Interesting video (but long) which debunks our concern with cholesterol. It doesn't comment specifically on cafestol and it's effect on cholesterol (or type of cholesterol) for that matter but it does make me wonder why any effect on cholesterol would even matter.
That wasn't the point. The point was that coffee's effect on the body's cholesterol is overstated. That coffee does not have dietary cholesterol is indeed not the argument I was making. I was pointing out that dietary fat was a larger factor than dietary cholesterol.

To revive this thread: I am 53, male, fairly good health, active, run 6-8 miles/day on weekends, 3-4 twice during week, eat fish, use olive oil exclusively, etc. My LDL shot up to 179, my total cholesterol to 259. I had researched effects of unfiltered coffee for a while because I was borderline high on cholesterol, I pay attention mostly to peer-reviewed articles and I believe that drinking FP does cause LDL to go up. I will be buying an AP today, I will not change anything as far as food, nor take any medications, and drink filtered coffee exclusively for two months, I will then have another screening and I will post here the result as far as cholesterol. This will certainly be based on me only and will not produce irrefutable evidence one way or the other, but to me my results will be valid.
