    Six or More Cups of Coffee Per Day Increases Dementia Risk, Research FindsDaily Coffee News by Roast Magazine

    New research has found that people who drank more than six cups of coffee per day were more than twice as likely to develop dementia than people who drank coffee in moderation. The results gathered data from 17,702 participants in the UK Biobank between the ages of 37 and 73 who had available MRI information. It found a non-linear association between coffee consumption by volume and the risk of developing dementia or stroke.

    Why I Dislike the Word ‘Origin’ in CoffeeDaily Coffee News by Roast Magazine

    Like “origin stories,” photos “of origin” shown in traditional consumer markets tend to romanticize coffee farming and production, rather than recognizing it as real work undertaken by real people. There are plenty of words in specialty coffee that are so overused, or used so variably, that they ultimately seem to signify very little. The word “specialty” itself comes to mind; “quality” is arguably still subjective; and then there’s “sustainability,” which can mean entirely different things to different people or organizations. Even the word “fresh” is contestable. While there may still be some redeemable virtues for these cornerstone descriptors, I’d like
