I've never been a long term coffee drinker. I drank coffee for a brief period when I was younger but found it gave me the jitters.
Recently I decided I would try to give it another go as more and more research emerges on the benefits of having one good quality coffee a day. One coffee a day may put you in a lower risk group for prostate, liver, lung and colorectal cancer. As well as helping to prevent a handful of other degenerative diseases; assist in increasing your gastrointestinal flora, and pulmonary function.
Cold drip coffee makers boast that their method of extraction retains flavour while avoiding acidic oils found in most high temperature extractions. They also offer a difference in energy distribution. Rather than an immediate spike and a quick drop off, resulting in a noticeable level of jitters, often coupled with some anxiety. Cold Drip coffee provides a slower release of energy and increase in mental and physical performance.
Remember drinking enough water, on top of your usual intake, to counteract dehydration from the caffeine is super important. Caffeine is quite toxic on its own, it's the mix of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in coffee that neutralise the toxicity. That's just one reason to avoid caffeinated energy drinks at all costs!
Has anyone else had success with cold drip coffee?
