By:  Carl Esonhouse

Regardless of the quantity of flavors, throughout the influx of coffee shops that sell European blends, there has been a renaissance in black coffee. The traditional cup of Joe is among the most beloved beverages in the world. There are numerous varieties and an array of blends that have been introduced from countless locations across the world. This, while the coffee producers continue to go after their market share. Nonetheless, with the array of brands and flavors in the market the majority of customers still rely on black coffee enabling their caffeine fix.

The American Heart Association recently stated that coffee contained antioxidants which are the substances which inhibit the formation of free radicals. Free radicals in the body are natural compounds which are believed to the accelerate in the progress of chronic diseases such as cancer. It follows then that a little coffee is a good thing.

Black coffee is synergistic to many people's functionality the day after a night where there was a heavy consumption of alcohol. The power of black coffee, which is determined by the period that the hot water stays in the coffee grounds mixture, is a sense of personal taste. When attempting to wake up from the night before that was filled with little or restless sleep like coffee has always been synonymous as a remedy. Notwithstanding the evidence, people still believe that black coffee will keep people alert when they are tired, the caffeine in the drink isn't thinned down by the addition of other products. However the opinion that strong black coffee is a way to stay awake has long been debunked.

From the ancient days of pouring ground coffee straight into the hot rolling water to today's automatic coffee makers with their brew controls which watch the time and temperature, black coffee has been a mainstay of the longest lasting formulas that make up the food chain. In spite of all the efforts to brew the ideal cup of coffee, individual tastes may prevent that from happening on a massive scale. It still takes a coffee shop to satisfy some. On the other hand everyone still believes that they have the ideal recipe.

The real coffee lovers call flavored coffee, coffee-based soup. They call it flavored hot water masquerading as soup pushed through coffee grounds. They see it as an attempt to create a new food item. For genuine coffee lovers, the addition of milk, and sugar; let alone the addition of flavors, to their beloved black coffee is an abomination. In fact, numerous folk are convinced that caffeine's tart flavor is overpowered by adding flavorings and make it more palatable so that they can benefit from the stimulating affects of the drug.

The preponderance of black coffee lovers don't drink the coffee before it cools, but there is an increasing market for what is called iced coffee, which is regularly served without additional flavorings or sweeteners. However the debate will go on as it is a fact that coffee is one of the most beloved beverages in the world.
