This is my first post after creating my very own blog.......so kind of excited :). As this is my first article, I thought, since I start my day with coffee why not enlighten everyone about it. Like me, I am sure there are many individuals who cannot start there day without a cup of coffee. Yesterday night I was watching Discovery where I came to know some surprising facts about coffee. I used to think that having more than a cup of coffee is not good for health, but that program proved me wrong. Having 2 to 3 cups of coffee is in fact good because it contains natural antioxidants like poly phenols which is also present in grape juice and which is very good for skin(Anti-aging). The main ingredient of the coffee is Caffeine (the main reason for which some people have it too) which is also a natural component of chocolate and tea , and is used as an added energy boost in most colas and energy drinks. It’s also found in diet pills and some over-the-counter pain relievers and medicines. Because of the caffeine content, coffee is also good in reducing risk of Parkinson's, Alzheimer, Diabetes, Colon Cancer etc.
Personally i think that everything is good in moderation.
Results of some studies Coffee even offsets some of the damage caused by other vices, some research indicates. "People who smoke and are heavy drinkers have less heart disease and liver damage when they regularly consume large amounts of coffee compared to those who don't," says DePaulis.
Of course I don't support the statement above...................
There's also some evidence that coffee may help manage asthma and even control attacks when medication is unavailable, stop a headache, boost mood, and even prevent cavities.

There are various types of coffee, but what a lot of people do not know is that the most expensive one is an animal coffee called Kopi Luwak. Kopi Luwak gourmet coffee actually passes completely through the digestive tract of the exotic Indonesian Palm Civet (Luwak) without being digested by the animal. Though the process of making this coffee is disgusting, I am really amazed with it's growing popularity. I can't even imagine how someone can think of trying this coffee (some have described this as a poopy coffee). Of course, I really don't see the need behind having such a expensive (and eeeeewwwww!!!).............
There are lots of other types of animal coffee - Monkey, Weasel, Bird,........
