What Is Nitro Coffee?

What Is Nitro Coffee? By www.BuyOrganicCoffee.org Nitro coffee is ice cold coffee, slightly
bubbly, on tap. People have likened its appearance to a glass of Guinness on tap. The coffee
is treated with nitrogen, or carbon dioxide, under pressure and chilled in a keg. Those
who have tried it say that nitro coffee is sweeter and less acidic than other cold brewed
coffees. You will typically have your nitro coffee served to you in a pint glass, like
beer. Variations on the theme can include adding cream, vanilla, syrup and cinnamon.
Beware of chugging down this tasty concoction as you may suffer acute caffeine overload! What Is the Point of Nitro Coffee? Nitro coffee is different. If you are tired
of the usual coffee house coffees, nitro coffee may be a pleasant change of pace. But, if
you like the aroma and taste of freshly roasted, freshly ground Arabica coffee you may be disappointed.
The point of drinking freshly roasted, freshly ground and freshly brewed coffee is that it
is in fact fresher. Regular and organic coffee antioxidants provide much of the flavor as
well as the health benefits of drinking coffee. So You Want Coffee or Caffeinated Soda? Historically coffee drinkers with a sweet
tooth added a lot of sugar. Now there are a lot more variations on the theme. Coffee
house coffees include Americano, Breve, Latter, Cappuccino and Mocha to all of which you can
add sugar. Americano
Americano is a coffee house coffee made from espresso and diluted with water. This goes
back to the World War II era and after when GI’s who were used to Mom’s home perked
or boiled coffee asked the barista to add water to their espresso to make it less strong.
Think “weak espresso.” Breve and Latte
Both of these are made with espresso and foam. Latte is made with steamed milk and breve
is made with half and half. For latte think “coffee with milk” or café au lait and
for breve think “coffee with milk and cream.” Cappuccino
Cappuccino is made with espresso plus hot milk plus lots of steamed foam. Mocha
Mocha is for coffee and chocolate lovers. It is made with espresso plus chocolate syrup
plus milk. And now nitro coffee with the appearance of
beer provides a coffee flavored, bubbly caffeinated soda to which you can add cream, vanilla,
syrup, cinnamon and more. What Do You Gain or Lose? What you gain with nitro coffee is a cold
drink that you can store and serve on tap. What you lose are probably the antioxidants
that make coffee healthy. Antioxidants Scientifically an antioxidant is a molecule
that inhibits the cell damage and cell death in human cells caused by oxidative breakdown
of other molecules in the cell. Oxidation is a factor in sickness and aging. Antioxidants
help prevent the damage caused by excessive oxidation and to a degree inhibit the aging
process. When an oxidative reaction brought on by disease gets going it produces free
radicals that start chain reactions which in turn cause cell and tissue damage. The
human body has or uses antioxidants to control this situation. Natural means of controlling
oxidation include vitamins C and E as well as glutathione. It is low levels of antioxidants
that can lead to a condition referred to as oxidative stress and resultant damage to cells
in the body. Organic coffee antioxidants are in the same class of molecules that help reduce
oxidation. For more information about high quality and
