WIRED: “What’s Actually Inside an Average Cup of Coffee”
LOL – I love coffee AND chemistry, so this little vid from the folks at WIRED magazine is a two-fer for me.
Ok, I also (sort of) enjoy stuff that (gently) twists the tails of the “chemophobes” in our midst. You know, the ones that make a distinction between “natural” foods and the stuff with all the “chemicals.”
It’s a chemical world – the WIRED account just scratches the surface of the chemicals that contribute to coffee’s bitterness, acidity and aroma – more than 800, according to this ACS article.
Good stuff! 🙂
