And to help us dig deeper into the science (and joy) of coffee, we’ve teamed up with The Wood Roaster, a local specialty coffee roaster based right here in Sydney.

The benefits of applying coffee to your skin
The pure extract of unroasted (green) coffee beans is one of the most powerful sources of antioxidants in nature. It has been found to have 10 times the antioxidant properties of green tea, making it a powerful partner in the fight against premature aging.
Antioxidants combat free radicals that can speed up the aging process. They are essential for healthy skin and contribute to the prevention and reversal of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Green coffee seed extract can help protect your skin from these free radicals and promote healthier, more youthful skin.
Green coffee seed extract also boosts collagen production, helping to maintain the skin’s elasticity and plumpness, and improving the structure and texture of the skin. Blood supply to the skin is enhanced, improving circulation and providing a healthy glow, while the fatty acids hydrate the skin, providing long-lasting moisture that can prevent dryness.
The benefits of consuming coffee
Most of us would be experienced in coffee’s ability to boost our energy. The caffeine in coffee is a natural stimulant that can help you feel more alert and focused. Studies have shown that caffeine can enhance cognitive function and improve mental performance.
Perhaps not so well known is the ability of coffee to enhance our overall health. Research has also shown that coffee may help reduce the risk of several chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, liver disease, and some types of cancer.
Coffee is rich in antioxidants, which help protect your body from damage and disease. They neutralize harmful free radicals, which can damage cells and contribute to chronic disease.
Of course, as with any beverage, it's important to consume coffee in moderation. Too much caffeine can cause jitters, anxiety, and other side effects for some people. But for most people, a coffee (or two) each day can provide a variety of health benefits that can help you feel and look your best.
