Here at Coffex Coffee Roasters, we love the coffee roast as much as you do. Our morning rituals might be similar to yours without you even knowing it.

That morning cup of joe, the smell of freshly brewed coffee, the sound of milk frothing and the first sip of delicious dark decadent coffee. It's hypnotic properties boils down to one very important alkaloid. 

Caffeine

Impressively, caffeine can transform from a solid to a gaseous phase without undergoing an intermediate phase (i.e. liquid) in a process called sublimation. *coffee chemistry

It's solubility in water is increased 30-fold in coffee brewing temperatures and thus it readily dissolves into solution. It is also possibly the sole reason why people choose to drink coffee over other numerous beverages. *coffee chemistry

These are just some of the amazing properties of this well known compound.
