The health benefits of drinking Kopi Luwak are manifold:

  • Kopi luwak has very low acidity - meaning it does not cause stomach issues like other coffees

  • Kopi luwak, like some other coffees, can protect an individual from several cancers (number one among these being colon cancer)
  • Coffee has been shown to protect individuals from cognitive decline and dementia later in life - and Kopi Luwak enhances this benefit 
  • Kopi luwak has antibacterial properties that help strengthen and protect your teeth while causing minimal staining compared to normal coffee 
  • Drinking kopi luwak has psychological benefits that improve your mood and increase your energy beyond a standard caffeine boost
    • This benefit is largely due to priming your brain for success. When you consume the world's best coffee you raise the likelihood of having a successful day. In some individuals, this positive effect can last weeks.
  • Kopi luwak can help those with migraines and other headaches. Due to the vasoconstriction effects of caffeine, kopi luwak is an ideal choice for those suffering from migraines. Due to the low acidity, kopi luwak is still suitable for migraines accompanied with stomach pain - unlike typical coffee. 

What are some other benefits of coffee?

Coffee is loaded with antioxidants

We all know these little guys are supposed to be great for us. The benefits of antioxidants are listed in dozens of studies, but the main benefits include cancer and heart disease prevention.

Whilst we all should eat up out fruits and veggies, we would also be well off to have an extra shot of espresso in the morning because coffee is the number one source of antioxidants in our diet, according to researchers from the University of Scranton. In fact, Kaya Kopi Luwak has even more antioxidants than a cup of Acai berries, which are known as a super food.

Coffee shields your liver

The old liver can take a bit of a pounding sometimes. The poor, long suffering organ is tasked with filtering the impurities out of our blood system and, when it’s 2 AM and you are still at the bar, you’ve got to do everything you can to help it out.

Coffee has got your back. A study from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program in Oakland, California looked at data from over 125,000 people, over a 22-year period. They concluded that people who drank at least one cup of coffee per day were 20% less likely to develop liver cirrhosis. Now – we’re not saying that you can indulge in a 72-hour keg party every week. But if, like most of us, you like to indulge in a little drinking every now and then, coffee may help to mitigate the long-term damage - a little bit.

Coffee makes you smile

A study from the National Institute of Health found that people who drank coffee every day were about 10% less likely to report symptoms of depression than non-coffee drinkers. It should also be noted that a separate study by the American Academy of Neurology found that people who drank caffeinated beverages (like Coke) every day were 30% more likely to be diagnosed with symptoms of depression than non-soda drinkers.

So, it’s not just the caffeine high of coffee that makes you feel good, there’s something in coffee that is not present in other caffeinated products that is doing you good, and making you happy. Is it magic? Experts think it’s more likely to be the antioxidants. But it could be magic.

Coffee is flexible

Beyond all the studies facts and figures, there are more down to earth reasons to drink coffee. Coffee is great because it can be tailored to fit your tastes. Soda comes in one flavor – sweet! You can drink coffee black and enjoy the complex bitter tastes of the roasting process. You can add sugar if you prefer that sweetness to take the edge off – but you control how much. You can add milk if you enjoy more of a creamy flavor.

You know exactly what is in your coffee – especially if you buy your own beans and brew your own coffee at home.

Never feel guilty about what you eat or drink though. Food and drink are necessities and privileges that both keep us alive and make our lives worth living.
