O how I love me some french pressed coffee, the aroma, the warmth, the…..hold on I need to make another batch in order to write this.
OK that’s better, now where were we? O yes Coffee. There is no doubt about it that coffee is a driving force in the working world, whether you are a CEO of a fortune 500 company or a writer like myself, Coffee makes things happen.
Recently there have been a lot of rumors going around as to which coffee is the healthiest and some various other methods to increase it’s “power” of effectiveness on the body. Last year there was a gentleman by the name of Dave Asprey of BulletProof Coffee, who came on Joe Rogans Podcast, by the way if you haven't heard his podcast yet you should check it out, he has a wide arrange of guests that come on.
Anyway’s, when Dave came on claiming that his methods of getting not only the best coffee but also making it “bulletproof” coffee, please don’t shoot yourself or someone else, you are not literally bulletproof (here is a video proving it). The claims he made seem to make sense, but then again how many of us are scientists who can effectively determine if what he said was fact or not. Joe Rogan himself even started selling his coffee on his affiliate website Onnit.com, though he has since wish he hadn't.
Now Joe has plenty of friends that come on and give him great advice and proof to back it up, Dave Asprey was not one of them. Since Joe aired that podcast he has had Dave’s coffee tested for bacteria or fungus to see if his coffee is really in fact “healthier” than Starbucks. Well it turns out Dave was full of shit, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't make a great car salesmen.
I’m all for someone like Dave to sell his version of coffee, but once you start claiming it’s better than everyone else when in fact it isn't and you are profiting, then I have a problem. False advertising is such a bogus way to get people to buy your product, and though it may have worked a lot better some years ago, the internet has destroyed that in a good way for consumers.
I don't want to sit here and write out the facts, as I myself am not expert. But here is a link to the original podcast as well as a link to what Dave Asprey claims. just remember that Joe has confirmed that Dave’s coffee beans are no more healthier than majority of others that are available.
Now with all this being said, Dave Asprey does offer some great advice as to be healthy so don't discredit everything. Just don't take it at face value and do more research from multiple sources.
