Are you a coffee addict as much as I am ? How do you like your coffee?
Coffee is my everyday little guilty pleasure! I can’t imagine my morning without a tiny cup of espresso. I am sure that many people can share the addiction to this aromatic and bitter -sweet tasting drink. I don’t put sugar into my coffee and, unless this is a cappuccino,I don’t put milk into it as well. But sipping espresso with a glass of cold mineral water makes it perfect! Mineral water enhances the delicate taste of this fascinating drink.
There are some controversy about drinking coffee ,as it may bring your blood pressure and heart beat rate up. The key is moderation.You should know your body and listen to the signs of discomfort or any side effects you may experience from using too much caffeine. For most of healthy adults coffee brings nothing, but the pleasure.
There are some major benefits that drinking coffee regularly, according to some studies, can provide you with, including improving energy level, stimulating your brain activity, burning fat, curbing your appetite, even reducing the premature aging of the cells!
I don’t drink instant coffee and I always buy my coffee in whole beans. It should be certified organic. Nothing is better than freshly ground and brewed organic coffee to start your day with!
I love Ethical Bean Coffee, grown in Guatemala, roasted in Canada and my favorite choices from this brand are:
- Sweet espresso – medium dark roasted whole beans coffee – full-bodied, with excellent taste in espresso, good for cappuccino or any other drinks you would prefer to add milk to.
- Lush– medium dark roasted whole beans coffee- with perfect fruity notes into the taste, perfect for my espresso.
The other brand, that I use often, is Italian LavAzza. I bought recently and really like Armonico – medium roasted whole bean coffee from this brand.This is your classical 100% Arabica, tasting smooth and rich, a little bit on the stronger side for a medium roast coffee, with the perfect bitter smell that really talks to me! Try it and enjoy!
