“Boiled or unfiltered coffee (such as that made with a French press, or Turkish-style coffee) contains higher levels of cafestol, a compound that can increase blood levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol.”
“However, studies have also found that cafestol does not decrease bile acid synthesis in humans.”
“Furthermore, cafestol and kahweol have well-studied anticarcinogenic effects.”
“This one does not support the hypothesis that cafestol decreases bile acid synthesis in humans, however it did find a typical effect of increased total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol increased as did the liver enzymes, ALAT and ASAT”
“(Ms. Kapp, of Bean Logik, said a coarser grind is recommended; she said Hourglass coffee has 82% less cafestol, an oil-producing substance in coffee.)”
“Drip coffeemakers, like those we tested in our latest report on these appliances, distribute water to the grounds gently enough so that the cafestol and kahweol pass through only in negligible amounts whether you use a paper or a metal filter.”
“Researchers believe the amount of the cafestol and kahweol oils that ends up in the coffee you drink depends on the brewing method you use and how the water comes in contact with the ground coffee.”
“The Scandinavian boiled, Turkish/Greek/Mediterranean (shown), and French-press brewing methods addressed in these studies produced coffee with relatively high levels of cafestol and kahweol.”
