The virtues of the coffee of your portable coffee maker

Coffeine effects on sportsmen and women

Caffeine produced by your portable coffee maker

Caffeine is found not only in tea and coffee, but also in chocolate, energy drinks and a few soft drinks. It is a stimulant that accelerates the functioning of the central nervous system. Athletes should not consume too much of it because they risk dehydration. To limit caffeine in coffee, I choose arabica coffee. In fact, whether in soft podsese podsground coffee or even nespresso®* compatible capsules, it contains half as much caffeine as robusta coffee! And believe it or not, long coffee (prepared with a senseo®* coffee maker for example) contains more caffeine than an espresso coffee (prepared with a nespresso® machine*)!  

Energy drink: What on earth is that?

It is a drink that causes short-term mental and physical stimulation. It is not recommended for athletes who have to carry out an intense physical activity. Indeed, it’s got a very high sugar content, which can cause digestive cramps.

According to the Canadian Health Department, when speaking of caffeine, drinking two cans of cola-type soft drinks amounts to drinking a cup of coffee. So, as sportsmen, should you rather rush to your portable coffee maker or buy soft or energy drinks?

Notice to sportsmen: caffè ma non troppo!

So, if you like espresso, put decaffeinated coffee in your portable coffee maker!

And here are some other tips against slow-downs:

- do not skip meals

- eat balanced food

- exercise regularly

- have a good hydration

What are coffee grounds?

It is the coffee powder that remains once the coffee has been brewed. Just let it dry before use.

Opinions on coffee may vary. But what is unquestionable and less known is that coffee grounds give us a satin-smooth skin. Coffee grounds collected in your portable coffee maker can make wonders ... Not to mention nespresso® capsules, nespresso® compatible capsules or lavazza® capsules once removed from your portable coffee maker! Recycling is eco-friendly and nice! Focus on the benefits of coffee grounds.

Coffee grounds for the face and the hair

Coffee grounds as a face scrub... for perfect complexion radiance. Mix coffee grounds with a little honey and/or sweet almond oil. Then massage in very soft circular motions. Leave one or two minutes before rinsing. Simple and fast!

Coffee grounds as a tensor against dark circles ... to illuminate the eyes. Mix coffee grounds with egg white and honey. Leave for a few minutes before rinsing. I just heard about it. This weekend, I’ll definitely give it a try!

Coffee grounds as an ally for dark hair only ... to give softness and shine. After the shampoo and a first rinse, massage your hair with coffee grounds before rinsing once again.

Coffee grounds for the body

Coffee grounds as a body scrub ... for a soft and supple skin. Coffee grounds can be used directly on the skin. Rub with a glove and some soap before rinsing in the shower.

Coffee grounds as an anti-cellulite weapon ... for its "fat-burning" effect and its draining virtues. Massage a generous mixture of coffee grounds and olive oil in long daily motions before rinsing in the shower. Not bad!

Coffee grounds as a natural deodorant ... to remove the odors of garlic and onion. After washing your hands, rub them with coffee grounds.

Coffee grounds are amazing! Do remember to remove them from your portable coffee maker after use.
