As you’re enjoying the last rays of summer, consider that in a few years you could be lathering on the coffee to prevent skin cancer. Findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science suggests that chemicals commonly found in coffee have the ability to absorb UV radiation when applied directly to the skin. Researchers at Rutgers University genetically engineered mice to suppress the same enzyme that caffeine does in humans and have found that they were slower to develop skin cancer. Because of its ability to suppress ATR, the enzyme responsible for turning damaged skin cells cancerous, scientists have suggested that caffeine could be added to sunscreens to boost protection levels.
In a strange twist, caffeine molecules may also help you develop a nice tan in addition to protecting your skin from tumors and cancer. Caffeine has actually been shown to stimulate pigment cells, urging them to produce more color. So, a safer tan may not be too far on the horizon.
If you're tired of the same old drinks, break out of the rut with a creative latte. This month's recipe is perfect for the adventurous latte lovers out there.
In a tall 16oz glass, combine the espresso, syrup and milk. Stir the contents and add ice. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired, and enjoy!
With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, may the luck...and drinks, of the Irish be with you. Given the upcoming festivities, now is as good a time as any to take a look at the history of one of the most (in)famous, drinks in the world—the Irish Coffee.
In true Celtic fashion, think Leprechauns and pots of gold, the origins of the Irish Coffee begins with a local folklore...Legend has it that the drink was invented in a cafe at the now-defunct Foynes Airport. In 1943, on a particularly nasty winter evening, a flight bound for Botwood, Newfoundland made the critical decision to return to Foynes after several hours in the air. Consider that 1943 was during WWII and commercial air travel was really in its infancy—think well-heeled men and women on a flying-boat voyage. The circumstances of the diverted flight were trying at best and left passengers a little bit more than peeved.
Upon making the decision to head back to Foynes, the captain reportedly sent a Morse-code message to the control tower, alerting ground operations personnel of the impending return. At the terminal, preparations were made to welcome back the crew and passengers. I know, you're skeptical already; but keep in mind, this was the 1940s...flying was a glitzy affair.
Back to the regularly scheduled story...Head chef Joe Sheridan of the airport restaurant was hastily asked to make something to warm the passengers and lift their spirits. He decided to...well...add a little spirit to their drinks. After all what could keep you warmer and happier than a hot coffee and some good old Irish whiskey? As the night progressed and everybody had been served, one of the passengers approached Sheridan to thank him for the hospitality. Making small talk, the passenger asked if Brazilian coffee had been used to prepare the drink...To which Sheridan responded "No, that was Irish Coffee." The rest is history.
From that night forward, Irish Coffee was served to all passengers going through Foynes Airport. The tradition continues to this day; dignitaries arriving at Shannon Airport are still welcomed with a warm cup of Irish Coffee. Want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style?

Having tried this package twice I agree with Jeffrey the Barak. A mixture of excellent and can't-compete. I no longer purchase the sampler. Malabar Gold is good, Illy's is the old-standby. Worth mentioning are Java Joe's Espresso Adoration and Espresso Deluxe. The WLL Buzzopolis is worth trying as well.

In order of preference: 1) the Malabar Gold is the nicest coffee of any kind I have ever tasted. It is the nicest espresso I have ever tasted. It is 99% perfect, the 1% being lost because often the crema has dissapated before the drink is drunk. 2) The Illy Espresso is as good as everyone says. There is a certain aftertaste that puts it in 2nd place behind the Malabar Gold. many U.S. cafes serve Illy and its easier to find than my 1st place choice. 3) If it weren't for the two coffees above, the Torrefazione Settebello would be my 2nd favorite behind a Culver City, CA local blend called Caffe Vera, which was my all time favorite until I got the Malabar Gold. In the company of Malabar Gold, the Torrefazione Settebello just can't compete, but is still excellent and delicious. 4) Poor Lavazza! The huge blue 2.2lb bag of Lavazzo Gold is universally disliked by all who try it in my house. I've played with the grind and the pull, but it has a bad taste mixed in with its potentially nice taste. I used to use the Lavazza Rosso in the 1980's and I recognize some of the same taste notes in the Gold, but the inclusion of this coffee in the WLL super auto sampler pack makes the whole thing a poor bargain. I gave it one last try today, but ended up vacuuming it out of the grinder and giving up.
Espresso, Cafe Crema, Capuccino.
Super Automatic Gaggia Syncrony Digital
Yes, all four do, at least at first!
A good package of coffees...rated as follows: 1. Malabar Gold....richest flavor, best crema, almost sweet and caramelly taste. 2. Illy....nice flavor, no bitterness, thinner and lighter crema than Malabar Gold. 3. Lavazza D'Oro...very similar to Illy, maybe not quite as full a taste...still, a good choice. 4. Torrefazione Setebello....my least favorite....left an earthy, smoky aftertaste...not as rich as the others...not bad, but nowhere close to the previous three. A really good way to check out some of the leading brands..unfortunately, you'll probably enjoy the most expensive of them the most!
Capresso Espresso Pro
yes, but is very dependant on the type of coffee
I am getting a Jura ENA 9 Superauto machine.. I am not sure what beans to use.. Can you help me with this.. I did place 2 orders that i want cancelled because I seen this sampler set. Do any of the Whole Latte Love beans work well in these machines? I know in superautomatics low oil beans should be used.
