Natural Oils In Coffee, Good Or Bad?
Been reading some highly conflicting data. Some suggesting that the oils are what carry the actual health benefits of coffee, including the chlorogenic acid and is what makes it a healthy beverage if brewed fresh and from quality beans.
Others are suggesting that these oils are actually BAD for you, and to always use a paper filter method of brewing as these oils carry the terpenes which are bad for you, and terrible for your gut flora and also your choloesterol.
Anyone want to save me some digging deep in to more research on this??
I have always been using a french press as I have previously WANTED the oils. In addition to this i prefer a dirty cup (love the oils and sediment and rinds) vs a clean cup and hate paper filters due to taste. But if the oils are doing more harm than good, would be inclined to switch over. Gotta love the internet and conflicting data... If anyone knows would be interested to hear.
