How Much Decaffeinated Coffee Is Healthy?

  1. Last week I went to the Bijenkorf and (as many people know) stopped by the Nespresso department. I was offered a cup of coffee and I was allowed to choose between (perhaps) 30 different colored "cups".

  1. I chose the decaf coffee.

  1. It is common knowledge that if you drink more than 2 cups of coffee a day, this is not beneficial to your health. This is mainly due to the large amount of caffeine that your body has to process. Organic coffee is also not much "healthier" than regular coffee.

  1. Especially when you drink coffee with sugar and coffee creamer! Â

  1. Ok, now I have a question for you. Overuse of coffee can be perceived as bad due to the amount of caffeine. But what if we change regular coffee to decaffeinated coffee?

  1. Does this automatically mean that you can drink much more than normal coffee?

Decaffeinated coffee the solution?

  1. Even when we drink decaffeinated coffee, it still contains leftover caffeine. It is practically impossible to make coffee 100% decaffeinated. Rest assured, it is only a very small portion that will always be left behind (about 0.1%).

  1. How do you make decaffeinated coffee?

  1. There are several methods to process caffeine from the coffee beans. Most of the caffeine will be extracted in this process. Yet there will always be a small portion left.

Answer to the question?

  1. Drinking decaffeinated coffee is not necessarily healthier. Only when you drink more than 5-7 cups per day on average is it wise to replace normal coffee (or at least some) with decaffeinated coffee.

  1. If you only drink 2 to 3 cups a day, the difference is negligible.

  1. Even if you drink a lot of "decaf" in the long term, this can have a negative influence on blood pressure. Coffee is delicious, but in moderation.

  1. Personal preference

  1. I always drink 1 cup of coffee with caffeine and 1 cup of coffee without caffeine. Not because of the taste, but because I made a conscious choice not to have too many stimulants in my body. In addition, I don't want to drink coffee to get through the day. It's much better to take an extra break or go for a walk.
