Question: Should we drink water before or after coffee?


It’s recommended to drink 2 glasses of water before drinking 1 cup of coffee. That way, we can enjoy the aftertaste of coffee longer. If we drink the water right after the coffee, Baristas could think that we didn’t like the coffee and that we need to flush our mouth. But let’s not worry about others, let’s take care about ourselves. Let’s drink plenty of water with coffee – the best would be before.

Sparkling water works well to neutralize aftertastes of food. Fresh milk efficiently neutralizes unpleasant coffee aftertastes.

Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface It is vital for all known forms of life. On Earth, 96.5% of the planet’s crust water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of ice and liquid water suspended in air), and precipitation. Only 2.5% of this water is freshwater, and 98.8% of that water is in ice (excepting ice in clouds) and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth’s freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products greater quantity of water is found in the earth’s interior.
