A lot of people enjoy the taste and aroma of luxury coffee, and they may even appreciate the energy lift caffeine affords them. But for whatever reason, the coffee they drink doesn’t act kindly on their digestive system.
Luckily, these unfortunate effects can be avoided by drinking coffee properly prepared. Below are a few tips discussing how to make espresso gentle on the tummy.
Machines Are Not Your Friends
How do you make your coffee in the morning? Are you using an espresso machine at home or in the office? Believe it or not, this might be the cause your digestive distress.
Truth be told, coffee machines degrade over time due regular use. What does this mean exact? Well, the natural oils for your coffee bean coat the inside of the machine. Layer upon layer, these oils accumulate over time. As you might expect, these oils turn rancid – and that rancid residue melts and gets mixed into your daily dose of coffee. Yuck! Unsurprisingly, consuming these acidic oils can cause gastric problems. And who wants that?
Even worse, coffee machines can harbor a litany of harmful bacteria. The University of Valencia found E.coli and other microbial communities lurking in popular coffee machines. If you think coffee or espresso might be giving you tummy troubles, it might be time to nix your mechanical coffee maker.
Why Water Makes the Difference
Of course, acidity natural occurs in coffee beans without turning rancid, and is responsible for a coffee’s “bright” taste. But for folks with sensitive stomachs, this might still be too much. Thankfully, there is a solution that is easy on digestion.
Espresso coffee capsules from Caffè di Artisan are made with alkaline water. The term “alkaline” refers to the water’s pH level, which runs on a spectrum from zero (very acidic) to 14 (very alkaline). Normal drinking water sits on a neutral pH of 7, while alkaline water has a greater pH (usually 8 or 9).
What does this mean for coffee drinkers? Well, the alkaline water used in Caffè di Artisan coffee pods neutralizes the natural acidity found in coffee; which means less tummy troubles for coffee lovers! Not to mention that Caffè di Artisan eschews all preservatives and chemicals. That’s right, your liquid coffee elixir contains only premium, gourmet coffee and pure, alkaline water.
Research also supports the idea that alkaline water provides a plethora of health benefits including immune system support, cancer resistance, improved hydration, and skin health.
The Health Benefits of Coffee
Speaking of health benefits, there are a number of advantages to drinking coffee. Enhanced metabolism, improved memory and cognition, lower risk of type II diabetes and certain forms of cancer are among the numerous health benefits associated with coffee, as supported by scientific research.
Keep in mind, however, that everyone’s digestive environment is different. Some people may be able to tolerate whole milk lattes, while others can’t digest the lactose. Be sure to listen to the signals your body is sending you to ensure a happy tummy.
