So, it’s morning. So, you must drink your coffee. But what a kind of coffee? A few decades ago an average coffee drinker would have answer only through weak or strong. Today the choice is huge, and you may wait answers like Robusta or Arabica; beans or roasted; or even Brazil, Colombia, Kenya, Ethiopia etc. The coffee drinkers refined their taste in an unbelievable manner, as this one is one of the most spread and acceptable addiction. Fact is, that drinking coffee helps to improve brain activity and memory. But only if you stop to 1 or 2 cups daily. If you drink more it can even worse your memory, showing also other side effects.
