Coffee Myths - Part Dos

View descriptionShare

In this episode, Kenneth once again sits down with Dylan Morse of Tinker Coffee in Indianapolis to look at more common coffee myths. Between them, they explain whether they are true or not, sharing the facts behind the myths including a couple of weird ones, for example, coffee ruins your teeth or stunts your growth.


  • Is coffee addictive? If it is, how big of a problem is that?
  • Does espresso have more caffeine than drip coffee? – it depends, why that is the case is explained in the episode.
  • All coffee does not contain the same amount of caffeine. What factors impact the levels are explained.
  • Why do most people struggle to make coffee at home that tastes as good as the cup they drink at a local café?
  • How to choose the right water to make your coffee at home.
  • Coffee does have to mature a little after the roast to taste its best.
  • Is decaf full of chemicals?
  • Can dark roast coffee upset your stomach?
  • Does coffee stunt your growth?



‘If you're using a really great coffee, the flavor of an espresso is so intense that it's more of a drinking experience.’

‘The coffee bean has no idea where it is.’

‘Having that perfect balance of the electrolytes in the water helps with the extraction.’
