Why you shouldn't worry that your morning cup will harm your health or shorten your life.

 

Updating the Evidence

 

In decades past, experts repeatedly warned that a coffee habit could harm health and shorten lives.

 

And, indeed, the new study did find that when the data were adjusted only for age, the risk of death was greater among coffee drinkers.

 

But when the researchers took into account other health-related characteristics among the participants, like smoking, alcohol use, meat consumption, physical activity and body mass index, those who regularly drank coffee lived longer...

Perdomo announced in July that they would be releasing the 20th Anniversary line at this years IPCPR in Orlando, Florida.

 

Their 10th Anniversary line is one that I am very fond of in both the Champagne and Champagne Noir style, so hearing that the new 20th Anniversary would be released soon was something that interested me greatly.

 

When I was at the show at Orlando I was lucky enough to get a sample of both the Maduro and the Sun Grown version of the new Perdomo 20th Anniversary.

The Art of Espresso | Addicted To Caffeine and Smoke While Online | Scoop.it
Espresso’s authentic formula: perfection hangs in the balance.

 

The name says all: an espresso is to be freshly prepared and enjoyed immediately. Expressly.

 

 

 

 

 

 For coffee purists, espresso is the quintessential coffee preparation – rich, aromatic and velvety all at once; a natural layer of crema on top belying a full-bodied, yet deftly balanced liquid below.

 

When ideally realized, a small miracle of chemistry and physics: science and art gliding together on air...

Lavazza - Coffee Passion - Advertising - Advertising History

Lavazza - Coffee Passion - Advertising - Advertising History...

 

Lavazza has always been my favorite coffee brand.

 

The first thing you notice is a divine taste of a coffee, but beside that, Lavazza has always been a company with an innovative approach to advertising.

 

The brand image strategies applied by the company during its early years were pioneering for Italy, even at that time.

 

Then came the real advertising era, when Emilio Lavazza joined the company and met Armando Testa, one of the pioneers of Italian advertising.

 

Their collaboration began in 1958 with the Paulista campaign, and has moved from the old last millennium into the new, encompassing every possible style and artistic trend.

 

Starting with the first Lavazza-branded bags, the TV commercials of the early "Paradiso" campaign, and the collaborations with leading photographers on the international Lavazza Calendars, the history of Lavazza communication tells of the unique understanding between an inspired, forward-thinking client and a creative, equally innovative supplier.

 

The result is a successful coexistence between two completely different genres: traditional Italian comedy as represented in the Paradiso campaign, and the international reach of the stylish Calendar campaigns.

 

I have a certain feelings for this brand.

 

This coffee help me a lot to conquer long nights behind a PC,also I use to owned a coffee bar here in Croatia with exclusive franchise on Lavazza.

 

This coffee is best prepared on professional espresso machine and if you want a franchise you need to attend their special training altogether with your staff.

 

They teach you exactly how to get the most out of their product and how to prepare the best possible coffee for your customers.

Coffee is Four Barrel's love and the future be damned. Not to shabby Internet marketers either since their rules poster has appeared around the world on millions of blogs and Facebook pages now.

Marijo's insight:

Got to say that I use to own couple of espresso machines like this one over the years and all I can tell is that is making a perfect espresso.

 

This particular coffee maker is made in a retro style design and can be a great addition to your kitchen decor.

 

If you don't want to loose time on preparing your coffee this is a perfect coffee machine for you. By using the ESE pods you can make your first morning coffee in a less than a 3-4 minutes.

 

Heating of the coffee maker is a less than 2 min. once is switched on and all you need to do is to put the ESE pod in the handle and press the button. Wonderful espresso will start to pour in your coffee glass and it is up to you how long or short your espresso will be.This espresso machine can also use the ground espresso coffee for brewing and that is a great feature. Ground espresso is less expensive than ESE pods.

 

An E.S.E. pod, or Easy Serving Espresso Pod, is a single-serving paper pouch filled with premeasured finely ground coffee. E.S.E pods are produced by all the large roasters in Italy, as well as many other roasters around the world. E.S.E. pods are convenient, fast and easier to clean, with no measuring, no grinding, no mess—just a consistently delicious shot of espresso, every time.

 

My opinion is that this is a great coffee machine considering the price. Benefit of having the espresso coffee maker in your home  is that you can save on time and money on those days when you just don't want to get out of the house only to get a great cup of coffee.

