Keys To Making Healthier, Tastier Coffee

A cup of fresh coffee in the morning may be just what you need to get you going. But , there are ways to elevate your morning coffee for better taste and increased health benefits.

Store your coffee beans away from oxygen, moisture and light so that they stay fresh longer. Grind your beans fresh before you brew a pot for better taste.

Dark-roasted beans are better at supporting brain health, with lower levels of acrylamide, a chemical that can “inhibit neurotransmission, destroy dopamine neurons, and increase oxidative stress.” Cold brewed coffee is better for your health, with less acidity, but you can always heat it up if you prefer your coffee hot.

Regulating your intake can help keep you from jitters and late afternoon crashing.
