  2. Coffee Facts

    Cofffffeeeeee

     

    If you love coffee (who doesn’t), you should probably know about some of the science behind your favorite pick me up! Sure, it’s a great way to perk up when you need it most, but could you possibly become addicted to it? Here are the things you should know if you’re in a long-term relationship with caffeine.

    • Most energy drinks don’t contain as much caffeine as a Starbucks coffee. – Don’t believe anyone who tells you those expensive energy drinks have more bang than a cup of coffee. A 16-ounce Monster has about 150 milligrams of caffeine — half the amount of caffeine in a standard Starbucks grandé-sized coffee.
    • It’s really easy to get low-key addicted to coffee. – As little as 100 milligrams of caffeine daily is enough to get an adult hooked.
    • Coffee works crazy fast– It only takes 10 minutes for caffeine to kick in.
    • The S. consumes the most coffee per year. – Americans consume 400-million cups of coffee per day, which is basically 146-billion cups of coffee per year! SO. MUCH. COFFEE.
    • Coffee works best if you drink it between 9:30 and 11:30 – This is because the levels of cortisol (the hormone that controls your inner clock) drop and caffeine interacts with cortisol. If you drink coffee too early in the morning when your cortisol is high, you’ll build up a tolerance that will make you need more coffee to get the same effect.
    • Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a whole cantata about a girl who’s addicted to coffee.
    • There’s a reason coffee doesn’t taste as good as it smells. – It’s because you actually have two senses of smell: the smell that you inhale from the environment, and the burst of aroma that’s sent through the back of the nose from inside the mouth when you swallow (which actually accounts for 80% of what you taste).
