Coffee  can feed your body as well as your soul.
ZBest Coffee Company LLC of Columbia Missouri knows what you want, great coffee and facts about it.

Are you, like myself, as self-proclaimed trivia junkie? Or perhaps training to be a winning contestant on Jeopardy? Then this blog is for you!

Every fresh roasted coffee aficionado knows that this crave-able delectable beverage contains caffeine. But do you know that methods of preparation produce different levels at caffeine? An 8 ounce cup prepared by the drip method delivers an energizing boost at 115 milligrams of caffeine, whereas a percolated cup of Joe comes in at 80 milligrams. For those of you that still believe that instant (GASP!) coffee is acceptable you will still get 65 milligrams of caffeine in your system, although you will be missing out on the aroma and taste that only a true fresh cup of coffee can provide. There are two categories of beans Arabica and Robusta. Robusta coffee has as much as two times the caffeine as a cup of Arabica coffee. Espresso packs a whopping 90 milligrams of caffeine per tiny little espresso cup.

You say just the (nutrition) facts Ma’am …well here you go…. amongst the almost 800 chemical compounds that compose coffee and give it its distinctive taste and aroma are some common compound found on most nutrition labels. For the bargain price of an 8 ounce cup that is roasted to perfection, you will receive 0.09 grams of carbs, 0.28 grams of protein, 5 milligrams of calcium, 7 milligrams of magnesium, 7 milligrams of phosphorus, 0.5 milligrams at zinc trace amounts of vitamin b6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and folate. We say all hail the magical elixir!!
