Coffee! Why it’s ok to love it…
At FaithJuice our mantra is balance in all things… and that includes balancing our daily juice intake with a hot cup of The Best Coffee in Cape Town roasted right across the path from us at The Village Roast. Guy and his team are the best antidote to a bad mood that I know – from the friendly greeting of ‘Hello Sausage!’ and a bear hug from the man himself, to his smiley, beautiful team behind the counter, and of course he plays all the old school classics at full volume – every day feels like a Friday at The Roast.
Needless to say the coffee is aah-mazing. But did you know…
Coffee (good coffee, in moderation) is seriously good for you! It can help prevent liver disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimers and Parkinson’s, helps lower the metabolism, and enhances brain function. Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink, which actually contains a decent amount of vitamins and minerals.
A cup of coffee contains a massive amount of antioxidants as well as
- 6% of the RDA for vitamin B5
- 11% of the RDA for vitamin B2
- 2% of the RDA for vitamins B3) and B1.
- 3% of the RDA for Potassium and Manganese.
Drink a few cups of coffee per day and this quickly adds up!
So, see ya’ll at The Village Roast!
