How to Brew the Healthiest Cup of Coffee

5 min read

Coffee doesn’t just feel like a magic elixir that reinvigorates your body, mind, and soul — there are reams of research showing that it does have incredible benefits for all of the above. But you have to brew it right, which has nothing to do with half-caf, double-hot, no-foam, or any other of the hyphenated adjectives baristas yell out.

Maxing out the potential of this morning miracle worker involves choosing the right roast, grinding properly, brewing style, water temp, and more things you’re probably not doing, or not doing correctly. Not to worry; we consulted experts on how to brew the single healthiest cup, and they were willing to spill the beans.

The Healthiest Coffee Bean

According to science, there’s practically nothing coffee can’t do. Drinking it has been associated with reduced the risk of liver cancer, per a review published in May 2017 in BMJ Open; reduced risk of colon cancer in women, according to an analysis published in July 2018 in International Journal of Cancer; as well as reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and even strokes in women (both older), per past research. A meta-analysis published in June 2019 in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, which examined 21 previous coffee studies totaling more than 10 million participants, found that drinking one cup of regular or decaf coffee daily will reduce your risk of death by 3 percent, while drinking three cups a day decreases that same risk by 13 percent.

The majority of these health benefits are thanks to polyphenols, plant-based compounds found in coffee beans. Polyphenols have been shown to support brain and digestive health, and help protect against heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers.
