Coffee is namely the most consumed beverage in the world after water.
So, Wheelys Cafe – an organic coffee chain discusses the surprising amount of misinformation out there about the highly popular drink.
For Centuries, people from all around the world have been enjoying the classic brewed coffee. With coffee’s golden history and being an essential part of our everyday lives, we are still yet to know more about coffee. It’s surprising a simple beverage is so misinterpreted.
As we love drinking coffee, some also worry about certain myths about coffee that have been spread or published over a period of time. let’s discuss some the most common myths and clarify the differences between a cup of coffee and the misconstructed surrounding air.
Light roasts are less caffeinated than dark roast coffee beans [MYTH-1]
Many people ought to think dark roast coffee is rich in color and robust in flavor and aroma which makes it more caffeinated. but the fact states, almost all types of coffee beans contain the same amount of caffeine, regardless of the roast.
the lightly roasted coffee beans are like to provide more strong taste than the dark roasted beans.
More the heat, less the caffeine in a bean. lightly roasted beans have more caffeine because of less heat exposure during the roasting process.
this proves the reason why the morning coffee blend is crafted from light roast to medium roast. However, if you still prefer the dark tone of your beverage not to worry caffeine content type is small and you won’t feel much difference in both types.
A regular cup of coffee will have less caffeine than an Espresso cup [ MYTH-2]
A regular cup of coffee or espresso – ever wondered to know which drink has the most caffeine extent?
You’ll be surprised to learn that a usual morning cup of coffee contains more caffeine than a single raw shot of espresso.
An espresso shot is served in a small, shot glass because of its thick texture, therefore many adopted the misconception denser the texture, more the caffeine. On the other hand, espresso seems bitter with cream on top, served with a greater quantity, and thicker texture (as well).
Next time, before ordering give a thought to this if you are looking for an afternoon pick me up joe.
Espresso is more than just a creamy coffee [MYTH-3]
We agree that an espresso drink is made with a special technique and is described well by creamy, concentrated texture. but there is a lot more to it than this:
espresso ain’t a specific bean, it can be roasted into the required color and any coffee can be crafted into a short of espresso, dark or light, according to the preference.
A blend of beans is also called an Espresso. the roaster and technique used for the roasting process can vary the texture and color of an espresso. Also, it can even be used straight from the origin.
Coffee is the best to sober you up [MYTH-4]
it’s a proven fact that coffee helps you stay awake or build energy for you, however, whether it helps with sobering up then the answers is ‘NO’. the caffeine content in one drink doesn’t reduce the effects of alcohol, it actually makes it worse for you. alcohol and caffeine together increase the chances of harmful situations, such as driving or another dangerous social situation. coffee and alcohol together create negative cognitive impact.
Drink Coffee to lose weight! [MYTH-5]
not really. if you are thinking long-term weight loss plan then skip to a healthy diet than be dependent on just coffee and caffeine content. coffee might help in increasing the metabolism rate but the results are very less, there’s not enough evidence to show long-term intake of coffee helps reduce weight loss.
Oily beans are fresher beans [MYTH-6]
Have you ever opened a bag an of freshly roasted coffee beans, slipping through your fingers? each bean feels like a precious stone with magical aroma and perfectly roasted with shine and dark brown color tone.The coffee beans that appear darker is because of high temperature they are processed under which get the shine on the bean and this process even open the pores of the bean because of which the oil flows out. results into the oily shiny surface.
However, with Lightly roasted beans never reach such intense high-temperature point because of which they seem more rough, dry and dull in color. Which explains, the true essence and quality and caffeine remain intact.
Oily surface or dark color tone appearance of coffee beans is not a true indicator of freshness.
