Oh Oregon with your amazing amount of caffeinated aging hipsters, and you're penchant for all things coffee we knew you'd spread coffee's pleasures to tourists but to life in the sea as well? A new study from Portland State University researchers has shown that the Northwest's fame as a destination for coffee (and caffeinated techies) does indeed have some environmental costs. Waters off the coast of Oregon were found to have elevated levels of caffeine. Where does the caffeine come from? Humans.

Caffeine In Coffee Delay's Alzheimer's and 7 Other Benefits

benefitsofcoffeee.JPG

Over at the Huffington Post there's more good news for those of us who can't function without our coffee and the caffeine it comes with. Researchers from the University of South Florida and University of Miami have found that higher caffeine consumption is linked with a delayed onset of Alzheimer's disease. That's good news for everyone who is at least drinking 3 cups a day.

"These intriguing results suggest that older adults with mild memory impairment who drink moderate levels of coffee -- about 3 cups a day -- will not convert to Alzheimer's disease -- or at least will experience a substantial delay before converting to Alzheimer's," says study researcher Dr. Chuanhai Cao.

New research suggests while most of us love to drink coffee to increase our energy and get more done, it may in fact have the opposite effect. Research, conducted at the University of British Columbia, suggests that for individuals who are more willing to concentrate and exert effort to achieve their goals than others, caffeine--as well as other stimulants like amphetamines--can actually decrease motivation.

We've never been much for "chaw" but then along came Grinds. The Grinds Coffee Pouch works just like bagged chaw does. You simply put a pack into your lip and leave it there. It "brews" in your natural juices, eliminating the need for a spit cup and the transfer of caffeine is complete.

Each tin contains 20 packets and comes in Mocha, Mint Chocolate, and Cinnamon Roll. These pouches sell in three-packs for $13 at Grinds.

AeroShot Single Serve Caffeine in a Shell

aeroshot_pure_energy.jpg

So far we've seen just about every type of caffeine inducing "shot" but this one takes the top spot. Each AeroShot cartridge contains six to eight puffs of a fine powder composed of vitamin B and 100 milligrams of caffeine. That's enough good stuff to wake you up in the morning, or keep you going throughout your day. The AeroShots are calorie free, and the AeroShot has no discernable flavor.

Created by Harvard professor David Edwards, who along with Tom Hadfield started a company called Breathable Foods. We currently we're enjoying foods mostly by drinking and eating - but now breathing too? Maybe there will be sniffable coffee soon. Expect AeroShots in about 90 days in Boston and New York markets.

Woman-Coffee-525x351.jpg

Here's some good coffee related news for a Friday - a woman’s daily dose of coffee may do more than just keep her perky and awake - it may just make it less likely they'll fall into depression. According to a study of over 50,000 females, a women who drank two or more cups of coffee every day was less likely to be diagnosed with depression over a 10-year span. Women who drank two to three cups of coffee were 15 percent less likely to be treated for depression, while those who drank four or more had a 20 percent lower risk.

So - our take? DRINK MORE COFFEE! :-)
