Start the day without coffee? Unthinkable! For many of us, breakfast rhymes with good coffee ☕, and this is even more true in this back-to-school period. But have you ever wondered which coffee is best suited to wake you up? Filter coffee or espresso? Arabica or Robusta? 🤔 Not easy... In fact, it depends on several criteria, but above all... on you. We explain everything in this article, the Quai Sud coffee selection and more for a good morning wake-up call.

Filter coffee, espresso… Which coffee to drink in the morning?

Not everyone needs the same dose of caffeine when they wake up. In reality, no one really needs it when they get out of bed 🤨. Yes, yes you read that right. Every morning between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., our body secretes a kind of natural coffee, a hormone that wakes you up: cortisol. Only, at this early hour, you may be more sensitive to the charm of your pillow… than to that of your cortisol level 😴.

This is where caffeine comes to the rescue! It increases cortisol in the blood, providing the little boost that ends up waking you up. If all coffees contain it, it is above all the filtration method that releases the caffeine in greater or lesser quantities. The longer the coffee is in contact with water, the more caffeine it releases.. An espresso will therefore contain little caffeine compared to a filter coffee. The champion in all categories is coffee made with a French press, with a filtration time of 5-6 minutes.

In summary, to start your day off right, drink a percolator coffee (espresso or lungo) instead if you're a morning person, your cortisol will do the rest. Those who have more difficulty getting out of bed and feeling good awake will choose a filter coffee or a slow coffee (at the French press). It's a first step towards your ideal morning coffee ☕.

What coffee to wake up to?

Now that you're well equipped, it's time for coffee! It's as much a matter of taste as of character. Those who prefer a tonic awakening will choose an arabica-robusta blend. Powerful and complex, it is a full-bodied coffee Butter dense and unctuous. It promotes concentration, which makes it perfect for those who have meetings in the morning.

Those for whom revivals are really difficult and who need a boost will turn to Italian roasted coffee, with more full-bodied flavors. A little milk foam will soften its bitterness and allow romantics to leave tender messages for their chosen one ❤. A little tenderness is also good to start the day!

If you're more of a grumpy Smurf when you wake up, like "don't talk to me until I've had my coffee" 😒, a fruity and balanced coffee like a pure arabica ethiopian mocha will suit you. Aromatic without being aggressive, Sidamo mocha gives off fine aromas of white flowers and red fruits. Ideal to put you in a good mood.

Finally, gourmets, as well as those who need a sweet start to the day, will be seduced by flavored coffee. Vanilla, caramel, chocolate... In addition to their gourmet aromas, these coffees allow you to vary the pleasures every day 🥐🧁🍫.
