Altering cholesterol is just one of the ways your daily cup of coffee affects your body. If you have elevated LDL cholesterol, should you cut down on your coffee?
Coffee does not include any form of cholesterol, as it is produced in the liver of animals.
However, some alcohols in coffee affect how cholesterol metabolizes in human body. Thus, indirectly affects cholesterol levels.
Extraction of these alcohols are mostly related with grounds contact period with water. So, we can say you should take care about the brewing method.
For example, cold-brew increases the cholesterol levels the most. Drip-brew and instant coffee the least. Turkish coffee increases a lot. French-press increases quite much. Espresso is somewhere in the middle. Pour-over filters are increasing just a little.
