For the people talking about cold brewed coffee... yes, it is less acidic on the body than hot coffee by about 67%. Google it if you need it backed be research. It tastes much better as well, as the heat doesn't destroy all the lovely flavours.
I drink one cup in the morning when I am in the office, mostly because I like to drink something hot, so I wouldn't mind drinking tea. BUT, the most important part of my drink is the heavy cream I add in generous amounts. Coffee+cream=YUM
I am not addicted though, I can skip it easily.
Btw, espresso is an Italian word.
This cold coffee brewing sounds intriguing...have to check it out.
You can also cold brew tea. I do it in the fridge, where it works best with traditional anxi oolongs. Sencha / shincha fans also cold brew using ice.
Coffee is beneficial to my health, or at least, me *not* having coffee is extremely detrimental to everyone else.
More seriously, I feel that there is a large element of placebo going on, since I will happily drink de-caff or tea in the morning instead. I am used to at least one hot drink in the morning first thing, and it is generally better for the world if I get it.
Excess of anything is harmful to health. Why don't people just take life in balance? Wherever I go and see, I find somebody either drinking lots of coffee - having sleeping disorder, somebody is playing too much of videogame - wearing thick glasses... It is not just about coffee, ya I like drinking coffee too but only to taste, one cup of coffee is enough for a day am I right?
Get a life guys, learn that happiness in life is in "balance" only.
Eat Less live long!
