According to an American Chemical Society study over one thousand volatile compounds have been identified in coffee. Approximately 40 of these components have been demonstrated to contribute to the actual smell and aroma of coffee

Caffeine and cardiovascular disease risk factors

The majority of prospective cohort studies looking at coffee/caffeine consumption did not find any adverse effect of coffee/caffeine consumption on cardiovascular function.

here was no association between caffeine consumption and #arrhythmias, #aatrialfibrillation and cardiac variability showing that there is no need to abstain from caffeine in those populations.

In the case of #heartfailure and #coronaryheartdisease, studies have focused on coffee and hence constituents of coffee other than caffeine might be involved in the positive effects observed on these pathologies.

Moderate #coffee consumption is inversely associated with risk of heart failure, with the largest inverse association observed for consumption of 4 cups per day. Likewise coffee consumption does not increase the long-term risk of coronary heart disease and seems even to lower it in women.

About 1885, a process by which natural gas heats a roasting chamber and hot air is the only heating medium was developed, and this remains the best and most popular method of roasting #coffee.

Caffeine and Bone Health

Caffeine intake has often been associated with an increased risk of #osteoporotic fracture and despite weak evidence it is often suggested that women should limit their caffeine intake in order to minimize risk.

The majority of reports available failed to find any significant effects of caffeine on #bonedensity. A review of 32 observational studies performed in 2002 indicated no overall negative effect of caffeine on bone health.

Potentially negative effects on bone mineral density were recorded mainly in populations with insufficient calcium intake or very high #coffee consumption (over 9 cups daily). In fact, there is no evidence that caffeine has any harmful effects on bone or calcium status in subjects who ingest the recommended daily amounts of calcium.

Current data is insufficient to reach a convincing conclusion and further research needs to be conducted.

Caffeine Abstinence

A 2008 systematic review, including randomised trials, suggests that caffeine abstinence for a whole day could improve sleep quality and could be recommended by health practitioners when giving sleep hygiene advice.

In one trial, caffeine abstinence significantly lengthened sleep duration and improved sleep quality.

In another trial, subjects had less difficulty falling asleep on days when they drank decaffeinated #coffee.

A regular 6 oz cup of #coffee contains about 150 milligrams of caffeine, most physicians call this a “therapeutic dose”.

Caffeinated Beverages and Urinary Excretion

In a study investigating the effect of #coffee drinking on urine excretion, researchers observed a significant increase in the volume of urine excreted among those who drank coffee, compared to those who drank the same volume of water.

A 41% increase in 24-hour urine excretion was observed when the participants were given six cups of coffee (642mg of caffeine).

However, the subjects abstained from foods and beverages containing caffeine for five days prior to treatment, effectively making them ‘caffeine naive’. In these circumstances, a more pronounced effect of caffeine-containing drinks, like coffee, is to be expected.

Caffeinated Beverages and Fluid Intake

On the initiative of a group of scientists, a Beverage Guidance Panel was set up in US, with the objective of systematically reviewing the literature on beverages, and providing guidance to consumers. As far as caffeinated beverages are concerned, the Panel states that caffeine consumption of up to 500mg/day (the equivalent amount found in approximately 5 regular cups of coffee) does not cause dehydration.

A paper reporting on a conference in North America advises consumers that drinking a variety of caffeinated beverages, including #coffee, can contribute to meeting the body’s requirement for fluids.

A mature #coffee plant yields about 5 pounds of green (unroasted) coffee beans per year. That results in less than one pound of #coffeebeans after roasting. It takes about 4,000 coffee beans to produce a pound of coffee and roughly 50 beans to produce one cup of coffee.
