Peet’s Coffee is what I’ve been drinking the past month. It’s my daily morning coffee. I really enjoy this blend. Highly recommended!
This was actually my first time trying Peet’s Coffee with the Medium Roast Brazil Minas Naturais. Because it was so tasty I plan on buying more from this coffee roaster soon.
I’d like to turn CashSherpa.com into more of a review blog. One feature I’d like recurring is coffee reviews. In general I think coffee review blogs do a poor job, I’d like to change that and provide more description coffee reviews to my readers.

I didn’t think McDonald’s coffee tasted this good. It’s definitely worth a revisit.
I’m not usually a decaf fan, but this is really good even for regular coffee.
By itself it tastes very bitter, over half of Americans drink it every day and it just might prevent people from developing Tinnitus. It’s coffee and it is not just for waking up anymore… maybe.
A recent news article found on WebMD suggests that women who drank more coffee than their peers appeared to be less likely to develop Tinnitus than women who drank less coffee or did not drink any coffee at all. Tinnitus is a condition which causes a persistent buzzing or ringing sound in their ear(s). The researchers studied over 60,000 women between the ages of 30 and 44 years old. None of these women had Tinnitus when the study began in 1991. Over the next 18 years 5,300 of these women developed Tinnitus.
The researchers found that the women who consumed as much as 450mg to 600 mg of caffeine on most days were less likely to develop Tinnitus. In fact, the women who drank less than 150 mg of caffeine appeared to be 15% more likely to experience symptoms of Tinnitus. 150 mg of caffeine is equal to approximately 12 ounces of coffee.
According to the August, 2014 issue of The American Journal of Medicine, most of the caffeine consumed by these women came from coffee. As of now it is not understood why caffeine could possibly inhibit the development of Tinnitus. It is known that caffeine can impact both the central nervous system and the inner ear. The researchers caution that this study does not prove that caffeine inhibits Tinnitus and that more studies will need to be conducted.
It’s long been suspected that coffee was good for the health, and could help with many serious diseases. Through studies and tests, people who drink coffee regularly have been found to be less likely to contract some diseases or health problems, although there had never been any definite results, and no indication as to why that was. Now, thanks to some scientists in China, we get some new and conclusive evidence that coffee can indeed help you out in major ways. Here’s why coffee is good for your health.
Several years ago, studies showed that people who drink 4 cups of coffee per day were 50% less likely to get Type-2 diabetes. Every additional cup would decrease that risk even more. It seemed fairly incredible, but the results were consistent. The coffee beans would, in fact, bring a lot of positive effects. Now, scientists from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan University, and Wuhan Institute of Biotechnology in China, have found that coffee compounds would inhibit something called human islet amyloid polypeptide, which is a substance that’s linked with diabetes. Now, they believe this is why drinking coffee can have such a strong impact on the prevention of Type-2 diabetes. It fits with the studies done so far, and could explain much as to why coffee is good for your health.
Of course, this is just the latest in good coffee research. Last year, Harvard University found that coffee drinking can help with prostate cancer and breast cancer as well. One of the studies showed that women who drank 5 cups or more per day were 57% less likely to get estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer, which is one of the most prevalent types of cancers. Also, while Alzheimer’s disease is still not officially prevented with coffee, new studies on mice have shown increased brain functions from drinkers of coffee. It could well be that mental functions in humans will end up being proven to be affected in a similar way. More studies are needed of course, but it does seem like that’s where science is headed. Within a few years, we may have conclusive studies as to the effect on coffee on the brain.
Overall, the benefits of drinking large amounts of coffee seems to be piling on lately, thanks to studies that show coffee is good for your health. The new China results on Type-2 diabetes is just the latest in a string of results that show the benefits of coffee, and why it’s important to drink a few cups every day. While this drink has not quite reached medication status, it may well be a powerful prevention.
If you follow restaurant freebies there is really no reason why you can’t get something for free weekly. How about getting a free coffee this week from Dunkin Donuts. Get your free Dunkin Donuts coffee May 11th 4pm-10pm. Luckily for everyone they have good coffee.
This is just an OK deal coming from Starbucks. Starbucks at least in Seattle seems to be running deal after deal. First it was the free coffee in the morning with coupon now this nationwide Starbucks deal. Get a Starbucks Iced Grande Beverage for only $2.00 after 2:00PM for morning customers. This is a substantial price cut from the normal $4.00 for Grande Iced Grande Coffees. The only catch (It’s a big catch) you need to show a receipt from your morning Starbucks visit. So basically you’re paying full price in the morning to get the discount in the afternoon, not to mention you spent money on gas to get there. Not a good deal in my opinion coming from Starbucks and Howard Schultz, but thought it was worth a blog post. Offer runs until Septermber 2nd 2008.
