San Antonio's Best Brew - Local Coffee Showcase

Anonymous | Updated 03/24/2021 12:00pm


It is a fact that the U.S. loves their coffee.  A recent survey shows that coffee ranks as the 3rd most consumed beverage in America, just behind soda (2nd) and water (1st).  Legend has it that coffee dates back to 800 A.D.  A goat herder noticed his goats 'dancing' after eating the fruit of the Coffea plant.  A local monk then make a drink with the produce and it kept him up all night.  Coffee was born!

As if you need a reason, there are some real benefits to consuming coffee. In an article posted on Healthline.com, coffee improves energy levels, helps you burn fat, contains essential nutrients, reduces your risk of Type 2 Diabetes and may protect you from serious health conditions such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Dementia.  Now, let's insert a big 'BUT' right here -- be mindful of all the extras you put in your coffee (syrups, sweetened creamers and processed sugars).  Some healthier alternatives include coconut milk, almond milk, monk fruit and honey.

Here are a few statistics on coffee that you may find interesting:

There are over 200 species of coffee beans, but the two main beans that are the most widely produced and sold are Arabica and Robusta.  Arabica is the most common.  Robusta is more bitter, but it contains more caffeine

Is it possible to overdose on coffee.  You would have to drink 30 cups in a very short period of time to get close to a lethal dose of caffeine

64% of American adults consume coffee every day

Americans drink about 146 billion cups of coffee per year 

66% of women drink coffee every day, compared to 62% of men

__________

Did you Know?  Salt might be one of the best ways to make your coffee taste better.  The reason is it helps neutralize the bitter and acidic flavors in coffee.  Weird, but true!  Just don't put too much.

__________

72% of coffee drinkers take their coffee with dairy or non-dairy creamer, which means 28% drink their coffee black

30% sweeten their coffee with sugar or some other form of sweetener  (I would have thought this would be higher)

Coffee represents 75% of all the caffeine consumed in the United States

 

So where can I get myself a darn good cup of coffee here in the Alamo City?
