Decaf Coffee Capsules and Health

Decaf Coffee Capsules and Health

Coffee is a miracle liquid. But is it good for you?

There are two big concerns: not getting enough sleep and nasty chemicals in decaf.

And when you've got a coffee capsule machine, it's way too easy to make more coffee and to drink too much. So you're either being kept up all night, or you're drinking a decaf with something sketchy in it. Or are you?

Decaf and nasty chemicals

Making decaf coffee used to involve solvent to soak the coffee beans in order to make the decaf coffee.

Some suggested that people who were consuming decaffeinated coffee were absorbing these solvents into their bodies. Some individuals even went so far regarding recommend that drinking decaffeinated coffee resulted in cancer.

Leaving the beans to soak in a solvent was deemed unhealthy, so many people stuck with regular coffee even if it kept them up at night. They traded the idea of drinking something lower in stimulants for drinking caffeinated coffee, simply because they were afraid of the chemicals used in the decaffeination procedure.

There are now much better ways of getting rid of the caffeine from the beans. One new approach is the Swiss water process, which is the method used by Moving Beans. The water naturally removes the caffeine, leaving beans that are low in caffeine and not filled with unhealthy chemicals.

A cup of decaf coffee just has 3 milligrams of caffeine and because caffeine has no color, flavor or odor, there's no reason why you can not enjoy a cup of coffee any time and still be able to get to sleep at night.

Getting enough sleep

Getting enough good quality sleep is essential for a strong immune system, preventing weight gain, muscle recovery after intense exercise, better mood, productivity, and better memory and focus.

A lack of sleep can adversely affect cardiovascular health and can also increase risk of neurodegenerative diseases.

We all need it. Getting your 8 hours every night is essential and we can certainly tell the difference when we're well rested compared to a bad night with little or interrupted sleep.

So in my humble opinion, it's best to enjoy coffee only in the morning. A lungo shot from our Reserve Blend capsules, or our Ethiopian Single Origin capsules are some personal favourites. For any coffee drinking later in the day, or an after-dinner espresso, it's best to stick with Decaf.

Later in the afternoon, even though it can be tempting, we find it's best to avoid caffeinated drinks to make sure we can get good sleep and be well rested.

I know there are some die-hard fans of coffee that would choose anything over decaf coffee, but give it a try and we promise you won't be disappointed. Our decaf Nespresso compatible capsules are made with 100% Colombian Arabica beans, cleanly decaffeinated using the Swiss-water process. Decaf in name, but not in taste - awesome flavour with citrus and floral tasting notes, but no tossing and turning until 3AM!

We also wrote about how decaf coffee can also be an excellent alternative for pregnant women!
