Roasted Decaf Coffee Beans – why is decaf coffee important for many people

We at Vibe Coffee see all types of coffee tastes, likes and dislikes.  The one thing we see commonly is the sheer joy from customers who love our decaf coffee beans.  There is a clear passion and need for a high quality decaf coffee bean.

But why is that?  The Marketing/PR machine does a very good job of explaining the benefits of drinking coffee along with the benefits of caffeine.  But research has proven there are as many side effects and downsides as there are upsides to consumer Espresso with caffeine.

This article will explain why there are so many decaf coffee bean lovers out there.

But first a brief summary of caffeine.

What is Caffeine?

Caffeine is a bitter substance that occurs both naturally in plants and is also man-made.

Caffeine plays a key part to coffee beans, tea leaves etc…, but it’s also commonly found in medicines, foods and energy drinks.

The primary positive effect of caffeine consumption comes in how it stimulates the central nervous system making people feel more awake.  Many people also like the diuretic effects.

When does caffeine become harmful?

If people drink less than 400 mg of caffeine the harmful effects of caffeine is not normally felt.  But an 8-ounce cup of coffee can have as much as 200 mg of caffeine.  If you are a three-per day coffee drinker you could easily surpass the 400 mg level.

The Downside to Caffeine:

In the situation where people reach higher doses of caffeine, below is a list of the common downsides

  1. Increases the release of acid in your stomach which can lead to an upset stomach
  2. May interfere with the absorption of calcium in the body – this is bad for women how are more prone to Osteoporosis
  3. Increases blood pressure
  4. Restlessness, insomnia, shakiness, dizziness
  5. Dehydration leading to headaches
  6. Dependency – this results in people being hooked in the buzz and need to take more of it to get the same results

Decaf Coffee Beans are the answer:

With the above said, it’s no wonder decaf coffee and locally roasted decaf coffee beans are becoming more popular.  But not all decaf coffee beans are created equal.

People who want decaf coffee beans, do so because they still love the taste of coffee, but prefer not to expose themselves to the list of issues mentioned above.

This underlies the importance of having decaf coffee beans that are rich in flavour and poor in caffeine content.

This is why the Vibe Decaf Coffee Bean undergoes a patented eco-friendly Mountain Water Process to remove the caffeine and at the same time preserve the coffee bean flavour (click here to learn more).

The Final Word:

The popularity of locally roasted decaf coffee bean products has forced retailers to lift their caffeine-extraction-game.  People are now able to find high quality coffee beans rich in flavour and aroma and no longer need to ingest caffeine in order to enjoy the great coffee taste.  And in doing so, avoid the downsides to ingesting caffeine.
