5 false myths about coffee





Lavazza Goup gives light to some of the most widespread popular beliefs about coffee consumption

During the most welcoming and festive time of the year, everyone loves to enjoy a comforting and warm cup of coffee in the comfort of their home, surrounded by loved ones and the Christmas atmosphere. To get the best coffee experience, experts from the Italian coffee maker company Lavazza Group have decided to clarify some erroneous myths about coffee consumption.

Coffee is a very popular drink around the world, but there are many assumptions about coffee that are not true. Here 5 of the most widespread mists on coffee, according to Lavazza Group:


1. Storage
Saving the coffee in the fridge makes it last longer.

Reality: The best thing is to buy only what can be stored in a hermetic container for a reasonable time in a dark, fresh and dry place. Keeping the coffee in the fridge can expose it to moisture, even if the whole grains are kept. So no, cold storage in the fridge won't make the coffee last longer.

2. Preparation
It is necessary to use boiling water to prepare the coffee.

Reality: The boiling water temperature is 100 degrees or more, but the water temperature needed to prepare the coffee is about 95 degrees, so one or two minutes are enough. If you just boil water in the fire, you better pause and leave a minute or two before pouring it over the ground coffee. If the temperature exceeds 100 degrees, it is likely to burn the ground coffee, and acquire a bitter and burnt taste. Guia y trucos de Zoom

3. Toasted
Dark toasted coffee has more caffeine.

Reality: The dark roasted coffee contains some less caffeine than the clearest toast. The longer the coffee beans are roasted, the more humidity is eliminated and with humidity there is a small amount of caffeine dissolved. The darkest toast has a stronger flavor due to the burnt caramelization of the grains, but the caffeine level never increases.


4. Addiction
Coffee is highly addictive.

Reality: Drinking coffee becomes a habit for many, but this coffee does not fall into the category of “highly addictive substance.” Even though there is one who says it is “addictator” to coffee, coffee caffeine is not that kind of stimulant. Most of the institutions, including the National Institute on Drug Abuse, define the habit of caffeine as a “dependence”, something that people can stop eating without symptoms of life-threatening withdrawal or self-destructive behavior.

5. Effects
Pregnant women should avoid coffee

Reality: Data suggest that moderate caffeine consumption, i.e. 3-4 cups of coffee is considered safe for a pregnant woman. The results of the studies have not provided solid evidence that the consumption of caffeine beverages can reduce the likelihood that a woman conceives. Numerous studies have found no correlation between caffeine consumption and problems during pregnancy or its negative effects on the outcome of pregnancy.
