Home Coffee Machines come with many advantages for coffee lovers in the world. Coffee lovers have understood this fact, and that is why the demand for Home Coffee Machines is increasing throughout the past few years. Well, nothing in the world comes only with advantages. A negative side also there to consider. In this article, let’s talk about all these concerns. As a coffee lover, coffee is my driving fuel. My coffee drinking habit has made me a better person in many ways.
OK, before we talk about Home Coffee Machines, let’s go through the history of coffee. When people discovered coffee in the 16th century, they didn’t know much about caffeine and various coffee styles we have today. Of course, they must have felt the mental stimulating effect of coffee in the 16th century as well. We, humans; didn’t know much about caffeine until Friedlieb Runge discovered it in 1819 (a long time back.)
Why people drink coffee?
Billions of coffee lovers in the world drink it because of two factors. The first factor is the unique taste of the beverage. The second is the energizing effect it can bring to us. Billions of coffee lovers in the world buy Home Coffee Machines either because they are addicted to the unique taste of coffee. Or, they are addicted to the energizing effect it brings to us. No matter the reason, you should consume coffee in moderate amounts. If not, you will come across many health and lifestyle issues that we will discuss later in this article.
Our home used to have many Home Coffee Machines for over a decade. Well, we have a coffee machine today as well. I drink coffee because of its unique taste. My wife drinks it for the energizing effect. My daughter drinks it for the taste. But my son gave me second thoughts about having Home Coffee Machines. I mean, he got addicted to that energizing effect of coffee to a point where he couldn’t live without it. Experts have set the daily safe coffee consumption limit as 4-5 cups a day (maximum.) We didn’t know what our son was doing for many months until we took him to a doctor for a health checkup. He used to suffer from headaches, weight loss, insomnia, irritability, and nervousness for many months. The doctor questioned him about his daily lifestyle. There he revealed his addiction to coffee, and we were surprised to hear his over consumption of coffee, which had caused all health effects he was suffering. He had consumed over 10 coffee cups a day.
My story reveals a top disadvantage of Home Coffee Machines. I mean, my son said the doctor that the coffee machine we have in our home was the reason behind his bad habit. Well, we can’t blame Home Coffee Machines here. Anyway, if you plan to buy a coffee machine for your home; make sure you know the safe limits. Like what happened to my son, you can get addicted to coffee, which can cause a number of negative health effects.
Well, many advantages are there to discuss here in detail. Home Coffee Machines save your time and money in the long run. OK, let’s get to know all the advantages in detail now:
* You can start your day with your favorite energizing beverage. Many coffee lovers including me, start the day with a refreshing coffee cup. Anyway, do you have time to hit the nearest coffee shop every morning? Well, we are too busy to do that in this fast-moving world. Modern Home Coffee Machines come with extra features such as automatic brewing and freshness calculator. I set the automatic brewing time to 5.30 in the morning, which is the time wake up every day. Going to the kitchen for that prepared morning fuel is the first thing I do every morning. Thanks to the taste and the energizing effect of coffee, I can start the day with more energy. So, I am more efficient now. So, if you are a person who suffers from lethargy after waking up; Home Coffee Machines can bring you the required energy to overcome it. Anyway, don’t forget the negative effect I have explained in this article before. Keep the daily intake limit to 4-5 cup a day (maximum.)
* Home Coffee Machines let you explore the coffee world (you should buy a manual coffee machine.) So, you can explore your hidden coffee talents with it. Saturday morning is our coffee party day. We spend about an hour on every Saturday morning for this family get-together. It brings everyone in the family closer. Yes, you can do it up to some extent with automatic Home Coffee Machines as well. Try adding new flavors or decorate the coffee for fun.
OK, I would like to talk a bit about controlling coffee intake. I am a big fan of coffee, but I never exceed the 3-4 cups-a-day limit. In between my coffee cups; I drink warm water. How much water do you drink per day? Did you know that many of us don’t drink enough water, which can lead to serious side effects such as dehydration and fainting? I know — warm water is not tasty as a refreshing coffee cup, but it gives you some sort of energizing feeling when you feel weak. Warm water doesn’t cause any side effects.
Adding semi-skimmed milk is another way to lower your caffeine intake. Fill half of your cup with coffee and add milk to it. Also, you can lower the coffee concentration by adding more water (the taste is there yet.)
Some final words
Understanding the safe coffee consumption limit is a thing to consider before focusing on Home Coffee Machines. Don’t get addicted to coffee. You can find hundreds of articles on side effects of coffee overconsumption on the Internet. In this article, we didn’t talk about Home Coffee Machines types. Our blog has many articles on various topics on Home Coffee Machines.
If you have teenage children, make sure they don’t exceed the safe limits. We live in a time where more and more teenagers get addicted to caffeine and its energizing effects. A quick tip: having a coffee cup before hitting the gym gives you an extra punch for your workout. It is safer than dangerous energy drinks and pre-workout supplements (also, cheaper.) Anyway, don’t add milk to your pre-workout coffee cup. Only then you can experience the real energizing effect of coffee for more intense workouts.
