking the challenge of 12 cups a day and drinking caffeine in balance at all times.

Coffee can helps with depression

People who eat four or more cups of coffee a day are 10% less likely to be depressed than someone who doesn’t drink coffee at all, a new report by the National Institutes of Health and the AARP says. Oddly enough, the same effects are not present in other caffeinated drinks, such as colas whose customers are associated with a higher risk of depression. Because studies show that black coffee has the greatest advantages, it may be the high content of cola sugar that puts its customers at such a high risk of depression.

Coffee may be great for your liver

Studies suggest that caffeine helps balance the liver itself. The risk of a person contracting primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), a rare autoimmune disease that can lead to liver cirrhosis, liver failure, and even cancer, is decreased with regular coffee intake, the Mayo Clinic said this month. A similar 22-year survey of 125 K people also showed that those who drank at least one cup of coffee a day were less likely to develop alcoholic cirrhosis by 20 percent.


A cup of coffee a day

Recent studies show that drinking up to three 8-ounce cups of coffee a day has proven health benefits, not only is the aroma of coffee a great eye-opener.

Coffee can be just the super-juice you need with your daily morning breakfast with its brain and metabolism-enhancing energy as well as its infection and illness combating properties. You now have a whole different (and beneficial) set of reasons to bring behind that argument when you say you need your cup of coffee a day.

Remember that if you have high blood pressure, depression, or over-active thyroid, or any other health condition you will want to check with your doctor before you drink coffee. If you have trouble sleeping, it is best to avoid the intake of caffeine at least 4-6 hours before bedtime. Herbal teas are wonderful before bed and come with an abundance of health benefits.


Coffee facts, myths, and coffee trivia

It’s not easily given up for those who enjoy it. Maybe because this drink is so popular, it’s surrounded by facts, myths, and trivia. Some are real, some are not, and some are myths that are just interesting. So let’s look at some of the coffee-related facts, theories, and trivia!

Coffee Shops Are A Modern Invention

You may assume that coffee houses and coffee shops are a modern invention, but in truth, King Charles II of England imposed a ban on coffee houses back in 1675! The explanation behind the ban? King Charles II was fearful that his rivals would scheme against him in these coffee houses.

Coffee Add Chocolate

You probably think of a drink that is a mixture of chocolate and coffee if you hear “mocha.” But in fact, “Mocha” is Yemen’s port name, and this is where coffee beans are shipped from Africa. But “Mocha” has to do with the root of the drinking coffee bean, not whether it contains chocolate or not.

How Much Coffee Is That?

The United States is the world’s top coffee-consuming country, consuming 400 million cups a day.

Espresso vs. Cappuccino vs. Latte

First, espresso does not refer to the form of coffee beans, but rather to the way it is prepared. It is necessary to make coffee by pressing a specific amount of hot water into very fine-ground coffee beans to be called espresso. It creates a type of coffee that is very concentrated.

Cappuccino or lattes are chocolate drinks made from the foundation of espresso. It is said that the name “cappuccino” refers to the frothy, pointed, white top which resembles the white hood of the habit of the Capuchin friars. A latte is made without the topping of coffee or steamed milk.

Coffee Trees

No one can tell you that coffee does not grow on trees, because it does! Coffee trees can live for up to 100 years, and it takes about five years to start harvesting coffee beans from the tree. One tree produces approximately one pound of coffee a year. Creating a pound takes around 2000 raw coffee beans.

A Joe Cup

People are always asking why coffee is sometimes called Joe. In the early 1900s, Admiral Josephus “Joe” Daniels banned all Navy ships from liquor, so the sailors turned to coffee named after him in honor of his prohibitions.

One Or Two Beans?

Round and smooth coffee “drinks” and whole coffee beans. They split in half when they were roasted So, in a box of un-ground coffee, the coffee beans you see are actually half-beans.

Fuel And Coffee

In addition to fuel, coffee is the world’s second-largest traded commodity.

First Coffee Percolator

In December 1865, just six days before the New Year, James Mason invented the coffee percolator.

Memory Enhancement

A 2005 study showed that coffee enhances memory, and a follow-up study showed that long-term memory-enhancing benefits might be possible. Coffee is surrounded by the mythology of all sorts-some are legends, some are a reality, and some are just plain fun.

Enjoy your next cup of coffee!

  1. Hello there! This is a great read as I am highly interested in the health benefits of various foods and beverages. I used to drink coffee much more when I was in school but now I drink it here and there. It is quite amazing how many health benefits coffee has. Before when I drank coffee, I needed sugar and cream and so there were always calories in it. Now that I’ve started intermittent fasting, I somehow trained myself to drink black coffee which has no calories all while gaining the benefits. 

  2. Holly crap! I had no idea that coffee offered so many positive benefits! And I love that you offered some much information to go along with this amazing factual article. I have never been a big coffee drinker but lately, I have started drinking it more because I wake up early (at 5) every day, and man it helps… but I was scared that doing this would be bad for me… thank this article on positive coffee facts, I now know a few cups of coffee is healthy! Thanks!

  3. I LOVE coffee so this article was right up my alley!!

    I wonder if there is a difference in the health benefits depending on what else is in the coffee? By that I mean, are the benefits still there if you have loads of cream and/or milk in the coffee?

    Needless to say, this article was interesting and makes me feel better about the amount of coffee I drink.

    xo, Anna

  4. Since I am an avid coffee drinker and have done some research I was previously aware of some of these advantages to drinking coffee. At the same time, you have elevated my knowledge and education in this area tremendously. This has been a real eye-opener for me. It’s interesting that I am able to drink a cup or two of coffee prior to be and sleep very soundly. It has never kept me up. I appreciate this info as I didn’t realize coffee trees live up to 100 years and it takes 5 years to begin harvesting. Always good to learn more!
