Myths about coffee
Myth 1: It’ll keep you awake
Caffeine is a well-known stimulant, but your liver will process what is in your coffee quite quickly. In fact, up to 75 percent will have passed through your system within seven hours, so don’t worry about your insomnia too much.
Myth 2: Drinking coffee will dehydrate you
The one thing you’ll probably notice more than anything else about your coffee is that it is a liquid, made up mostly of water. This water more than makes up for any dehydrating effects the coffee itself might have on your body.
Myth 3: Coffee will cure your night on the town
Coffee may make you feel less groggy and more alert, but curing the excess of alcohol in your body, sorry, not a chance.
Myth 4: You need to use boiling water
No. Simply no. Any hot water above 200 degrees F will begin the process of extracting the bitter oils from the grounds and even scorch them releasing a bitter burnt taste when boiling water is used directly on grounds.
