Blogging A to Z – Coffee Benefits

Today’s A to Z Challenge is the letter C so I wrote about black gold, the dancing goat’s drink, that’s right: coffee!

I learn more and more about how coffee has health benefits. Today, for example, doing research for this post I learned something new!

Unsweetened cocoa powder in your coffee increases its antioxidant properties.

Wow, gonna have to try that one. If you’re on Weight Watchers, know the powder does cost you a point. I just started on Weight Watchers recently so I am more aware of such things!

Another thing I like to share about coffee is the antioxidant and short term memory properties it contains.

I worked at the chain “The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf” in the 90’s and it was there I learned of coffee’s benefits.

It’s a fact to remember that these powers of coffee wane after an hour of sitting. So, in order to get all the medical benefits, and there are many more than I have mentioned, you must drink the coffee within an hour of when it’s brewed, or sooner.

Do you drink coffee? Do you know any benefits it has I haven’t mentioned? I know there are hundreds more because I’ve done many searches on the topic. image1-320x320Are you picky about the way they prepare your coffee? How do you take your coffee? Answer one of these questions in the comments, I’d love to hear from you! -Damien Riley

  1. LOVE coffee—and I was very, very pleased to hear about the health benefits of drinking it that have been going around lately. After a lifetime of being told it’s bad and causes all sorts of issues, this felt like vindication :D

    Happy A2Z-ing!

  2. I love coffee, and now I have a perfect excuse to drink it :) For years everyone has said how bad it is for you, I’m glad they are changing their minds
