Coffee is slightly acidic and can have a stimulating effect on humans because of its caffeine content. Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It can be prepared and presented in a variety of ways (e.g., espresso, French press, cafe latte, etc.). It is usually served hot, although iced coffeeis an alternative way of the drink to be served. Clinical studies indicate that moderate coffee consumption is benign or mildly beneficial in healthy adults, with continuing research on whether long-term consumption inhibits cognitive decline during aging or lowers the risk of some forms of cancer.

About it

Mexican coffee

Mexico is one of the largest coffee-producing countries in the world, and the largest producer of organic coffee, accounting for 60% of world production in 2000. The vast majority of Mexican coffee, and particularly organic coffee, is grown by small farmers in the southern-most states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. These two states also happen to be the poorest in the country, and not coincidentally, have the largest indigenous populations. Coffee is one of Mexico's most lucrative exports and close to half a million small farmers and their families rely on the crop for their economic survival.

Can help you

There's a good reason why you will find caffeine in most commercial fat burning supplements.Caffeine, partly due to its stimulant effect on the central nervous system, both raises metabolism and increases the oxidation of fatty acids. 



Caffeine can also improve athletic performance by several mechanisms, including by mobilizing fatty acids from the fat tissues. In two separate meta-analyses, caffeine was found to increase exercise performance by 11-12% on average.

More benefits


Not only can coffee make you smarter in the short term, it may also protect your brain in old age.Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder in the world and a leading cause of dementia.In prospective studies, coffee drinkers have up to a 60% lower risk of Alzheimer's and dementia. Parkinson's is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by death of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain. Coffee may lower the risk of Parkinson's by 32-60%

Coffe isn't just black water

Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals.A cup of coffee contains: 

  • 6% of the RDA for Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
  • 11% of the RDA for Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
  • 2% of the RDA for Niacin (B3) and Thiamine (B1)
  • 3% of the RDA for Potassium and Manganese

May not seem like much, but if you drink several cups of coffee per day then this quickly adds up.But this isn't all. Coffee also contains a massive amount of antioxidants.In fact, coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants in the western diet, outranking both fruits and vegetables combined.
