How you can make White Coffee?
In order to make White Coffee, first, the coffee beans are roasted at a lower temperature and remember you need to roast the beans for the half of the time you take for your regular coffee beans.
In simple words, white coffee means half-baked beans. And if you don’t know the exact temperature that should be taken into consideration for roasting: it is around 325 degrees for White Coffee and from 450 to 480 degrees for your regular coffee.
Well, the process is quite easy, but if you’re short of time or don’t have enough energy to indulge in the process, get your packet of White Coffee online.
Caffeine Content in White Coffee
We have been talking about this right from the beginning that the coffee beans in white coffee are not completely roasted and because of the low roasting temperatures and half-time taken for the process, the caffeine content in White Coffee in more.
For your information, the caffeine content in any type of coffee is measured by its density. The longer you roast the beans, they become less dense and you end up with less caffeine.
To make this whole clearer, understand like this: Darker coffee beans will have the least caffeine, followed by a medium roast and then light roast.
Coming back to the White Coffee, we hardly roast the coffee beans for this type of coffee drink, thus it comes with more density that further means more amount of caffeine per scoop.
Health Benefits of White Coffee
A number of coffee drinkers have to say that a cup of White Coffee has more caffeine content that their regular cup of coffee. Well, that’s true because the beans are not fully roasted, thus have 50% more caffeine content and the reason being, the coffee loses caffeine in terms of volume when roasted.
White coffee comes with a very nutty flavor and people say that it has a bolder flavor in comparison to the black coffee. Also, White Coffee loses more anti-oxidants and is also less acidic. Did you know why some coffee becomes acidic?
Well, it is due to the roasting process and since White Coffee is roasted for the half-time that of a regular coffee, it holds onto one of the powerful anti-oxidant known as Chlorogenic acid (we’ll read about this in the next section) that further makes White Coffee smoother on your stomach.
We talked about Chlorogenic Acids (CGA) in the previous section and we are here to tell you more about the same. So, the roasting process does change Chlorogenic Acids and that is responsible for many health benefits of coffee.
But what is important to keep in mind is that various blends and origins of it come with different levels of chlorogenic acids. You never know the level of CGA of a light roast in one origin has the same level in another origin of medium roast.
How do you drink your White Coffee?
Satirically, this White Coffee is often taken BLACK that means no addition of milk or cream. On the other side, everyone has their own preferences and do their own experiments with the coffee drink.
Many coffee lovers have suggested that when almond milk is added to the White Coffee’s nutty flavor, it makes it even better.
Also, if you’re the one who is prone to acid reflux or heartburn, adding dairy to the coffee beverage would be a nice option. This will help in alleviating high acidity that happens due to the light roast.
