5 reasons to care more about the coffee you drink

Many of us drink coffee throughout the day to help sustain our energy levels, even if we know that it’s going to backfire later on in the evening. The effects of caffeine come with many helpful benefits, but also downsides that we should always keep in mind before chugging another cup.

But have you ever stopped to think about the coffee you drink, or do you just buy whatever’s cheapest or available? In this article, we’re going to go a little more in-depth about the coffee you drink and give you 5 reasons to care more about the type of coffee you drink.

1. The Caffeine Content

One of the first things to think about when you purchase coffee is the caffeine content. The caffeine you get from a frappuccino is going to be a lot different to the filter coffee you get at work or even the instant coffee you might drink occasionally. A quick check of the caffeine content in certain coffee drinks will give you an idea of how much you’re actually getting from stores and brands, but the general idea is to remember that every cup of coffee has a different amount of caffeine.

2. The Price Savings

People drink coffee for different reasons. Some people drink it just for the caffeine boost, others drink it as a treat because they love the complex taste and some are enthusiasts that enjoy making their own blends. By understanding the coffee on a deeper level, you can make some serious price savings by doing your research and buying the beans that best represent what you want out of the coffee.

3. The Origin

The origin of the coffee that you drink has a profound impact on the taste. If you’re not well-versed in coffee origins then this might be difficult to understand at first. For example, a single origin coffee mean that the beans only came from a single location whereas blends mix different types of beans to create a unique taste that is a trademark taste of the brand. Similarly, coffee from Ethiopia is known for its brighter and floral flavours whereas beans from Costa Rica are known for their brown-sugar sweetness and citrusy notes.

4. The Different Flavours

If you consider your coffee as a treat, then you can create some wonderful flavours by combining coffees from different regions with flavourings. They’re a fantastic choice for an after-dinner drink and you’ll get to explore some of the many different types of coffee-based drinks. This can include mocha drinks, latte, or even homemade frappuccino-style drinks with your own favourite flavours. 

5. The Knowledge

Coffee can be a fantastic topic to break the ice when you’re talking to friends and co-workers, but the knowledge is also great if you ever want to visit smaller coffee shops that know their stuff and have a wide range of excellent drinks for you to try. Whether it’s talking about the origin of the beans, the flavour profile or even just some random facts, the knowledge from coffee can have some unique uses.
