For the LOVE of COFFEE

This is the usual question asked by my mother in-law every time I visited her in her house.Well, my answer is straight "YES, I would love too."
I was not coffee drinker before, but then I started to love coffee when lots of coffee shops were booming in my city and I could not help myself to try coffee. After that experience I started to go out with my buddies and my Korean students and have cup of coffee, three times a week of even like every night we go out for coffee.

But is coffee really good or not for our health? Though we often don’t want to admit to it, coffee can be considered both good and bad for ones health. On the other hand, there are many benefits to drinking coffee. One is that it is a natural antidepressant and can elevate your mood. Another is that drinking your daily cup can help you relax. The disadvantages of drinking coffee are that it is very acidic and has a high caffeine content. This means you can get heartburn and end up with an elevated blood pressure if you drink too much.

If you are finding yourself having acid issues when drinking coffee,there are many brands of low acid coffee beans. These may be exactly what you are looking for! They often have 50% of the acid of regular coffee allowing you to enjoy your cup of java everyday without issues!

But, thinking some of the disadvantages of drinking coffee I have been trying to wean myself off of coffee lately. I thought it might be a good time to replace my morning cup 'o' joe with a nice healthy cup of tea now that the weather has cooled. The only problem is that I LOVE COFFEE! I love the aroma of fresh brewed coffee, the taste but especially the smell of fresh whole beans. I LOVE COFFEE.
