Coffee Myths

Can coffee, or, to be more scientific, caffeine, create dependency, as drugs do? Are the historical origins of coffee South American? East African? Is decaffeinated coffee more harmful than “real” coffee? Is coffee bad for your heart? Your liver? Not as good for your health as tea? And then… can you use the loos in a coffee shop without buying a coffee?

An unavoidable and almost planet-wide element of society, the consumption of coffee is also the object of a number of false ideas and scientific inaccuracies…  Here is a selection of articles to clear up a few things concerning this emblematic drink.
