Clear Lake Coffee Roasters: Explorer Series - Sumatra, the Island of Gold No Less- June 6th 2021
Referring to Sumadra as Sumatra was an error that has survived the ages. Calling a rhinoceros a unicorn was not. Given the disappointment Polo expressed at how ugly the unicorns were relative to his expectations, he would no doubt be pleased if he ever discovered the truth. When he died in 1324, coffee was likely still consumed mostly for medicinal purposes in Arabia and prepared using a variety of methods, which included roasting the whole cherry with the bean inside, crushing the results, mixing it with boiled water, and then drinking it all, including the grounds. Outside of the positive effects of caffeine and other attributes—and with apologies to the Medicinal Coffee Association of Arabia (MCAA)—he wasn’t missing anything.

If You Have a Sensitive Stomach
Make sure you use a filtered brewing method, and steer clear of the French Press or AeroPress. Coffee that’s made with these two brew methods yields a suspension of coffee particulate, and those particles will continue to extract caffeine in the stomach, an acid-forming process. Instead, use a brew method that uses a paper filter. Using filtered water can also help with pH balance.

Should Teens Drink Coffee?
Caffeine can interfere with calcium absorption, which could interfere with proper growth (although not necessarily stunting) and bone density in kids. "But they'd have to be drinking coffee or getting caffeine to excess and for a long time," says Ayoob. "Because of the stimulant effect, I recommend that kids wanting coffee get it in decaffeinated form." He says decaffeinated coffee drinks with added milk can be a good way for teens to get extra calcium, vitamin D, and potassium—three nutrients of real concern in teens (and adults).
