Berikut pernyataan beliau:
Kopi instan yang dikemas dan mengandung krimer bisa menimbulkan efek negative dalam tubuh.
Kandungan krimer nabati jika dikonsumsi berlebihan dalam jangka panjang berpotensi menimbulkan Hipertensi dan penyumbatan pembuluh darah.
Karena Krimer nabati tidak dapat dicerna sempurna oleh tubuh.

Peragaan percobaan kecil dengan tiga buah lilin menyala, yg ditaburi krimer nabati di atasnya nyalanya semakin membesar, bukannya mati.
Ini karena krimer nabati bersifat eksplosif, mudah meledak atau eksplosif tinggi.
Jadi banyak mengonsumsi  kopi krimer, sama halnya dengan memasukkan kolesterol kering dalam tubuh, karena susah dicerna oleh tubuh.
*Boleh mengkonsumsi kopi instan, namun jangan banyak-banyak*
Lalu bagaimana dengan white coffee?

White coffee, sebenarnya “bukan jenis kopi putih, warna putih” itu didapatkan dari estrak gula atau minyak nabati yang diekstraksi.
Proses ekstraksi bahan tersebut menggunakan *bahan kimia.*

Proses pembuatannya juga tidak memenuhi standar kesehatan, kopi disangrai dengan suhu kecil, sehingga kandungan kafein dan asam tidak turun.
Hal itu dilakukan, agar warna bubuk yang dihasilkan tidak terlalu hitam, hal ini tidak bagus untuk kesehatan, karena bisa menyebabkan kanker.
*MINUM KOPI YG TEPAT*
Mengkonsumsi kopi hendaknya secukupnya saja dan tidak berlebihan.
Disarankan dikonsumsi *tanpa gula dua kali sehari,* secangkir di pagi hari setelah sarapan dan secangkir sore hari setelah makan.

Kopi hitam tanpa gula memberikan manfaat bagi tubuh, terutama penderita diabetes, karena kopi hitam mengandung ;

10 Ways Coffee Can Be Good For Your Health By Phil Mutz

10 Ways Coffee Can Be Good For Your Health By Phil Mutz

 

What could be better than kicking off the day with a delicious, fresh-brewed cup of joe?

According to Gallup’s polling, “Sixty-four percent of U.S. adults report drinking at least one cup of coffee on an average day.” Even more than that? “A quarter say they’re addicted.”

This high number of coffee drinkers may not come as a surprise. But it might be surprising to hear that drinking coffee can actually be beneficial to your health!

As with anything, moderation is key, and there is definitely such a thing as drinking too much coffee. However, those who enjoy coffee in healthy quantities can rest assured that they are actually doing something good for their bodies.

Some of these health benefits truly shocked me — who knew that coffee could be helpful in fighting type 2 diabetes or even certain types of cancer?

Scroll through this exclusive list below to see five ways you can use coffee to fight off some truly serious health conditions and five ways you can use it to benefit your day-to-day health.

Are you a coffee drinker? Does this affect the way you think about coffee? Let us know in the comments!
5 Health Conditions Coffee Keeps At Bay
Condition #1: Liver Cirrhosis

While coffee is not meant as a cure for liver cirrhosis or a way to counteract the overconsumption of alcohol, it can have positive effects on the liver and keep this terrible condition at bay.

According to CNN, “Drinking just two more cups of coffee every day may lower the risk of developing the liver condition by 44 percent.”

So for those worried about their livers, a cup of coffee instead of a drink of alcohol may be just what the doctor ordered!

Condition #2: Type 2 Diabetes

Maya Borenstein for LittleThings
Diabetes is a serious condition that should always be addressed with the help of medical professionals. However, coffee may be one small way of preventing type 2 diabetes.

In fact, WebMD writes, “Several studies have found that coffee drinkers — especially those who drink a lot of coffee — have a lower risk of diabetes than do other people.”

And while some have said that caffeine is the key ingredient in battling diabetes, studies have shown that it is not caffeine, but coffee specifically that creates the positive effect.

Condition #3: Heart Disease

While the effects of caffeine on the heart are still being studied, and while you should always listen to your doctor when it comes to heart health, coffee may actually be helpful in staving off deadly heart disease.

In a Tech Times article entitled “Drinking Coffee Everyday Linked To Reduced Death Risk From Heart Disease,” they discuss a study in which researchers wrote, “Regular consumption of coffee was inversely associated with risk of… mortality due to CVD [cardiovascular disease].”

