Caffeine is a stimulant that can reach its full effect within 30 to 75 minutes after administration, or a better word, consumption, and usually lasts about 3 to 4 hours. Most of the world’s coffee is grown within the Bean Belt, the area around the equator between the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer. This region includes parts of Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Coffee beans develop inside a “cherry” that grows from plants, and after roasting, flavored oils are applied to coffee beans for those unique flavors.
OK I see but what can coffee do for me in the bedroom?
Well in the bedroom/room of your choice/public spaces (though we don’t condone this since that is actually illegal in some areas), coffee can help improve your sex life, for those participating in such activities. It can definitely improve your overall performance as opposed to four of five shots of whiskey, hint hint. The hard truth is ‘YES it can’, and to keep it PG we’ll leave it at that for now.
But seriously, what else can you tell me about coffee?
I’ve recommended to some clients that if you feel addicted to coffee, or are drinking several cups a day to avoid getting headaches, it’s a good time to decrease the amount of coffee little by little so that you can go a day or two without feeling withdrawal.
Another important note is that coffee is acidic, so it is a very good idea to eat some bread (preferably whole wheat) or something before going for that smooth roast so that your stomach lining doesn’t get roasted. Also, and this should be obvious, a glass or two of regular ole water.
It’s the whole process of making coffee. While I don’t grow my own beans in the backyard, I like waking up and smelling fresh grounds, whether they are native, flavored, light, or dark roasted. I use a Kyusa, which is a traditional Japanese teapot made of fired volcanic clay. If it seems like the day might be gritty, I’ll let it steep for about 9 minutes, letting the taste turn bitter and harsh. But if a smooth day is ahead, then a standard 5 to 7 minute steep for a light and airy cup is just fine. I enjoy brewing my own but also don’t mind getting a cup from D.D.’s or something fancy-schmancy from the local coffee elite palace shops, hahaha.
For so long now, my usual breakfast has been five eggs, a few slices of bread, and a cup of coffee. Of course, this would not happen in Italy, as the drinking of the espresso is given its own time due to the fact that it is considered a separate event.
Which is true?
Coffee can help you win the lotto?
YES! There are 8,145,060 possible lotto combinations, and coffee can help you stay awake while you fill out each ticket.
Coffee can help you lose weight?
True! Coffee contains magnesium and potassium, which helps the human body use insulin, thereby regulating blood sugar levels and reducing your craving for sweets and snacks.
Coffee can help save relationships?
Uhm, well True. Dark roast coffee decreases breakage in DNA strands, which occur naturally but can lead to cancer or tumors if not repaired by your cells.
Maybe after these broken strands are fixed you will have the power to read minds thereby being more successful in relationships.
Coffee is a substitute for working out regularly in the gym.
False, why would you think this is true, nothing beats hard work and consistency in regards to accomplishments with learning.
With only a few drops left, I scanned the area, noting the few remaining tasks in the room. It was already late and a light sense of rain tapped across my senses. Fortunately, the rain never came, but the list of several duties I had earlier chosen not to yield to did. Some odd feeling of dread overcame me as I slumped down into my chair, enjoying the cool breeze from the nearby fan at the end of a hot day that had my shirt’s back stuck on me since two hours past dawn.
My conversations with other people seem entertaining and energetic, but my own internal conversations were short and what some might even call cruel; “Get up, put away your things and go straight home, you lazy bastard,” is what I told myself. So I followed thru, forgetting my own laziness as usual, and finished the standard tasks, wondering if I could finish this whole year acknowledging the importance of getting one small task done every day. I had picked up 200 grams of grounded Kape Kulaman coffee and steeped it a bit longer than necessary in a clay Kuyasa with a teaspoon of muscovado.
What other foods contain caffeine beside coffee?
- Cocoa beans
- Kola nut: Indigenous to West Africa, this fruit is a common flavoring for soda, and each nut, which some people chew, has more caffiene than two large cups.
- Tea leaves: Black, green, and white teas are all made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant.
- Guarana: A plant native to the Amazon that stimulates the central nervous system, heart, and muscles, mostly used in energy supplements.
- Yerba Mate: a tea made from leaves and figs, dried over fire, steeped in hot water, and drunk thru a metat straw.
- Oreo: Yea, I know, crazy, but one oreo has about 1.3 milligrams of caffeine, and one oreo with milk contains the exact same amount, so don’t get any
