Wake Up and Smell the Coffee Posted On 18 October 2021

Sip your Favourite Beverage this Coffee Week

 

The UK’s Coffee week begins on Monday 18th October this year and is a period where coffee shops, restaurants, roasters, and their customers come together to raise funds for Project Waterfall – a charity working to end the water crisis in coffee-growing communities across the world. By investing in sustainable projects, Project Waterfall brings a source of clean drinking water, sanitation, and education to coffee-growing communities across the world.

 

Coffee is delicious, there’s no denying it, but there other less well-known benefits to coffee you should be aware of.

  • It can improve energy levels and reaction times.
  • Coffee can help you burn fat as it boosts your metabolic rate.
  • Coffee can improve your physical performance – why not try a cup before you head to the gym and see how you fare?
  • Coffee includes main essential nutrients.
  • Some studies how coffee may lower your risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Several studies show that coffee drinkers have a 65% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • The caffeine is coffee has been shown to lower your risk of developing Parkinson’s.
  • Coffee may also protect against liver cirrhosis.

 

The key to life is always moderation so whilst moderate coffee consumption comes with many health benefits, drinking too much of this delicious elixir wouldn’t be a good idea. Drinking too much coffee can cause you to feel anxious, lead to digestive issues and increase your chance of insomnia.

 

So, if you’re out and about and fancy a cappuccino, a flat white, a macchiato, or a chai latte this week, why not try to source one from a business who has signed up to support Project Waterfall?
