13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Coffee

Each and every one of us has our own excuse for drinking coffee. Some do it for social purposes, for an extra dose of energy, or because they simply like the taste. However, there are very few people who admit that they need the coffee, not just want it. Or more precisely, it’s your brain that needs it.

In these cases, our brain knows better than us. It knows what it needs to clear that annoying fog resting around it at the same time every day. And here are a few quick reasons why you should give in to that urge, according to Dripped Coffee’s infographic:

  • It gives you an energy boost
  • It reduces the risk of depression
  • It reduces cravings and helps you burn calories
  • It strengthens your DNA
  • It improves your focus and stimulates your central nervous system
  • It improves your short term memory
  • It protects against diseases such as Alzheimer’s, gout or type 2 diabetes.

Your brain sees coffee as humans see a hug: it’s soothing, it’s helpful, and it’s one of the best addictions to have. We know we are coffee addicts; we just don’t care. And if we are to be completely honest, neither does our brain.

    If you are still not drinking coffee after learning about these benefits, you have a problem! From first sip to the last drop, it can be beneficial to your health in more ways than one.

    Agreed Miguel. And with so many different roasts. Question… A local coffee shop that roasts it’s own coffee beans have started serving ‘White COFFEE’. Wondering if Camano Island is planning on offering this roast ? 3 times as much Caffeine as Espresso.

      Chuck, great question. We currently have no plans to bring in “white coffee”. The main reasons are demand, and internal capacity. White coffee is such a niche product that we do not see it fitting in with our already large catalog of coffees.

      We hope you will give our light roast coffees a try as an alternative. Thanks for the comment.

    You didn’t mention coffee’s protective effect for the liver. worth going back to pub/med to look into this.

    It would be great to see an infographic that highlights what happens to the body when it withdraws from coffee!
