Where ever there is a "good cup of Joe", you will notice that it seems to be a motivator for people or a relaxing "me time". Being an avid coffee drinker, whether it's temperature is hot or cold; I would definitely state it's my preferred choice of beverage. Everyone drinks it differently, for example: some drink it black or sweetened along with some form of cream. Either way, coffee has left its beans and aroma mapped throughout Regions.

Coffee is served in all restaurants, gas stations, events, coffee shops, homes, hotels, businesses and gatherings everywhere. It's a favored drink in the mornings or anytime a person desires. Location is not an essence in order to drink their special java, only to have a full cup in hand.

There are a variety of flavors, decaffeinated, original and even your choice of special roast blends. Coffee comes in all sizes and forms but to an avid drinking it's all savoring the taste.

Nothing says, "Good Morning", then a commendable cup of Java C(_). All kinds of humanities use it in their daily routines as an eye opener to an early bird or a highly demand energy boost. The aroma alone lingers through out the home, mean while the percolating atmosphere is invigorating to our senses. Many of us through out the region sit down with a steamy cup of Joe in front of us. While the taste is so delightful one sip at a time, our bodies are slowly benefiting from the creations of beans.

What are the benefits of Coffee?

At this point, you might be asking yourself how coffee can have any health benefits. I believe that you'll find it interesting to know, through my research what these benefits include:

5 Lower Risk Factors-with moderate daily consumption.

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Lung and Breast Cancer
  • Type 2 Diabetics
  • Liver Disease
  • Parkinson's Disease

The Key to health benefits of coffee is to know the quality of it. The darker the roast, the better it is for you. For example: French or Italian in organic whole bean (smells & taste fresh). Drink it Black. Make sure pure water is used in brewing along with unbleached filters in the drip machines.

Percentages Of Lower Risk

Cardiovascular Disease
Lung & Breast Cancer
Type2 Diabetics
Liver Disease
Parkinson's Disease
38%
25%

Keep in mind, heavy caffeine use of 4 or more cups will cause restlessness, anxiety, sleeplessness and irritability in individuals.

Whether you prefer hot or cold, remember that keen conversation starts with a single cup. I know through numerous cups in my life time, I still enjoy the flavors, aroma and many gatherings that it is a popular choice of beverage. A portion fancy it in the morning, mid-day booster, accompanied by a special dessert or in the evening as you guess it by now " me time". Those percentages that I listed in the table were from articles that I read. As for the benefits; we perceive that medically it's still a working study. End result, coffee lovers everywhere will still continue to sip on their choice of blends and take in every last drop. Some that know me, would call me a java addict but I simply reply, " I sincerely relish every swallow of it ". Signing off _ java talk...

      thank you carnoobz for your comments and vote. To answer your question, why you choose white, it's because you drink black coffee with cream. C(_) cheers.

      Voted interesting, beautiful, and awesome. Why?

      COFFEE! THAT'S WHY!

      I voted for "white", but I have no idea. I don't even drink the good stuff anymore. My mom in law buys instant and flavored creamer, so that's what I drink now. It took some getting used to, but now when I go Starbucks I barely drink half of it...too strong.
