The beauty of Coffee… loved by billions around the world. Maybe it’s the taste, aroma or just that kick of caffeine. As for me, I’m really not a fan, but I know someone who can go through 20 cups of the beverage in a single day. Now that’s what I call addiction. From its potential discovery by the legendary Kaldi, an Ethiopian goat herder, to being celebrated internationally in October, coffee has grown to become a ritualistic lifestyle for many. But have you ever wondered if there was more to that delicious cup of joe you drank this morning? Lucky for you, the cool guys from Dubai’s newest specialty coffee offering, Drop Coffee, just agreed to share with us the marvels of coffee! Now you can rejoice while sipping on your favorite blend.
With over 2.25 billion cups of coffee consumed daily all over the world and scientific research behind the benefits of sipping on brewed arabica beans, it is becoming significantly evident that coffee contributes to health benefits, economic growth, and social development.
The Marvels of Coffee from Drop Coffee
Debating Diabetes with Coffee
In the UAE, where 19.3 percent of the population suffers from diabetes, coffee may play a crucial role. According to an intensive research conducted by Dr. Frank Hu from Harvard, the risk of type II diabetes decreases by 9% for each daily cup of coffee consumed, with decaf decreasing risk by 6%.
Coffee and Weights, the Perfect Date
Drinking coffee before a workout has been found to improve gym performance. A research conducted by Coventry University in the United Kingdom discovered that a cup of coffee not only enhanced and boosted effective gym participation but also improved manual dexterity. Thank you, Drop Coffee, at this rate I should become a fan in a few years.
A Coffee a Day Keeps the Reaper Away
Earlier this year, a study that involved 185,000 people from different cultures revealed coffee increases longevity irrespective of race and lifestyle. The study, conducted by Annals of Internal Medicine, helped discover a stronger biological possibility for the relationship between coffee and longevity. It also concluded that heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease and stroke had a lower chance of occurring due to the consistent consumption of coffee.
Ethically sourced coffee instigates genuine relationships directly with farmers and supports fair payment. The elimination of a middleman and mutual understanding for quality beans at fairly paid prices helps enrich the farmers’ lives. This, in turn, helps lead to opportunities of a better quality of life with possibilities of schools and education in a poverty-dominant environment. Also, an estimated 27 million people rely on coffee as their economic mainstay with an estimate of 197 hands that have worked to deliver every cup of coffee from seed to cup. Good to know Drop Coffee, I feel better already about consuming at least a cup a day.
Cup of Happiness
What’s better than an energy boost? A happy boost! According to a decade-long study on caffeine and its relationship with mental health, it was found that depression risk decreases with increasing caffeinated coffee consumption… hmm.
