Happy Friday Morning! 😁
Let's talk about coffee!
I LOVE coffee, a dark black cup of java is definitely my morning jam. Any other coffee lovers out there? 😊
Coffee isn't inherently bad for you. It has many benefits.
☕It's really high in antioxidants! Did you know that studies show coffee consumption provides MORE antioxidants in the Standard American Diet than fruits and veggies?! (😱)
☕Coffee contains *some* vitamins and minerals like the B's, potassium and magnesium - not a huge amount but hey they are still there! ;)
☕It contains caffeine which can boost brain function and mood 🙌 ☕Caffeine is actually the most consumed psychoactive in THE WORLD! 👉With many benefits it does have some downfalls depending on usage and consumer.
☕Coffee can cause anxiety if consumed in large amounts or in people who are sensitive to caffeine.
☕Depending on the human, coffee may disrupt sleep - it is a stimulant. ☕Caffeine is addictive and can lead to withdrawals like headaches and moodiness. Caffeine actually constricts blood vessels in the brain, slowing blood flow. When you stop consuming it blood flow speeds up which is a cause of headaches. Which is interesting because caffeine is actually used to help alleviate headaches in some people!
🤔So to drink or not to drink? Well for people who have anxiety, insomnia or high blood pressure I wouldn't recommend drinking too much coffww. For those who can tolerate caffeine, I definitely would not recommend taking away your precious coffee. I however do ask that you get more antioxidants from fruits and veggies than coffee! 😜🥕🍎🍆🍓
☕ Best way to drink coffee is black. If you do use sugar, try weening off the sugar to enjoy the wonderful taste of coffee.
Adding Ceylon cinnamon to coffee is great as it helps reduce blood sugar spikes.
Like everything the pros/cons of coffee consumption depends on the wonderful human who is consuming it 😊
Beebs got me this for my birthday. She had my mom read the sayings on all the mugs so she could pick one out. She chose this one. I don’t always feel this way. To be honest, I feel this way almost never. But she chose this one and quite frankly, in the realm of whether or not I’m a good mom, her opinion is the only one that matters. Enjoy your babies this weekend, mommas, and let’s stop being so hard on ourselves and each other. ✌🏻
Coffee and tea contain caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant. If you drink dark, concentrated versions caffeine can transfer to your baby through breast milk causing irritability and sleep disturbances. You want to avoid this by all means. If you love your coffee or tea choose the lighter versions and don’t drink more than 1-2 times a day. This content is only for general information purposes .

Costa Rica Terrazu Hot Springs Dark Roast
Flavor: Cocoa, Nutty, Stone Fruit
The essence of our Terrazu Hot Springs coffee is derived from its unique processing method. The process starts at its peak ripeness. The coffee is then delivered to the San Diego wet mill for further processing.
In the mill the coffee undergoes a patented fermentation process with volcanic mineral water. During the fermentation process, the thermal spring water and wet parchment interact in a unique symbiosis. The hot water accelerates and enhances the mucilage removal resulting in a superior cup clarity and the natural minerals are absorbed by the coffee.
In the cup, the minerals absorbed and natural acids from the coffee create a wonder and complex experience. The coffee flavors are emblematic of a Terrazu, but with singular spicy notes such as pepper and black currant.
