Is drinking coffee good for you?

Coffee is a surprisingly nutritious beverage. One cup gives you 11% of your vitamin B2 and 6% of your vitamin B5 for the day. Of course, one of the biggest benefits of coffee is that it is a stimulant beverage, so it helps you feel focused and alert. There are also several other ways you can boost your health by switching on your coffee machine.

Research in 2005 found that coffee enhances your exercise performance by up to 11%. You can sip refreshing iced coffee K-cups before your workout to help you power through cardio and weightlifting exercises. Some research also indicates that coffee is a powerful antioxidant that protects your body on a cellular level. Regular coffee drinkers have lower risks of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, cancer, and more. 

However, you should keep in mind that coffee has fairly intense effects. Like any other mood-altering substance, you should use it wisely. Those under 12 should avoid drinking coffee. It may also be inadvisable to reach for scoops of instant coffee if you have an anxiety disorder, insomnia, or other conditions. You can always talk to your doctor if you want to make sure coffee is right for you.

What is the best kind of coffee?

The best kind of coffee for your household will depend on several factors. First of all, you need to think about the type of coffee machine you have. If you have a traditional drip machine, then you will need ground coffee. Those who want the freshest possible taste may prefer whole bean coffee they can grind themselves. You'll just need to make sure you have a grinder on hand for this type of coffee.

If you want to get a quick cup of coffee to perk you up, consider instant coffee and single-serve coffee types. Coffee K-cups that slot quickly into a Keurig machine will provide a quality cup of coffee quickly and easily. When you want an even faster experience that doesn't require any machinery, stir a spoonful of instant coffee into a mug of hot water.

Something else to think about when picking the best kind of coffee is flavor. You will need to decide if you want coffee that comes with flavors like hazelnut, vanilla, or caramel. You can find coffee K-cups and other types of flavored coffee with these tasty additions. Another major impact on flavor is the type of bean. Arabica beans are known for their smooth, mild taste. Colombian coffee is a specific variant of Arabica bean that has signature fruity, floral notes. If your main priority is a coffee that will keep you awake, you might enjoy the hearty caffeine content and strong flavor of Robusta beans.
