Is coffee healthy? The simple answer to this would be yes, but coffee drinkers need to understand that all coffee is not created equal. The antioxidant capacity of any coffee depends on the coffee bean quality, the timing of the harvest and the harvest region.
Using the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity score, developed by Tufts University, coffee drinkers may determine the health benefits of drinking a particular brand. This score measures the strength and duration of antioxidant protection offered by a product.
