Possible Health Benefits of Decaf Coffee

Possible Health Benefits of Decaf Coffee
Are you experiencing negative side effects when drinking regular coffee? If you’re sensitive to caffeine, it may be time to make the switch to decaf. We’ve talked about the supposed benefits of caffeinated coffee, but what about decaffeinated – are there benefits to drinking decaf coffee, as well?

Do You Believe These Decaf Coffee Health Benefits?

Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes: Studies published in 2006 by The American Medical Association show those who regularly drink decaf coffee have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes than those who do not regularly drink decaf coffee. The study found that the decreased risk was due to antioxidants and chlorogenic acid found in coffee. Chlorogenic acid seems to help keep glucose levels under control and may even aid in weight loss!

Reduce Incidence of Cancer: Because of the antioxidants found in coffee, a report by MSNBC in 2007 explained that drinking decaf coffee may help prevent cancer, specifically colon cancer, by aiding in digestion. Another form of cancer decaf coffee may help prevent is breast cancer. The study mentioned there was also a decreased risk of breast cancer in women who drank decaf coffee on a regular basis.

Decrease Fatalities from Heart Disease: Though studies are controversial, there has been a link made between drinking decaf coffee and a decreased chance of death from heart disease. Science Daily reported in 2008 on a study of middle-aged women decaf coffee drinkers which showed a 25% decrease in risk as a result.

The conclusion: Decaf coffee, when consumed in moderation, may also provide health benefits similar to regular caffeinated coffee.

Tassimo’s King of Joe Dark Roast contains 16 T-Discs per box. Each T-Disc brews a single 8-ounce cup for your Tassimo coffee maker.

The Test:

Your sense of smell will be the first to experience this King of Joe! Once brewed, the aroma reveals a slight smokiness and hint of charred wood that mingles with a very mild, syrup-like bouquet and blends with a delicate scent of walnuts and toast. Overall, the aroma is inviting and will leave you looking forward to your first sip.

Tassimo King of Joe Dark Roast Coffee ReviewWith your sense of sight, hold your freshly brewed cup of King of Joe Dark Roast coffee up to the window and allow the morning sunlight to shine through! Dark amber and brown tones will further entice you to taste this dark roast coffee.

Finally taking that first sip, you’ll notice the coffee has a medium to medium-thin mouth feel. This means that it isn’t thick and creamy like some coffees but isn’t too thin or watery, either. In a word, well-balanced describes this T-Disc to a tee.

These dark roast T-Discs are slightly sweet with light acidity and saltiness that finishes with a very mild charred flavor.

The Result:

On a scale of 1 to 5, we rate this coffee a 4. It’s not as robust and dark as the Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend or the Tassimo Gevalia Dark Italian Roast, but it is a good daily morning wake-me-up. This package also provides twice as many T-Disc’s as the Gevalia Dark House Blend or the Gevalia Dark Italian Roast.