Is Hookah Smoking Less Harmful than Cigarette Smoking? - Forbes

Is Hookah Smoking Less Harmful than Cigarette Smoking? - Forbes | Addicted To Caffeine and Smoke While Online | Scoop.it
hookah (Photo credit: preetamrai) Hookah bars and cafes have been popping up more frequently throughout the US, promoted as a recreational and social activity that is potentially safer than cigarette smoking.

 

 Interesting alternative for passionate smokers!

 

Unfortunately, based on recent research and available evidence, smoking from a hookah pipe is not safer than cigarette smoking.

 

It is actually more harmful in many respects.

 

A hookah is essentially a water pipe with an integrated smoke chamber, attached to a large bowl with a small hose attachment.

 

As a special form of tobacco is heated, the smoke passes through water in a confined chamber to cool it, and then moves through a hose attached to a mouthpiece.

 

The water within the hookah in no way acts as a filter for the toxic components in the tobacco smoke, and the tobacco in a hookah pipe is just as toxic as tobacco contained in a standard cigarette.

 

It turns out that hookah smokers may actually inhale larger volumes of tobacco smoke–in part, as a result of inhaling deeper, and smoking for longer periods of time (up to 60 minutes a session)...

Prepare genuine, Italian moka coffee right at home...

 

In Italy, ordering a Caffe Moka is quite different from, say, calling for a Mocha coffee in America.

 

To sound alike is not to taste alike, coffee-style. For making moka, the chocolate syrup is nowhere in sight.

 

Small, two-chambered moka pots sit on many Italian stovetops, easy to use and producing a full-bodied coffee, rich in aroma.

 

Many have an hourglass shape, but you can find moka pots in a variety of styles, all based on the same operating principle.

 

Water is heated in a lower chamber. Vapor pressure approaching two atmospheres pushes the water up through ground coffee in a filter, which collects in the upper chamber as liquid coffee...

The Benefits of Coffee

The Benefits of Coffee | Addicted To Caffeine and Smoke While Online | Scoop.it

 

"Coffee: a drink for Mind, Spirit and Body"...

 

Although I personally prefer "Lavazza" when it comes to drinking coffee, "Illy" is probably the best coffee brand in the world.

 

Both coffee brands are leaders in the industry and I always have them at disposal at my house.

It is a real pleasure preparing and drinking such a wonderful coffee.

 

Over the past two centuries, few substances have been as extensively studied as coffee. The benefits of coffee and its main active compound, caffeine, have been demonstrated time and again.

 

Recognition of coffee’s invigorating qualities dates to at least 1500, when Sufi Yemenis started drinking coffee to stay awake during prayers.

Will Moka Be America's Next Coffee Tradition?

Will Moka Be America's Next Coffee Tradition? | Addicted To Caffeine and Smoke While Online | Scoop.it

Great article about coffee and many different ways of preparing this amazing drink throughout the world.

 

Personally, Moka is the second best way to prepare your coffee after espresso.

It is easy and simple to make it in your home and a taste is fantastic.

 

Espresso and drip coffee have flooded the U.S., but the Moka pot is worth a look—if you learn the method from an expert...

 

Find a subject people are passionate about, and you'll find great debates.

 

In my first column, I reported that coffee is the second-most popular drink worldwide after water.

 

That got some tea fans all steamed up, staking their beloved beverage's claim to the number-two spot. Turns out, the tea people have a valid case ... and so do I.

 

When it comes to number of servings, tea indeed stacks up second to water.

 

But when you talk commodity production volume, coffee's nearly 7.7 million tons in 2009 is more than double tea's 3.8 million tons.

 

As logic suggests, it takes more ground coffee than leaf tea to yield equivalent volumes of quality beverage....

“A fine cigar is like a fine woman.

They come in all shapes and sizes.

Treat them tenderly and lovingly.

Caress their skin, admire their beauty, fondle them with reverence.

Bring them slowly to your lips, enjoy their flavor, their aroma.

Contemplate their essence, their dependability,

and forgive them their weaknesses–if there be any.

Revel in their rituals, their simplicity and their enduring meanings.

Do these things, my son, and the blessings of life shall always be upon you.”

~Prince Sined Yar Maharg
