I love coffee. I love it black or with cream. I love drinking it with something sweet like Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
I just consumed the last of the Kona coffee I bought in Hawaii last January. I have to remember to call my mother in law and ask her to send some of that barako beans she has with her.
We tend to believe that coffee is bad for us but literature abounds regarding its beneficial effects. It contains antioxidants, chemicals that may play a role in delaying aging. It has been documented to have protective effects against Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, both brain diseases common in the elderly. Although documentation is unclear, coffee was drank as early as the 6th century in Africa; in the 17th century it caught up in the Arabian peninsula and started to be enjoyed in Europe particularly Venice in the 1700’s.
Ah coffee, one of my passions. Got to drink this cup. More on this topic later.
