Black coffee: invigorate body and mind

“Black coffee gives strength…” Mr. Štědrý once sang. And bean coffee lovers certainly agree with him even today. The dried and roasted seeds of the tropical coffee tree contain the alkaloid caffeine, which repels drowsiness, malaise and fatigue.

Roasting also gives coffee the aromatic oil kaffeol, which affects its distinctive taste and aroma. The popularity of the drink is also evidenced by the wide variety of ways to prepare it.

We have selected 3 of them for you for this article. Get inspired and see that you will fall in love with it.
