Hi,

Does anyone know of studies on different types of effects of caffeine from different coffees?

I've noticed that different coffees give different type of "buzz". When I make myself an espresso from Tarraz˙ coffee from Costa Rica, it feels different than when I make myself some coffee from Ethiopia.

Does anyone have like a study of such types of caffeine? Do you know of anything like this?

Thanks,

-Gaston

They are all the same type of caffeine. It's a chemical, it's all the same. That being said, different beans and different roasts have a different amount of caffeine. And I have no clue if there is theobromine or theophylline in coffee like there is also in chocolate and tea.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

do you game?:

I understand that they are the same caffeine. Just as I understand that the chemicals in POT are the same. THC is THC.

Nonetheless, if you observe your body and your sensations, not all coffees are created equal.

All the focus is in the taste and aftertaste, etc.

Doesn't anyone feel the difference in coffee's effects?

I've certainly felt the difference.
