    strong vs diluted coffee and health

    Does anyone here know about the health benefits of strong vs diluted coffee? A french person who swears by her thimble of super strong espresso told me vaguely about some health advantage of not diluting coffee.
    I personally cannot stand any other coffee than the strongest espresso - I simply can't get down a cup of regular brewed coffee. I live in a remote area where nobody makes a decent espresso, but every time I get to NYC I HAVE to go to one of my 3 favorite coffee shops and have the real thing. I am beginning to see a correlation (but I'm not sure) between how my stomach reacts when I drink espresso that's not very strong or french press coffee: I get this uncomfortable jittery sensation in my stomach after just one cup - it lasts for many hours. Whereas I can drink several strong espressos with no negative effect.

    Any comments?

    i can help

    have you ever thaught of purchasing a small 3 cup espresso brewing pot?

    i have the same problem as you, i cant stand weak coffee.
    when i drink the normal brew, i fill the filter to the limit and sometimes pour it through a second time. that normally does the trick. it takes longer but its worth it.

    also, if you can get hold of an espresso pot, i would recommend that you use the darkest roast you can find, seeing that you dont have access to many deli's or coffee shops to purchase espresso.

    let me know.
    i wish you the best of luck!
    some people have pearly whites.....others drink coffee!

    May I recommend that you purchase online a stovetop Moka Pot. Moka is as strong as Espresso when brewed correctly, and some of us think it tastes better than steam-brewed espresso or coffee from a French press. Here is the one I use:

    You will need some premium, fresh roasted coffee beans. Some of the Forum members will send you samples if you ask. I like Papua New Guinea coffee from here:Papua New Guinea Gourmet Coffee - Fresh Roasted & Shipped Daily This would be a good start for your tasting adventure. I buy a pound of whole beans at a time, and grind just before brewing. I use and recommend one of these:

    This is an inexpensive, fully adjustable ceramic burr grinder. Pick one of these: 10 Best Hand Coffee Grinders

    I also like a good insulated 6.5oz cup, such as these, which match perfectly the capacity of the above 3-shot Moka Pot. Also available as a glass with no handle, if you prefer.

    Enjoy your coffee, and share it with someone you love, if possible.
