Everything you need to know about coffee! If you learn one thing from us let it be this: coffee knowledge is not pointless. It can be used for many things. For instance, telling someone that in fact, coffee is not dehydrating when they\’re explaining their detox to you is a great party trick. Or how about when you\’re standing at the coffee machine in your office and someone walks over and you mention to them that the first webcam was invented to watch the coffee machine and make sure it was never empty.
Below read some of the top things you should know about coffee beans that you may have never heard before.
1. Coffee won\’t dehydrate you.
While many people think that coffee is a diuretic, recent studies have shown that this isn\’t the case. Unless you are consuming over 700 mg of caffeine per day, the body\’s liquid output is as same as the input.
2. The coffee belt isn\’t a belt made out of coffee.
A coffee belt probably exists somewhere in the world (let us know), the coffee belt refers to the area near the equator where coffee can be grown. It\’s an imaginary line that shows the regions in each continent in which coffee is grown.
3. The roast of the coffee has little to do with the amount of caffeine.
Death Wish Coffee is a dark roast and it is the World\’s Strongest, but one doesn’t beget the other. You will get more caffeine in your brew because of the types of beans and the coffee-to-water ratio.
4. Coffee bloom has nothing to do with a plant.
Letting your coffee bloom is one of the biggest secrets to creating the perfect cup. Coffee retains carbon dioxide when it is roasted. When it is ground, the beans release the gas and when hot water is poured on it the gasses release even quicker. The bloom is the result of this and is important because the flavour is trapped in the carbon dioxide gasses.
5. Cold brew coffee is less acidic.
Cold brew coffee is made using fresh, filtered cold water under 40 degrees. Because there is no hot water, the oils that make the coffee acidic are not pulled through.
These are just some insights into the ancient brew. Drinking a cup of great-tasting coffee can depend on a variety of things, such as coffee beans, barista, type of coffee machine, bean strength etc. We offer a range of different coffee blends to meet the demands of different individuals.
