Dark is BREWtiful

Dark is BREWtiful

By: Daryl Jedreann V. Dauden

They say that coffee that goes beyond your throat and reaches deep within is a good kind of coffee. Now that it’s beginning to feel a lot colder and in some places, the snow has started to take a toll of them, expect that people will drink a lot more coffee than they do for the rest of the year. Too often, sugary coffee lovers flock famous coffee shops around town but missing out on the essence of authentic black coffee. You may or may not be one of them, but this cuddle season, we will give our best to make you a convert and/or a mainstay of loving pure black coffee. Plus, we’ll give you some do-it-yourself ways of making one that is just right for your taste buds.

So going back, why black when it can be soppy brown, white, gushy, hot or cold? Here’s why:

Black coffee is known to have fewer calories than the sugary one. In order for you to be able to shift to drinking black, try adjusting your daily intakes of brown and white coffee. Consider this procedure of Solo Espresso:

 - Use ½ teaspoon less sugar and take half the milk you usually use.
- Drink your coffee this way for a week.
- Once again, use ½ teaspoon less sugar and only use ¼ of the original amount of milk.

I cannot agree enough- sugar is irresistible! Even the Greatest Loser champion can profess how hard it is to get rid of this sweet additive in his daily consumption. But if you can’t kiss sugar goodbye in your black coffee, we will suggest healthy alternatives that can be eliminated or cut down eventually like that of sugar in your aromatic, pure dark coffee. We believe that these healthy options will surely compliment the coffee you have been craving while considering its benefits. Alternatively, you can indefinitely use the following according to your preference:

-Pints of ground cinnamon that helps to fight the risk of heart disease and blood-related diseases.
-A teaspoon of vanilla extract that treats intestinal gas and fever.
-Cocoa powder that reduces high blood pressure and helps improve the blood flow in the body

Black coffee is not hard to prepare. There are coffee blends of roasted Arabica and Robusta that are available in the grocery. Just boil a decent amount of water in a kettle and then take your favorite cup of coffee and pour the water you just boiled into it. Get your coffee blend and take ½ to a teaspoon of coffee according to your liking. In the same way, we understand that you have been rejecting black coffee up to date because of its overbearing bitterness. But don’t you know that you can counter it with salt? Try brewing your ground coffee in a coffee maker and add a dash of salt at a time until you find the level of bitterness your palate can bear.

Here are some coffee makers we suggest for you:
