The Italians finish the meal with a coffee - Is it time we pick that up?
A nice satisfying meal is bound to make you sleepy and hence a cup of coffee would assist in keeping you awake.
Apart from this very obvious fact there are a few more which make complete sense and might compel you to drink coffee too.
Coffee stimulates the gastric juice production in your stomach which will help in digestion of your meal.
It will reduce your craving for an after meal dessert. Because it’s much lighter than an ice cream, it’s better that you preempt your ice cream with a coffee saving yourself of the calories.
Post meal coffee is absorbed much slower than coffee on an empty stomach as your body is busy digesting the food you ate. The caffeine is in your system for longer. Giving you a better kick with the same amount of coffee than other wise.
Wish you a pleasant switch to coffee.
I know a post meal nap would be a lot satisfying but till our bosses realize that letting us sleep is a more efficient way than forcing us to be awake - stick to this alternative!
