I will try the espresso bean route for now because I have purchased dark roast coffee in the past, and it upset my stomach even worse than medium roast. I have never seen an Italian roast in the stores hmm.gif - would all Italian roasts be equivalent to espresso?

The French roast we make in the espresso machine isn't really an espresso, just dark roasted brewing coffee, but as espresso is ground much finer we find it clogging up our machine 13.gif

hmm.gif I wonder if the hot brewing is what elevates the acidity.

I drink my coffee so slowly, I always end up drinking it cold any way...this cold brewing method is supposely 70% less acidic.

I gulp my coffee down pretty quickly. Cold milk is to cool it down so I can drink it immediately chuckle.gif

I some times drink it black, actually it's quite a nice experience drinking it black...but I too put in lots of cold milk to make it less acidic...I still don't gulp it down...I like to savour it slowly.

Well well, I wasn't aware of this:

Quote:This study, published in the journal Food Research International, studied different sipping amounts and the impact they had on the smell of coffee.

It was found that different coffee brewing technique appeared to affect aroma release and that the bigger the sip taken, the more fragrance was released.

The researchers said the varying levels of aroma from different size sips or gulps could be explained by the amount of saliva in drinkers’ mouths.

They tested four different types of coffee brews - American, Neopolitan, moka and espresso.

Espresso coffee - the one type of coffee usually sipped - was identified as giving off the most aroma when bigger rather than smaller sips were taken.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

I live off the stuff, especially when fall and winter kick in. I can even have espresso late in the evening and still sleep like a baby.

Same here, and now that I've pretty much stopped drinking alcohol, not a personal mandate or anything, well coffee has taken an even bigger foothold in my daily routine.

Be careful is you smoke too though. There have been lots of studies about long term coffee drinkers and nicotine users that show a whole lot of inactivity in the brain.

When you study such a population though there is no noticeable IQ deficiency or behavior issue, but the brain scans will show it.

Using one or the other does not get those results, something specific about the two together. But no known observable differences. Is a mystery.

The two large black holes at the top of the brain are in the prefrontal cortex - just under the forehead - which is the brain’s boardroom. This is where you learn from your mistakes; damage here makes you vulnerable to depression. The distorted temporal lobes (the large gaps in the middle) are linked to poor memory. This patient, a company chief executive, had complained of lack of energy and trouble concentrating.

But as far as I know, that's mostly speculation, there is some mystery on what is precisely going on.

Ideally you'd take brain scans of younger college kids that drink coffee and smoke, then 20 years later do a comparison scan to test it more.
