This is a cooling coffee drink that has a slight hint of heat! Chilis in small amounts stimulate circulation and the digestive processes. But when consumed in large amounts it will cause a cooling effect (so add the amount you like). This helps to explain why people living in hot tropical climates are apt to eat a lot of them. The cooling sensation is produced in two different ways. In one way the body (especially the face) starts to sweat; the more perspiration that gathers on the skin, the cooler a person will feel. The other way is through the release of endorphins by capsaicin into the bloodstream of people who eat them. These natural opiates in the brain affect the body’s own internal temperature, lowering it a few degrees. Made for RSC #10Food for thought"A volcano is a mountain with hiccups."