So those concerned about heart health just might want to turn to that extra cup of coffee.
Condition #4: Cancer

While studies are still ongoing, many have shown that coffee contains plenty of antioxidants that can be helpful in the fight against cancer.

In fact, the American Institute for Cancer Research writes, “Research has shown that certain foods — like coffee — can help fight cancer.”

Obviously, coffee should never be used as any kind of “cure.” However, those who drink coffee regularly may gain the added side effect of keeping certain types of cancer away.

Condition #5: Parkinson’s And Alzheimer’s

In addition to boosting normal brain power, coffee is said to also be helpful in potentially preventing Alzheimer’s disease and fighting symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

According to CBS News, “New research shows drinking about three cups of coffee each day might stave off Alzheimer’s for older adults experiencing memory declines.”

They also report, “New research finds a daily caffeine boost may ease symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in sufferers.”

These studies may be very good news for those at risk of either disease!

5 Health Benefits Of Coffee
Benefit #1: Eliminates Fat

The caffeine in coffee can actually be beneficial when it comes to weight loss, as it can increase metabolism, help with workouts, and suppress your appetite for unhealthy foods.

Dietitian Kathy Taylor tells fitness expert Jillian Michaels, “Some studies have shown that drinking coffee with caffeine may slightly increase weight loss or in actually prevent weight gain.”

However, one important thing to remember is that milk and sugar can actually create fat, so coffee needs to be served black in order to reap this benefit.
Benefit #2: Improves Brain Power

Recent studies have shown that coffee may actually help improve your critical thinking skills and your memory.

Harvard Medical School writes, “The caffeine in coffee might offer not just a momentary mental boost, but also longer-term effects on thinking skills.”

However, they also write that similarly to burning fat, “adding lots of sugar or cream, or getting caffeine via sugar-sweetened soda, may counter any benefits.”

Benefit #3: Lowers Pain Levels

For those suffering from chronic pain, coffee might be able to have a positive overall effect.

According to Reader’s Digest, coffee is an anti-inflammatory food that can help provide pain relief throughout the body.

They write, “One cup of black coffee can provide relief from headaches and provide more antioxidants than a serving of berries.”

Benefit #4: Boosts Adrenaline

Maya Borenstein for LittleThings
The caffeine in coffee may actually be having a positive effect on your adrenal system, which helps in staying active and physically fit.

Nutrition researcher Kris Gunnars writes, “Caffeine can increase adrenaline levels… It also leads to significant improvements in physical performance.”

Benefit #5: Aids Digestion

Maya Borenstein for LittleThings
Most coffee drinkers know that a cup or two a day can help them to stay “regular.”

And while drinking too much coffee can lead to heartburn or possible dehydration, consuming coffee in moderation can have a healthy impact on your digestive system.

According to Livestrong, “Coffee can be beneficial for digestion, as it relieves constipation and minimizes sugar absorption.”
Being aware of what you put in your body is extremely important to maintaining your overall health. And with so many potential health benefits coming from coffee, it may be time to start including a cup or two in your diet!

As with everything, make sure to check with your doctor to see if coffee might be able to have a positive effect on your health.

Are you a coffee drinker? Have you experienced any of these positive effects before? Let us know in the comments.

Roasted coffee should be treated as living food

95% of roasted coffee in the world is old, still and death, roasted coffee should be treated as fresh living food and
looses the vitality and dies by a week.

After several trips to Bali, Asher Yaron finally decided to move there and follow his desire to create a local, organic,

sustainable business.

With Balinese coffee farmer friend I Nyoman Wirata, Asher created F.R.E.A.K., that is, “Fresh Roasted Enak (delicious in
Indonesian) Arabica from Kintamani,” which is involved in all aspects of the coffee business “from the cherry to the cup.”
Asher also has plans to use pure spring water from Kintamani to further improve the flavor of their coffee and return a
percentage of the profits to community projects in the Kintamani region. Asher’s upcoming venture: Coffee University.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to
share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and
connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED
event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

KOPI

Kopi adalah sejenis minuman yang berasal dari proses pengolahan dan ekstraksi biji tanaman kopi.

