What Makes Coffee The Best Travel Companion?

Alex Melen

People all over the world enjoy coffee, and many can’t start their day without it. But what makes it a great drink to have while traveling? Here are some reasons why we love having coffee as a travel companion.

Prevents Depression

If you’ve ever had your travels eclipsed by worries at home, you’ll understand why coffee can be a necessary travel companion. Travel can highlight emotions of anxiety that distract us from our surroundings. Not the best feeling when we’re on vacation and want to enjoy our trip. Studies have shown that people who consume coffee regularly are far less likely to experience depression, especially women. The next time you’re traveling, make sure to pack your favorite coffee with you to keep the gloom away so that you can enjoy your trip to the fullest. Or make sure to add a local coffee shop to your itinerary!

Improves Performance

Travel can quickly make us feel tired. Although we might have been excited about the trip, the laborious process of getting to our destination may take the gleam off our travels. Here’s where coffee comes in handy. Coffee can help revitalize you and shake off those feelings of fatigue. This is because coffee contains ergogenic acid, which gives you a boost both mentally and physically.

Prevents Illnesses

Did you know that coffee has more antioxidants than cocoa or green tea? You can find around 1,000 antioxidants in unprocessed coffee beans alone! When traveling around the world, one thing you may be worried about is falling ill. You don’t want to have to spend your vacation having to isolate yourself because of a cold, or worrying about getting to a doctor’s! With your daily coffee, the antioxidants within can help fight the free radicals in your body.

Prevents Forgetfulness

One of the worst things that can happen on vacation is you forgetting to pack your valuables. You don’t want to be at a train station without your wallet, or forget the pouch with your passport after leaving a meal. The caffeine found in coffee can help improve your brain’s capacities. Caffeine provides a surge to the part of your brain that’s responsible for helping you concentrate and remember things.

Negates the Effects of Flying

Being on a flight can be taxing on the body, especially if it’s a long-haul flight. For one thing, being on a flight can result in dehydration. A cup of coffee can provide you with hydration and a shot of energy that will help restore your body to its full capabilities. The next time you’re feeling tired on a plane, you may want to get a cup of coffee to sip on while watching the clouds drift past outside your window.

Don’t Forget Your Coffee!

The next time you’re traveling, you might want to pack your favorite coffee with you. Coffee bags provide an easy and convenient way to enjoy coffee on the go. Our Capresso On-the-Go Personal Coffee Maker is also handy for travel. Remember, though, that it’s always best to take things in moderation; it’s not advised to consume more than two to three cups of coffee a day. But with all the benefits coffee can bring, we recommend enjoying a moderate amount of coffee on your travels!
