The health benefits of drinking coffee
The health benefits of coffee have been well documented in recent years and coffee consumption has been linked with a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, stroke, and cancer. Furthermore, coffee consumption has also been associated with a reduced risk of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression.
Coffee offers many health benefits and yet consumption is low in some countries
Despite the extensive health benefits of coffee consumption still remains relatively low in many parts of the world. According to the World Health Organization, only around 30% of the world’s population drinks coffee. In Indonesia, coffee consumption is even lower at just 12% of the population.
Coffee is a luxury in places like Indonesia
There are many reasons why coffee consumption is low in Indonesia. One of the main reasons is that coffee is still considered to be an expensive commodity. Coffee beans from Indonesia, such as Sumatra coffee, are among the most expensive in the world. Furthermore, coffee brewing equipment, such as espresso machines, can also be very costly. Sadly, this prevents many Indonesians from enjoying the health benefits of coffee.
As a result of these high costs, many people in Indonesia are unable to afford to drink coffee on a regular basis. However, there are a number of ways to make drinking coffee more affordable. For example, coffee beans can be bought in bulk and roasted at home. Espresso machines can also be purchased second-hand or rented from coffee shops.
