Which coffee is healthy?

  1. The better the coffee is filtered, the less cafestol and the healthier it is. Coffee can be made in different ways. Most coffee is in the Wheel of Five. Some varieties contain more of the substance cafestol than others. Cafestol increases LDL cholesterol. Too much LDL cholesterol in your blood sticks to the lining of your arteries. This increases the risk of, for example, a heart attack or stroke. The least cafestol is in coffee made with a paper filter, coffee from coffee pods, coffee made with a percolator and in instant coffee. Coffee made with cups, espresso and coffee made with a mocha pot (also called moka or Italian coffee pot) contains more cafestol. Coffee from a cafetière (also called blending coffee or French press) and certainly cooking coffee (also called Turkish or Greek coffee) contains the highest amount of cafestol. Coffee from a cafetière and cooking coffee are therefore not in the Wheel of Five.
