If you're someone who loves a little extra kick (and by kick I mean booze) in your coffee, this alcoholic coffee bean technology is about to rock your world. Scientists have discovered a process where they create a new kind of 80-proof liquor that is distilled from Portuguese coffee beans.
This development has both pros and cons. The good news is through this process the coffee's flavor isn't lost or diluted, so if you drink coffee for the taste, you're in luck. However, the caffeine content is lost, and since alcohol is a depressant, this beverage is likely to slow you down rather than wake you up. The alcohol also adds a bitter edge to the coffee, which some might not enjoy. However, over time they may find a way to alter this.
