Who knew that there was a way to further improve the benefits of our necessitated morning drink, beyond caffeine?A University of New Hampshire chemist has created a coffee varietal that has just as many antioxidants as wine by infusing high-quality Arabic coffee with resveratrol, the chemical found in wine that has heart-healthy antioxidant effects. The resulting product is CoffVee: the coffee that makes you feel almost as good as a glass of wine.
Glenn Miller, who founded Vera Roasting Company, claims that each cup of his coffee (which comes in Colombian and dark French roast) contains the same amount of antioxidants as a glass of wine. Vera Roasting Company officially launched on December 8.
Miller developed the process for adding resveratrol to coffee in his kitchen. Originally he applied the process to both water and tea, but eventually settled on coffee.
“We think we’re on the verge of making the transformation of the coffee industry,” Miller told the Portsmouth Herald.
