Coffee’s main role in affecting emotions is carried out by caffeine, which increases our levels of dopamine and serotonin, otherwise known as “the happiness hormone.”

For those with a greater sensitivity to emotion, negative effects of caffeine-generated adrenaline can, too, result. One may become too excited or too happy, and too much of anything proves detrimental. This won’t seem like a problem while you’re enjoying your coffee, but escalated emotions may prohibit you from savouring the moment’s nuances. In my opinion, for better and more mindful enjoyment of coffee, you shouldn’t only be able to understand the flavours but the emotions that the brew facilitates.  You must be logged in to view this content.
