If I knew the answer, I wouldn't be asking! Out of 1,000 chemicals, we should be able to recognize some of them.

According to the following article, there are at least 1000 chemicals found in one cup of coffee!

= Chemicals and cream - goodnews - chemical composition of coffee - Brief Article = Is organic coffee a lot safer than regular coffee? Organic coffee may be a natural, bean-based, pesticide-free beverage. But did you know that all coffee is filled with chemicals? Scientists have identified 1,000 different chemicals in a cup of coffee. But how many of the 1,000 chemicals have been tested in animal cancer studies? Only 22--leaving 978 compounds in your morning java about which we know very little. And of those 22 that were tested, were any found to be carcinogens, or cancer-causing compounds? Seventeen of the 22 are, in fact, carcinogens.

Carcinogens are found in many foods--as are offsetting cancer-fighting chemicals--but in small quantities. If we wanted to avoid all carcinogens, we'd have to stop eating altogether. But there are 10 milligrams (mg) of known carcinogens in a single cup of coffee. To put that into perspective, 10 mg is probably more than all the synthetic pesticide residues you could get from eating non-organic food for an entire year. In one cup. Nevertheless, moderate coffee consumption is not considered a risk factor for cancer. And coffee is linked to the following benefits: It boosts endurance by delaying fatigue; it improves long-term memory; it may help prevent kidney stones; it relaxes lung spasms during an Asthma episode; and, as you may have discovered, it stimulates your gastrointestinal tract.

There is no (easy) chemical name for coffee. It is a composition of dozens, if not hundreds of other chemicals. Caffeine has an IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry - the guys who make the naming rules) name, as do many of the other chemcals that make up coffee.
