Our thoughts at Iron City Coffee
Coffee is very enjoyable to us and a delicacy when drinking specialty coffee. We enjoy the various bean’s flavors and experimenting with the different profiles at our roasting facility. It makes it even better when there are health benefits as well. As for me I have issues with my heart. If studies show it could possibly help me in the long run, I’m all for it. Now i am taking this with a grain of salt and I don’t think coffee is the miracle drug for all our health problems. It can’t do us any harm in taking the studies word for it though, right? I can enjoy what I love plus it’s not bad for me. Sounds like a win in my book. Anyways we hope you enjoyed this tip of the week.
