Light Roast or Dark?

coffee news

In the movie JAVA HEAT there is blatant product placement for Coke. In the scene shown, an innocent man is being interviewed in Java (the island), and he lifts his Coke three times to sip. All that’s missing is an “Ahhhhh…” By contrast, coffee is much better for you, health wise. So says Dr Bob Arnot in the new audiobook (which he narrates) THE COFFEE LOVERS DIET. He is a former medical correspondent for NBC, and got interested in researching coffee after getting up early every day to appear on camera with the benefit of the second most consumed beverage (after water.) Some surprises: Storing in fridge not recommended; light roast healthier than dark; high altitude equatorial better tasting and health (Kenya/Colombia/Ethiopia. Light roast also great for losing weight.) The coffee diet book includes recipes for paring with food. Other findings: Fine coffee is like fine wine. The region and production methods vary, and affect taste and quality. The roasting affects micronutrient levels. Good light roast beans ground just prior to drinking are ten times as healthy than buying dark roast pre ground…so long as the donuts are avoided. The science of coffee is a big part of the book, including studies his team conducted. BTW, baristas were once asked which coffee tastes best among pre ground in grocery stores, and answered Newman’s Own medium roast. Paul Newman product profits go to charity, too. A win/win. Books and coffee? Match made in heaven.
