    Carcinogens in Coffeee

    Hi Guy, as we all know, instant coffee can b loaded with carcinogens, namely Acrylamides.
    But what if... when you filter brew quality coffee, then BOIL it? It tastes quite different, and I openly admit: I LIKE it...but are there maybe some carcinogens floating around in it, is the question..
    Thanks,
    Mark

    You mentioned "quality coffee." Is it Folgers in a can, or are you brewing coffee beans that you grind and brew yourself?

    Are you filter brewing instant coffee???????


    If you filter brew instant coffee, and then you boil it, it will taste obviously different, but it will be the same coffee.

    You won't get rid of any carcinogens by boiling the coffee.

    This is strange. What is so compelling about instant coffee, moreover boiled instant coffee, that you would want to drink it? If there is a concern about carcinogens, why not just stop drinking that crap?

    Hi Rose, long time no speak. Obviously I did not make things very clear.
    I paper filter freshly ground (more or less) top quality coffee. Then it's done.
    THEN I boil it. And heat can indeed create carcinogens, so... I was wondering because instant has these, maybe they get created by prolonged heating, just guessing? Shouldn't wonder...
    But I think not too many will actually have an answer to this one, for sure, I mean. Not just some opinion...

    Mark, the after boiling thing you do ... is the taste similar to coffee that has been sitting in a pot on a burner for a while? Like old restaurant coffee? Kind of burnt tasting? Where does the instant coffee thing come into play here?
