Coffee: Hangover Cure or Curse?

May 21, 2021

Some of us who enjoy hot brews and adult bevs have long believed that there is a certain symbiosis -- too much of the adulting one night might be cured the next am with our Humblemaker coffee of choice.

So we were both happy and wary when we noticed that the good folks over on the Sprudge coffee aficionado site posited that there might be pros AND cons when they tackled the subject recently.

It all boils down to:

  • Among caffiene's benefits -- increased alertness, for instance -- can help overcome hangover-related fatigue.
  • But ... that alertness boost can also mask alcohol induced dehydration and give a false sense of sobriety.

So, the cure?

Moderation in all the beverages you consume.
