Despite how crappy your Monday mornings can be, a grande cup of cabernet sauvignon probably isn’t the best beverage to help you start your day. However, it’s now possible to enjoy the same heart health benefits of red wine in your morning coffee, thanks to science.
Glen Miller, an organic chemist and chair of the Chemistry Department at the University of New Hampshire, said he's created a patented process of infusing Arabica coffee beans with resveratrol, the heart-healthy antioxidant in the skins of grapes that are used to produce red wine, according to a report by the Associated Press. Each cup of the the benefits-rich brew apparently contains the same amount of antioxidants you'd get from drinking a glass of red wine. Needless to say, you'll experience a different kind of buzz.
