I’m trying to keep an open mind… really, I am. I’ve been pondering Kenneth Davids’ most recent coffee reviews, Health-Enhanced Coffees. And while I’m on-board with the idea that coffee is actually much more healthful than we might have ever realized I’m much more ambivalent about doctoring up a perfectly good cup with vitamins and medicinal what-have-you. You might say I’m finding the idea hard to swallow.
Happily enough, Kenneth himself seems of the same mind, and closes:
“…it’s hard not to conclude that if coffee is indeed as health-enhancing as it now appears to be, then we might be better off simply picking a good one, roasting it sensitively and enjoying it in its naked glory, without doing peculiar things to it like steaming it or roasting it in a sealed drum or adding things to it.”
