The Best Morning Coffees: Our Top 5
The start of the new school year is already upon us, goodbye to the summer and the long sunny days. Are you looking for the morning coffee that will make you want to get up every day? Look no further! MaxiCoffee guides you to understand why coffee helps you wake up every morning and which coffee to choose to make you smile as soon as you wake up.
Whether you are working from home or at the office, ONE coffee will get you going throughout the day. So choose wisely! Do you need a strong, mild, organic coffee or even a specialty coffee? Let’s find out together ;)
Why Drink Coffee in the Morning?
If you enjoy your morning coffee, it’s because it helps you wake up your brains and your taste buds! The caffeine it contains gives you the boost you need to start the day.
The way your coffee is made, the variety you choose and how it is roasted, all play a part in the amount of caffeine contained in your morning coffee. For example, Robusta beans are richer in caffeine than Arabica coffee beans. But its more pronounced bitterness may not suit all palates, especially in the morning!
When consumed in moderation, caffeine improves the ability to concentrate and stimulates digestion. It also reduces the feeling of fatigue by increasing the level of cortisol in your blood. This is why for some people, consuming caffeine in the morning is an essential step to start the day.
Of course, everyone reacts differently to caffeine. You can easily build a tolerance. That’s why some people can drink an espresso and go to bed without any problem. Others, on the other hand, need several cups to wake up. It’s up to you to find the perfect and safe amount (according to the European Food Safety Agency) to get the full benefits.
Espresso, filter, or slow brew, which preparation method should you choose for your morning coffee?
Of course, it all depends on your tastes and the time you have available for breakfast. That said, you should know that a strong espresso, while it will awaken your taste buds, is less caffeinated than other brewing methods. A filter or slow-brew coffee will be richer in caffeine, as the water stays in contact with the coffee grounds for longer.
Filter machines are interesting if you have trouble getting out of bed: some are even programmable. You can prepare your ground coffee in the evening, wake up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee, and enjoy a cup almost immediately. A dream come true!
If you have the time and enjoy rituals, you can opt for a slow brew (also called slow coffee). Whether you use a cafetière, such as a Bodum French press, or a filter coffee method, such as a V60 pourover or a Chemex, these brewing methods make your morning coffee a meditative and timeless moment. You can watch the coffee grounds unfold as they come into contact with the water, and then the coffee slowly flows into the coffee maker. The result will be rich in aroma and caffeine, perfect for starting the day. Pro tip: you can chill any extra filter coffee and enjoy it as an ice coffee!
