What happens inside of your body
After drinking coffee[ 3 ]
15 minutes

Among the first displays you may find a higher heartbeat, higher blood pressure and energy boost. This is from a significant part caused by adenosine which is slowly influenced by caffeine. If you have trouble falling asleep it is because caffeine is disconnecting adenosine brain receptors. At the same time, it allows brain stimulants (dopamine, glutamine) to release their neurotransmitters. This is the main reason why you are so awake.

30 minutes

Thirty minutes after drinking a coffee our body starts to produce adrenaline which further boosts energy. Higher adrenaline causes air passages to widen and also improve blood flow in muscles. That is exactly why many athletes drink coffee before training. It helps them focus on their exercise and improves their ability to perform better.

45 minutes

Forty-five minutes after drinking a morning coffee you will come to life, even if you aren’t a morning person. Your mood gets better thanks to serotonin – a neurotransmitter responsible for mood regulation.

60 minutes

One hour after drinking a cup of coffee you should see a significant mood change. Caffeine creates your feeling of happiness while continuously increasing dopamine levels. No wonder, that in today’s modern world so many people are addicted to coffee.

3 hours

In reality, caffeine in coffee does not give you any energy. Thanks to it you only perceive tiredness on a lower level. After three hours from your last cup of coffee this effect starts to wear out.

6 hours

Despite the fact, that after six hours you no longer feel any effects of caffeine, your body is still processing it. At this stage, caffeine fuels kidneys to produce more urine and thus removing toxins from your body.

Commonly used
Coffee makers

They are divided into automatic and manual. The advantage of automatic espresso machines is simple operation and the speed at which you prepare your coffee. A high-quality machine with a grinder will prepare your coffee quickly and effortless. However, if you are a gourmet, a manual coffee machine will bring your espresso preparation to perfection.

French press10 - 60$

This is a cylinder-shaped object most commonly made of stainless steel or glass with a piston where a filter is situated. This way of coffee preparation dates way back to 1852. Its biggest advantage are very low costs and a relatively full taste of the end product.

Drip coffee maker20 - 100$

Probably the most widely used way of preparing coffee in America. Boiling water drips through a plastic strainer or through a paper filter filled with coffee and extracts the finest shades of taste and aroma. The important thing is to drink this coffee within 30 minutes, otherwise you will drink an old, evaporated infusion and not coffee.

Moka pot15 - 45$

A Moka pot is a three-piece pressure machine. In the bottom part – the chamber, water is cooked and the steam that is being produced is stretching and creates pressure which then pushes hot water through the middle part – the funnel filter, that contains coffee. The final coffee beverage, which is a bit similar to espresso but without the cream foam, is collected in the top part. Especially Italians love this way of coffee making.

Around the world
Espressoa shot of coffee

The basic ingredient of most coffee-based drinks is espresso. It’s a beverage of approximately 1 fl. oz. aromatic oils, acids, sugars, caramels and caffeine which coffee is made out of. These are extracted during a time period of 20-30 seconds, from ¼ oz. of freshly ground coffee.

Capuccinoespresso + milk + milk foam

A popular beverage, originally from Italy which consists of an espresso, and warm milk. The overall volume of the beverage is then 5-6 fl. oz. Cappuccino is served in wider pre-heated porcelain cups.

Americanoespresso + water

Americano as a coffee goes way back to the WW II when American soldiers didn’t like the taste of then too-strong espresso and diluted it with hot water. Espresso, the basis, is watered by hot water in an approximate 1:5 ratio. The total volume of an Americano is then more or less 6 fl. oz.

Café Lattéespresso + milk + milk foam

The beverage is a combination of an espresso and whipped micro-foam. Even though at first sight you might think of it as a cappuccino, the difference is in the volume. Café Latte has 9 fl. oz. and was created in 1950 when customers in Caffe Mediterraneum, California wanted Lino Meiorina, the owner, to add more milk into the cappuccino to make it softer. And that is how Caffé Latte was born.
