We know the healthiest way to make coffee!


Coffee is not only good for your health, mood and energy, it can also extend your life. We're talking about filter coffee. This fact was announced by a new long-term study published on April 22, 2020 in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

"Unfiltered coffee contains substances that raise cholesterol levels. Using a filter removes the substances and reduces the likelihood of heart attacks and premature death," said study author Dag Thelle, senior professor in the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. The study provides strong and convincing evidence of a link between different coffee brewing methods, heart attacks and longevity.

Now we have bad news for all those who love French press coffee, espresso-based coffee or classic Turkish coffee. These variants can actually increase your risk of heart disease.

All unfiltered coffees contain higher levels of cavestol and kahweol. Cavestol and kahwele are chemicals found in the oil droplets contained in coffee and its sediment. Studies have shown that these substances can raise triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels. If you have elevated levels of these blood fats, you are more susceptible to the risk ofcardiovascular disease, or heart and blood vessel disease.

So, itis better to drink filter coffee. The filter through which the coffee is filtered helps to trap these harmful chemicals.


A new study followed more than half a million healthy Norwegian men and women aged 20 to 79 over a 20-year period. The results showed that drinking unfiltered coffee increased the risk of death in men aged 60 and over, due to increased cardiovascular mortality.

However, thanks to the study, it was also found that drinking filtered coffee is healthier than drinking unfiltered coffee. Filtered coffee was associated with a 15% reduced risk of death from any cause, a 12% reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease in men, and a 20% reduced risk of death from heart disease in women compared to drinking unfiltered coffee.

The study found that those who drank one to four cups of filtered coffee per day had the lowest mortality rates.


Coffee reduces the risk of melanoma, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, prostate cancer and Alzheimer's disease. However, nothing is perfect. So there are a few reasons why you should cut back or avoid coffee.

1. Sleep

If you have trouble falling asleep or feel like you haven't slept all night in the morning, it's best to avoid coffee and all sources of caffeine in the evening and right before bed. Readour article on when it's best todrink coffee. You'll find out when you should last drink coffee before bed so it doesn't affect your sleep quality.

2. Frequent fractures

If you are prone to fractures and have something broken frequently, we may know where the dog is buried. High coffee consumption (more than four cups a day) has been linked to a higher risk of fractures in women. In men, this aspect has not been confirmed.

3. Pregnant women

Pregnant women should also be cautious when drinking coffee. Higher levels of coffee consumption have been found to increase the risk of premature births and stillbirths, as well as low birth weight infants. This is probably due to the fact that caffeine is doubled for a woman during pregnancy. Try a decaffeinated version of coffeeinstead .


Fortunately for most people, coffee is fine. For people who know they have high cholesterol, it is better to drink primarily filtered coffee.

To make drinking coffee even healthier, we have a tip for you. Try drinking coffee without sugar. Not only will you experience the true variety and taste of coffee, but your body will also thank you in terms of your health.
