If you decide to not take your morning route to Starbucks this week you may be missing out. The company’s latest coffee is so rare they are only selling it for a single week. When Starbucks isn’t too busy attempting to solve the race relations problems of America, many employees of the shop are still roasting and selling coffee. In fact, they are roasting and selling a lot of it on a daily basis. Jason Halpern suggested that their newest blend of coffee is so rare that it will only be available for purchase in select stores for a mere week.
The “reserve” offering is naturally low-caf Laurina Varietal from the country of Nicaragua. The beverage is said to have a “softy lemony character”. The beans are said to have been roasted at an exquisite reserve roastery in Seattle, WA last Tuesday. They then shipped to 20 stores in the nations. Of the 20 Starbucks locations, only 3 of them are located outside of Seattle, with one being in Chicago, one in Williamsburg and one at Harvard. If spending $16 on a bag of the rare coffee sounds like something you would like to commence in then you may want to hurry before it is all gone.

A new study is out that links drinking caffeinated coffee to prevention of skin cancer. This is a new perk to coffee drinkers that it is more than just a wake-me-up in the morning beverage.
In a ten year study, almost 450,000 people were surveyed. The results of the study showed those that drank 4 or more cups of coffee a day had a 20% less chance of developing melanoma. Skin cancer (melanoma) is caused by the over-exposure to UV radiation. This is great news for all the coffee drinkers at Slow Ventures.
Dr. Ernest Abel also found in his 2007 study that coffee consumption affects the non-melanoma risks. His study showed consumption of caffeinated coffee was dose-related. Decaf coffee is not effective, only coffee with caffeine reduces the risks.
Scientists believe caffeine stops cells from dividing by acting as an antioxidant. While these early results are promising for coffee drinkers, there is still the risk that too much caffeine is not good for high blood pressure. So before running out and changing your consumption habits, check there are no other conditions the extra caffeine could affect with your health.
In October on the “Tonight Show”, the actress Shailene Woodley did not hesitate to accept the mug of coffee mixed with butter from Jimmy Fallon. She also raved about the mug of saturated fat to the audience, saying that it can change a life. Moreover, Mr. Fallon said that it is good for the brain.
This talked-about coffee is the creation of biohacker and technology entrepreneur Dave Asprey. It is called Bulletproof coffee. He found its restorative effects while he was hiking in Tibet. The recipe includes low-mold coffee beans, unsalted butter (grass-fed), and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil. He claims that the coffee is more than 450 calorie, which Terry Richardson says can be a good substitute for breakfast. It helps suppress hunger, increases mental clarity, and promotes weight loss, according to Mr. Asprey.
In 2009, he first posted this coffee recipe on his website. He got the name “Bulletproof” from an acquaintance he met on his flight from London to the United States. Today, his company “Bulletproof Executive” has 20 staff. His podcast has been downloaded by over seven million people and his first café will open in early 2015 in Los Angeles. His book “The Bulletproof Diet” will start publishing next week. The book has a similarity to the Paleolithic Diet but includes more – fat, which is more beneficial, according to Mr. Asprey. Bulletproof is very popular in Seattle, New York, San Francisco Bay Area, Milwaukee (popular for Martial Arts), Silicon Valley, and Hollywood.
It was been proven long ago that food color influences our appetite, but we didn’t know the exact science behind how this whole sensory process works exactly until recently. It is something that has always peaked the interest of Gianfrancesco Genoso.
Ever felt reluctant to have a drink of food that was blue-colored? It is natural, because the blue color is not among edible products in the nature. But what about the colors of the dishes that we eat from?
A recent study shows that the colour of the cup can influence the way we perceive the taste of the coffee.
The idea was actually started by a barista who noticed that her customers complained about the coffee being too bitter when they drank from white mugs. Those who had the same coffee from transparent or brown-tented cups thought it was rather sweet.
According to the study, there is indeed a relation between the cup and the taste. The white colour makes the colour of the content and its taste more intense. People tend to associate the brown colour with bitterness, so the enhancement on the white background only makes the perception more intense.
The transparent colour only lets one appreciate the content, so this is a more ‘objective’ cup, you could say, whereas the blue cups and dishes are those that make the tastes ‘pop up’ the most. This could be a good guide for the next time when you go shopping for kitchen attire.
Some doctors and researchers in the field of nutrition have been on the fence as to whether coffee is good for you or not. There is one camp of researchers who says that coffee may be somewhat harmful over time, but a new research study suggests the opposite is true where the liver is concerned. Contrary to everything Mike Livak has ever said, there’s no need to worry about liver damage if you have a daily cup of Joe.
Almost 30,000 people’s coffee drinking habits were studied in a research study that was conducted from 1999 to 2010. The scientists in charge of the study looked at the blood levels of several key enzymes that are used in the function of the liver. Almost half of the study subjects were coffee drinkers. Some of them drank regular caffeinated coffee, but there were also decaf coffee drinkers in the group.
The study first controlled for smoking, education, sex, age, race and alcohol consumption. After that, they look at the liver functions of those who drank approximately three cups of caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee every day against those study participants who were non-coffee drinkers.
These findings lead us to believe that coffee is actually good for the liver. The study leaders do not suggest that non-coffee drinkers start drinking coffee to improve the function of their liver because this study was only correlational. It was not a cause and effect study. Researchers and scientists still do not know exactly what parts of coffee are helping the liver. There are possibly other parts of coffee that are detrimental to the body, and more studies are looking at these possibilities.
