Subject: Decaf Coffee: are the beneficial flavonoids all there?Does Reg Coffee have more?
 

Due to caffeine's possible effect in increasing the blood pressure, I am trying to drink decaf as much as possible.

The options in finding great tasting decaf coffee beans to buy seem to be far fewer.  Any suggestions please?

Some have indicated that the beneficial flavonoids in coffee might be reduced or, somehow stripped away by the decaf process.

May I ask if anyone knows more about this?   I've tried to search for this but came up with very little solid information/research on this topic.

Thank you in advance.

Although caffeine can slightly increase your blood pressure, it does not cause chronic hypertension. I cannot specifically answer your question about flavonoids, but some medical studies suggest that in contrast to regular coffee decaf might have a negativ effect on on blood sugar levels or LDL cholesterol.

Personnally I have yet to drink any decaf espresso that comes even close to regular beans. YMMV!
