‘The reason for these higher amounts is due to the fact that hermetically-sealed capsules prevent furan, which is highly volatile, from being released, as the coffee manufacturers used to brew this coffee use warm water at higher pressures, which leads to the substance being extracted into the drink’, says Javier Santos. The longer that coffee is subjected to the air in cups or jugs, meanwhile, the even more the furan evaporates. In fact, the team has estimated the amount of furan ingested due to coffee intake in Barcelona, obtaining values of 0. In order for furan ingestion to surpass the maximum acceptable ideals, a person would have to drink at least 20 cups of capsule espresso or 30 espressos each day , or 200 quick coffees. These estimates were made on the basis of 40 ml cups and the average body weight for coffee drinkers of around 70 Kg.She informed KOVR she was sorry. ‘We thought she would die because she was really feeling bad.
