I do miss some of the Italian coffee. One B&B owner near Bassano was (justly) proud of his espresso. Maybe I'll make it back across the pond in a few years.
Are you using the Flush app?
Yes! Although we really are doing fine without it. Don't know much about the diuretic impact, as I seem to be the one drinking the coffee and Rhonda is the one keeping an eye on the bagno situation.
Isn't coffee a diuretic?
That theory was first established in 1928 but has since been discounted. The diuretic effects are minimal and coffee is as good a source of hydration as water
with the added effects of caffeine.
Whew! That is good news.
(Although pretty sure I already knew that).
I miss coffee at our meets. European meets always have coffee stalls among the food purveyors at the big events. A very nice prep for runs.
An espresso machine on the way to the start? A local kid does a coffee stall at the farmers market here using a jury rigged capsule machine for hot water. He brews the coffee himself. It's a mean cup. (Pour over, not espresso.)
"who had a habit of..."
So as long as you drink coffee regularly, its diuretic effects are minimal. Doesn't say it ain't when consumed sporadically.
