Why you should mix coffee into your cream

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Scientists have found coffee consumption to be associated with reduced risk of heart-related illnesses, diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, while drinking tea is linked to reduced risks of stroke, diabetes and depression
  • Adding cream to coffee — and for some, to tea — changes more than just taste, but it’s an argument that’s been ongoing for decades
  • When you mix two blendable liquids, they usually combine immediately, but when there’s that brief delay before it sinks, as there is when milk is added to coffee, the base of the milk heats the surface area under it, causing it to cool
  • Tea connoisseurs debate the optimal temperature of the water used to make the perfect cup, with some saying it should be kept at the boiling point even as it’s being poured, with further argument that water shouldn’t be boiled more than once
  • At a tea party, scientists decided an impromptu experiment would decide if milk or tea should be poured in the cup, a discussion that ended up being the basis for statistical analysis that continues to this day

Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world. Statistics show that more than half the population in the U.S. drink coffee on a daily basis. Further, those individuals drink 3.1 cups of joe every single day.

In the last several years, coffee has been identified — as has that other popular drink, tea — as a healthy beverage if consumed in optimal amounts. Coffee drinking is associated with reduced risk of an early death and heart-related illnesses, cancer, diabetes, cirrhosis and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Tea has been linked to reduced risks of stroke, diabetes and depression, as well as improved blood pressure, lower rates of obesity and moderated glucose levels.
