“The intake of coffee (between 3 and 5 cups a day) has been associated with a reduction in the incidence of cardiovascular disease; it also protects against the development of various chronic diseases. However, we must not exceed, go over 400 mg. Of caffeine per day “for healthy adults (and 200 mg. for pregnant or breastfeeding women) can lead to side effects. Current evidence suggests that moderate coffee consumption can easily be part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle”. Dr. Vincenzo Capuanocardiologist, former head of the complex operational unit of cardiology and UTIC in Mercato S. Severino, during the meeting entitled “Let’s have a coffee”, organized at the “Circolo Canottieri Irno” in Salerno by the associations: “Fidapa Section of Salerno”, during led by the doctor Dina Oliva; “Club Inner Wheel Salerno Est” under the direction of the teacher Wolf Rose“Lions Club Principessa Sichelgaita”, led by the doctor Anna Maria Lurgi “Soroptimist Salerno” under the direction of the doctor Giulia De Marco. After the teacher’s greetings Maria Rosaria symbol, Vice President of the Fidapa Section in Salerno, who introduced the evening, Dr. Capuano explained that for most of the adult population, who have no particular problems, coffee is the main source of caffeine: “It is part of our culture and our culture. Social life and is often used to keep us awake and increase In addition to caffeine, coffee also contains a wide range of other substances: “Polyphenols, magnesium, potassium, vitamin B3. These substances affect the reduction of oxidative stress and can modulate lipid and sugar metabolism. Caffeine, which can also be synthesized artificially and added to food and drink, such as energy or in certain soft drinks, can reduce the perceived fatigue, increase our attention, reduce our reaction time.Consumed later in the day, caffeine can lead to sleep problems, if taken in large amounts it can cause anxiety. The intensity and occurrence of these effects are not the same for everyone because caffeine metabolism has individual differences.Caffeine can help reduce pain by increase the effectiveness of the anti-inflammatory drugs we take, for example when we have a headache. Several studies have shown a link between caffeine and Parkinson’s disease, which would help reduce the risk, and with dementia, again with a protective effect. Although it can cause small increases in blood pressure in the short term, in people who have never consumed caffeine before, studies do not show that there is a risk of blood pressure even in people who suffer from high blood pressure and who regularly drink coffee. In addition, there does not appear to be a correlation between caffeine intake and the onset of atrial fibrillation. Coffee and caffeine seem to reduce the risk of gallbladder stones. Studies of our body’s metabolism tell us that caffeine (not what is found in soft drinks) can improve energy balance by reducing appetite and increasing basal metabolism. It seems that in the short term, caffeine in people who do not regularly consume coffee, can reduce the sensitivity of our cells to insulin, studies show that moderate consumption of coffee does not have, in the long term, effects of this type and that on the other hand can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. There is no evidence that coffee consumption can increase the risk of cancer or mortality linked to oncological causes. Coffee is good for the liver, skin, heart, brain and slows down the aging process ”. The teacher told the story of coffee Gabriella Gentile Colace, The municipal council Fidapa section in Salerno, who devised and supervised the meeting: “Coffee is a break in the rhythm of life that is always hectic, it is our friend when we wake up and our companion after lunch. Four billion cups of coffee are drunk every day in the world; at least half of Italians drink a cup of coffee a day.Coffee is to be shared: it should be drunk in company.In Naples, coffee is a symbol of social exchange and the “suspended coffee” was invented in Naples, which is an act of love for those who have not opportunity to buy even a coffee “. Professor Gentile said that coffee in Italy appeared in the late 16th century and celebrated the birth of the historic cafes: “The” Caffè Florian “, 1720, in Venice, The” Caffè Tommaseo “in Trieste 1825, the” Caffè Michelangiolo “, “Paszkowski”, “Gilli” and “Le Giubbe Rosse” in Florence, “Caffè Pedrocchi” in Padua, “Caffè Greco” in Rome and “Caffè Gambrinus” in Naples: all were centers of aggregation and culture. ”Professor Gentile also explained that coffee is used as an anti-cellulite and also for painting.After reading a few passages dedicated to coffee by Luciano de Crescenzo, Edoardo De Filippo And Matilde Seraoby the doctor Lissie TarantinoFormer chairman of the Soroptimist Club Salerno, Dr. Michele Cantarella, The AST Specialty Coffee Association for the ancient “Torrefazione Castorino” in Salerno, an authorized trainer in the world of education in the quality coffee sector, explained that coffee is part of the Rubiacee family and that it exists about 125 different types of coffee: “But only two, Arabica and Robusta, are marketed in about seventy countries in the world: Brazil is the first producer in the world while the largest producer of Robusta, which is the coffee we import the most, it is Vietnam” . Cantarella also explained that Robusta contains twice as much caffeine compared to Arabica and that it in the cup has more bitterness, less acidity and more fullness: “Arabica represents 60% of the market, has a more complex and the cup has more acid, sweetness and a lighter body”. Cantarella also explained that coffee is originally a plant: “The fruit of the plant is drupe, which is like a cherry, where the whole beans are that before they are sold, after harvest, they get processing processes”. Cantarella also dismissed some notions of coffee: “Many people think that drinking a strong coffee is drinking a stronger coffee: this is false; that a long coffee, because it is diluted, is less strong: it is false, because the more coffee “you extract, the more caffeine you get in you. When you go to the bar you just have to ask for an espresso and that’s all: the barista, who is trained, knows how to make a good coffee”. Dr. Cantarella advised against drinking frothy coffee and having more cream in the coffee is not a sign of quality: “The less cream we find, the more quality the coffee. Coffee should be drunk without sugar because it is not bitter.” coffee is also important: “It can not be sold for 1 euro because there will be an element in the supply chain that will not be paid for. A quality coffee should cost at least € 1.50”. Cantarella also explained that with the machines with tubs, which cost a little more, you can make a better coffee than the machines with capsules and also the secret of making a good coffee with Moka: “For every liter of water you need to add 70 grams of ground coffee and add coffee in the filter without pressing it or making piles. ”The professor’s personal collection of coffee pots, grinders, sugar bowls and cups from different eras was displayed in the room. Maria Rosaria Pagnani, Former president of the “Fida section in Salerno”, who explained the art of offering coffee: “It is purely feminine. The coffee bean, in its form, represents femininity”. The professor was the one who gilded the evening Matteo Cantarella who accompanied himself on the guitar has interpreted famous pieces dedicated to coffee including “Na tazzulella e cafè” by Pino Daniele; “O café” av Domenico Modugno; “Seven thousand coffee” by Alex Britti and “Don Rafè” av Fabrizio De Andrè.
