Having an Organic Coffee Moment……Mmmm…..I learnt to drink coffee when I came to Sweden 15 years ago… Now I LOVE it! A latte with oat milk using fresh ground organic coffee beans, frothed up and served in MY mug. It is not just the taste, it is the whole process around making the coffee that I enjoy at FIKA time…. … basically a time when you can sit down with a friend, whatever the mood and enjoy a beautiful cup of coffee, any way you want it, and discuss the meaning of Life! So, for me, it has a lot of healthy energy around the whole experience! Want to know if Coffee is good for you? Well there are number of supporting articles suggesting the health benefits. Full of antioxidants, masses of vitamins and minerals, sharpens the mind possibly reduces heart disease, maybe good for the liver, to highlight just a few. And there are of course a number of other articles suggesting the caffeine in coffee can cause anxiety and reduce the ability to sleep, can be addictive, creates an unbalance in the pH of your digestive system….. I believe we are all different and our unique personality and body types cause different reactions to all forms of nutrition. So to put my own concerns to one side I took a Standard Food Intolerance Test, which included testing for coffee and caffeine…. and lucky for me… at this time….. I do not have a coffee / caffeine intolerance! My common sense tells me, to drink in a balanced way (for me thats one cup a day) and as long as the energy keeps flowing, my sleep is not disturbed and I can continue to discuss the meaning of Life with my friends…. I am Happy Latte Lover!
