We all use coffee to stay awake during lengthy work days, classes or meetings. All of us appreciate the aromatic taste and awakening features that this delicious hot drink gives us but did you know that good coffee could actually save your life? 

Essential nutrients & Antioxidant

Coffee beans, like any other food we consume, can be cooked (in that case: roasted) well or poorly. 

If you leave your pizza in the oven for too long and at a too high temperature it will burn, taste horrible and be unhealthy for you – just like bad coffee!

But if you roast the beans properly, they contain an astonishing amount of good stuff for your body! 

Depending on the roast and preparation method a single cup of coffee contains:  

· Riboflavin (Vitamin B2): 11% of the RDA. (recommended daily allowance)

· Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5): 6% of the RDA.

· Manganese and Potassium: 3% of the RDA.

· Magnesium and Niacin (B3): 2% of the RDA.

Coffee also contains a tremendous number of antioxidants which are known to be a vital part of a healthy diet.

The fact that black coffee is sugar free and fat free and contains so many nutrients makes it one of the healthiest beverages in the world. 

Protect your liver 

Our liver is a very important vital organ with many bodily functions and due to its multifunctional status it is prone to diseases such as hepatitis, fatty liver or alcoholic liver diseases.

Many of these diseases can lead to cirrhosis. This means that the liver has been largely replaced by scar tissue. It is an irreversible and very severe illness. 

Astonishingly, it turns out that coffee may have a direct protective effect against cirrhosis.
Scientists have found that people who drink two to four cups per day have up to an 80% lower risk of being affected by this disease. However, this is only preventional and can not reverse it when you got it already. 

Coffee drinkers show a lower risk of getting some types of cancer

Coffee shows to have protective properties against two types of cancer which are liver cancer and colorectal cancer.

Studies show that coffee drinkers have up to a 40% lower risk of liver cancer which plays in with the other health benefits that drinking coffee has on our liver.

For colorectal cancer, one study of over 400,000 subjects found that people who drink 4-5 cups of coffee a day have a 15% lower risk of developing this type of cancer.

Higher energy levels while being happier and smarter  

A lot of studies with humans have found that drinking coffee improves several brain functions such as concentration, mood, memory, energy levels, reaction times and overall cognitive function. 

Another interesting fact is that coffee may even lower your risk of becoming depressed. 

Furthermore, a study at Harvard university found that women who drink four or more cups of coffee per day have a 20% lower risk of suffering from depression.

Please keep in mind that all these findingsconcern the consumption of black coffee. Adding milk, sugar or other substances to your coffee can diminish or prevent the healthy effects of drinking coffee.

Why the roast is so important

Most instant coffees will not show the positive effects as they are too much altered from the natural coffee bean and have seen too many processing steps.

Slow and low-temperature roasting methods have another healthy benefit: the formation of acrylamides, that could cause cancer and occur in all foods and beverages that are exposed to heat, are kept to the very minimum. Also, some chlorogenic acids that might cause stomach problems with sensitive people are decomposed to a maximum degree to attain the most gentle and wholesome coffee.
