    I really have to hand it to you Tepin, you do scrounge some excellent links.


    CAFESTEROL?
    I would have guessed it was what made you fat after eating too many cafe cakes but its a legit compound found in coffee.

    and...

    Johann Sebastian Bach is thought to have been a devoted coffee lover and wrote a secular work "The coffee cantata - Kaffe Kantate" in 1732 that includes an aria:

    "Mm! How sweet coffee tastes! More delicious than a thousand kisses, sweeter by far than muscatel wine! I must have my coffee."

        So arabica beans have calcium, iron, niacine, protein and thiamine in them - I always knew that coffee was good for you......
