Are you a coffee drinker? You can not do without your morning coffee? You drink it very black and tight? You sometimes have small tremors, cold sweats or headaches? You know your morning coffee is in question?
If so, you are not alone. A large number of adults in the world always prefer coffee, making it the favorite morning drink in many countries.
Even in Japan, one of the flagship countries for green tea , a large number of people consume coffee. This is not only caused by the implantation of the diabolical couple StarBEURK Café and MacGROnald , even if the American imperialism that reigned there since the Second World War brought its share of “traditions” consumerist, sometimes diametrically opposite to the Japanese culture original.
Every day in Japan, when I take the train, the subway, I see the majority of salarymen ( サラリーマン, Sarariman , office employees) doping with coffee. Since there are many beverage vending machines in Japan, it is very easy to find several kinds of coffees (cold or hot) from ¥ 150 (€ 1.10).
These coffees are purely infectious drinks, but loaded with caffeine. The effect of caffeine from coffee is immediate and salarymen seek this energy boost effect to successfully hold their (long) day’s work.
Today, Japan is the 4th largest importer of coffee in the world, with a consumption of 449.908 tons in 2014. A Japanese consumer consumes an average of 3.5 kg of coffee per year.
However, so many people experience tremors, headaches and an energy crash at the end of the day. With all these negative side effects brought about by over-consumption of coffee, some have become followers of a mysterious green powder that contains a natural dose of caffeine but that acts in healthier ways on your health.
I do not demonize coffee. Coffee has many proven virtuesfor health, its perfume and its flavor are inimitable. I love the coffee and I consume very regularly (even daily according to the periods). But the consumption of coffee (of bad coffee and sweetened in addition) acts in a harmful way on the well-being. Especially because coffee caffeine works much faster than green tea.
