Blog: Blame it on the coffee
Catherine Sleep | 20 July 2004
New research indicates that your early morning cup of coffee could be leaving you tongue-tied. Now, that’s a turn-up for the books.
I’m an enthusiastic drinker of a strong cup of coffee with breakfast to crank up the system and get work off to a good start each day. Not that it’s all about a simple caffeine boost; I’m fussy about the flavour too and like trying new blends. But my routine is certainly also partly about boosting my alertness.
However, research indicates that caffeine can impede the short-term recall of words, meaning it might not be the best tool to gear you up for an important breakfast meeting or business call. Thank goodness the first hour of my working day generally involves more reading than speaking (although it does perhaps explain the morning witterings of some of my colleagues… kidding, guys, kidding!).