Buah Kopi

Kata kopi sendiri berasal dari bahasa Arab qahwah yang berarti kekuatan, karena pada awalnya kopi digunakan sebagai makanan berenergi tinggi. Kata qahwah kembali mengalami perubahan menjadi kahveh yang berasal dari bahasa Turki dan kemudian berubah lagi menjadi koffie dalam bahasa Belanda.Penggunaan kata koffie segera diserap ke dalam bahasa Indonesia menjadi kata kopi yang dikenal saat ini.
Secara umum, terdapat dua jenis biji kopi, yaitu arabika (kualitas terbaik) dan robusta.

Sejarah mencatat bahwa penemuan kopi sebagai minuman berkhasiat dan berenergi pertama kali ditemukan oleh Bangsa Etiopia di benua Afrika sekitar 3000 tahun (1000 SM) yang lalu. Kopi kemudian terus berkembang hingga saat ini menjadi salah satu minuman paling populer di dunia yang dikonsumsi oleh berbagai kalangan masyarakat Indonesia sendiri telah mampu memproduksi lebih dari 400 ribu ton kopi per tahunnya. Di samping rasa dan aromanya yang menarik, kopi juga dapat menurunkan risiko terkena penyakit kanker, diabetes, batu empedu, dan berbagai penyakit jantung (kardiovaskuler).

 

Arabica vs Robusta

Sumber/Source : http://www.clever-storage.com/eating-living/gourmet-pleasures/coffee-any-time-is-coffee-time/arabica-and-robusta.html

Coffee beans are obtained from the drupes of various species of plant belonging to the Rubiaceae family. The two best known kinds of coffee plant are arabica (Coffea arabica), of which there are around 10 billion plants, and robusta (Coffea canephora), with around four billion plants (as of 2005). Together, these two types provide around 98% of the green coffee grown around the world.
Robusta coffee is mostly cultivated in West Africa, Uganda, Indonesia and Vietnam, but also in Brazil and India. Arabica coffee, on the other hand, primarily comes from Latin America, East Africa, India and Papua New Guinea.
Differences between arabica and robusta

Arabica
  • Predominant growing altitude 600 – 1500 m (high-altitude coffee)
  • More sensitive, lower yields
  • Distinctive aroma
  • Caffeine content 0.6 – 1.5%
  • Popular in Central and Northern Europe
Robusta
  • Predominant growing altitude 300 – 800 m (low-altitude coffee)
  • High yields, resistant to pests
  • Stronger, more bitter taste
  • Caffeine content 2 – 3%
  • Preferred in America and the Mediterranean

Ironi seputar kopi

Kopi yang berasal dari Indonesia mulai naik daun di dunia, apalagi sejak Oprah Winfrey mempromosikan Kopi Luwak (Civet Coffee) yang hanya ada di Indonesia (http://travelinginparadise.blogspot.com/2011/06/civet-coffee-even-oprah-winfrey-had-to.html) atau googling saja dengan “civet coffee oprah winfrey”

Mocari coffee pernah dikunjungi seorang penggemar kopi sejati, Pak Y., kebetulan Pak Y. ini punya perusahaan sendiri dan punya jaringan pertemanan internasional, sehingga beliau sering keluar negeri seperti Singapore, Hongkong dll.

Suatu hari Pak Y. yang diajak temannya itu mencoba Black Coffee ala Mocari, mau tahu komentarnya (waktu temannya bertanya gimana Black Coffenya) … dia menjawab “Kopi KW2”.

Beliau kemudian bercerita bahwa beliau adalah penggemar kopi, sejak kecil, dan sudah mencoba hampir single origin dari setiap daerah di Indonesia, beliau pernah dijamu di Singapore, dicobalah Black Coffee, sangking bagusnya tuh aroma dan rasa kopi, komentar beliau “Tuh kopi disajikan di lantai 2 tetapi aromanya masih tercium di lantai 4” itulah kopi Indonesia di luar negeri dan beliau sangat menyayangkan bahwa kopi bagus jarang bisa ditemukan di negerinya sendiri alih-alih para pemain besar dalam industri kopi juga latah, lebih ke profit oriented, semua kopi dengan kualitas nomor 1 hanya diexport, tidak ada yang dijual di dalam negeri

Terima kasih Pak Y. atas kedatanganya ke Mocari Coffee, dilema atau ironi ini menjadi salah satu misi dari Mocari Coffee bahwa “the country deserved for a good coffee too …”
