The Fountain of Youth Was Filled with Coffee

screen-shot-2017-01-26-at-14-03-59With advances in research and technology, coffee is gaining increased admiration for its seemingly countless health benefits. More attention is being given to this miracle bean each year, and our understanding of the wonders it can work is expanding. As it turns out, a nice cuppa is not only a good way to start the morning, but three or more each day can lead you to a fuller, healthier life. There are far too many advantages to list in a single article, so we’ll cover some of the most notable for you to read through while supping a freshly brewed cup.

Boosts More Than Your Energy
According to a study from John Hopkins University, coffee can not only improve your memory for 24 hours, it can provide an immediate mental boost for 45 minutes, putting you in charge. This can lead to faster reaction times, greater efficiency on the job, and an overall sense of awesomeness. While this would seem to be the most common and obvious reason people partake in coffee consumption, it’s physical gains are even more impressive. These effects are largely due to the large quantity of antioxidants in coffee, potentially reducing inflammation and other disorders, but also supporting the body’s maximum performance levels. Athletes have been known to neck off a cup or two before workouts for the following benefits:

  • Potential of a 15% increase in calories burned after exercise
  • Improved physical performance of around 11-12%
  • Endurance being enhanced by a staggering 26%
  • Fat burning raised by 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean individuals
  • More energy and recovery capability
  • Increased longevity and heart health

Reduces Risk with Every Cup
Adding to your state of being is wonderful, but what about all the amazing things coffee reduces? The secrets packed in each coffee bean are only now beginning to be fully understood, and many of the health risks they can reduce make it worth heading to the coffee machine to refuel. An increased metabolism has many obvious advantages for heading an active life, but the coffee (as well as the caffeine, fibre and antioxidants inside) do more magic in the circulatory, digestive, and nervous systems than you might know. Here, we’ll list some fascinating discoveries from various studies and research institutes. Consider the importance of reducing these factors in your life:

  • 3 cups of coffee a day has been found by researchers at USC Norris Comprehensive
  • Cancer Centre to have reduced the participants risk of developing the most common type of liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), by 29%
  • Coffee has also been linked with a reduced risk of developing gout (in men)
  • Lessens the risk of heart attack
  • 25% lower risk of developing diseases (in men)
  • Each cup potentially cuts the risk of type 2 diabetes by as much as 7-10%
  • 20% reduction of suicide and depression in certain individuals
  • Halves the risk of Parkinson’s disease
  • Drops the potential of colorectal cancer by 26%

Protects Against Health Problems
The black stuff can also be a strong ally to have in your corner – it’s been long touted as a protector against many of the scariest health problems afflicting adults in the UK. You might want to consider trading in some of the over-the-counter pills and potions for a reliable coffee machine. When taken straight-up, coffee can battle against:

  • Periodontal disease (protective benefit has been shown in combating gum disease)
  • Prostate cancer – 60% increased protection from dying of this disease
  • Throat and mouth cancers (studies indicate a 49% lower risk)
  • Alzheimer’s disease and dementia (research suggests 65% lower risk in participants)
  • An intake of 4 cups daily has been shown to protect against the development and reoccurrence of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Coffee is believed to stave off neural inflammation, which can trigger severe health conditions
  • Protection against cirrhosis of the liver (usually due to excessive alcohol consumption)
  • Melanoma

Prevents Common Issues and Ailments
Any wise man knows that prevention is key, and increasing your intake of coffee to around three cups a day now can have a positive impact in the future. We conclude the article with some useful reasons to drink coffee that you may not have thought of:

  • Research has linked coffee to the prevention of retinal damage
  • Preventing cavities – strong black coffee kills harmful bacteria on teeth
  • Stronger DNA as a result of less spontaneous DNA strand breakage in white blood cells
  • When 2 cups are taken an hour before, perceived muscle pain and aches can be reduced up to 48%, or even prevented altogether

Coffee is not just a delicious, useful part of our daily routine – this mysterious and revered drink brings natural healing power to our bodies, while reviving us and making us sharper, faster, and better.

Creativity by Customisation

Cafe Couture Just Add MilkPicture an ordinary coffee pot – we know that’s not the most exciting way to start an article, but that’s exactly the point. Most offices have either a traditional appliance tasked with the mundane job of pushing out caffeinated cups of hot liquid, or they are equipped with a fancier machine that promises a better result, but offers few options. Both of these scenarios completely miss the point of what a satisfying cup of coffee is really about – the reward of savouring the perfect selection, and contemplating that victory with each caffeine-infused sip.

This is the very essence of the world we live in today. Everything is customisable, from the apps on your phone, to the settings in your car. For most workers, the initial rush of energy and alertness that comes from their morning cup will set the tone and pace for the day. But it’s not only about the caffeine – the level of enjoyment that comes from the coffee is actually more important, as this triggers certain chain reactions in the brain, leading to innovation, or stifling it.

Ask yourself this fundamental question: Are the beans at the major coffee houses really that much better, or are professionals willing to wait in queue because of the vast menu of options that put them in control of the cup’s final outcome? The fact of the matter is simple – the more exciting it is to get coffee from within the office, the less likely workers are to seek this need before work or during breaks.

Cafe Couture – Reinventing The Office Coffee Experience

Every company knows that happy staff equals productive staff, and for many workers these days happiness can be reinforced in the form of a great cup of coffee.

Research has found that the average person in the UK drinks 2.5 cups of coffee per day; in the office environment that goes up to 5.5 cups. This can be costly, for both the member of staff and for their employer.

Take the price of a cup of coffee. In most High Street outlets this can be anywhere between £2.40 and £3. That’s a potential bill of £16.50 per worker.

Then there’re the trips from the office to the local coffee shop. Survey results suggest workers spend an average of 21 minutes on a coffee run: leaving their desks to visit the nearest Costa, Starbucks or other outlet, queuing, and then coming back to the office.

That mounts up to a lot of unproductive time for them, and lost productivity for you.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Find out why…
