    Nothing like a good cup of coffee or expresso with a bit a cocoa in it

      Thanks to all who have given me so many responses to my query. And for those who were calling this thread a spam, it is just a link with a beautiful discussion over here. What's the big deal?

      Anyways, coffee has been proved a very beneficial beverage for health. So is the tea. I recommend people to drink both. Not just the coffee or not just the tea. But take advantage of both the beverages. That is what I'm doing these days. I drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning till noon and one cup of green tea in the evening after returning from gym.

        We meant no harm. Pretty generally, we get weekly (or daily) drive by posts from profiles registered in less commonly encountered countries where the content usually links to a product or blog that supports it. We got confused is all.

          I don't get withdrawals from coffee. I drink 1-2 a day. But have had phases where I drink 4 or so. I love it and you can pry it from my cold dead fingers.

            I love my coffee in the morning and afternoon. 2 cups a day for me :-) espresso only (at home for me, Starbucks is over rated and spendy!) drip coffee is like drinking acid

              If you need it or rely on it for energy then it isn't good for you. It has way more negatives than positives.

                I love coffee... must be good coffee.
                And I don't need to have one everyday.

                Best coffee to make at home is Bulletproof Coffee

                Coffee becomes not beneficial when you start adding in sugar and crap milk. Oh and using crap coffee...

                  This is nonsense in my opinion. Cite studies that support your claims, this is the research section after all.

                    What, that it can have negatives? If you feel you need caffeine as a stimulant or have withdrawals then you're drinking too much.

                    If you tolerate it fine, if it doesn't effect sleep quality or you don't have health issues that it may exacerbate I don't see a problem consuming it in moderation. But if you're using it as a crutch just to function properly then you have problems with caffeine.

                      This isn't new but truly cold brewed coffee is so great tasting (if done properly, and not the Japanese method) and you can serve it hot cold with milk whatever.
                      It has less caffein, and way less acid so people that have reflux have a far easier time with it.
                      I drink it because its so smooth. I have 1-2 cups per day.

                        I'm wondering if the coffee at my closest coffee shop (where I go at least once a week with the S.O.) is actually worth drinking, or if it's more harm than good.

                          It's probably beneficial the same way just about everything else is; Good for some people, Bad for some people, others have no response to it.

                          I drink decaf. because I like the flavour of coffee but caffeinated anything puts me dead to sleep.

                            What is "truly cold brewed coffee"? What is the "Japanese method"? How do you know it has less caffeine? Less caffeine than what?

                              The whole black/white thing is silly. Sure, if you (generic you, not anyone in particular) drink 15 cups a day, coffee is going to make you feel bad, and cutting back is going to make you feel bad. But a cup in the morning and another at maybe 3pm? Hardly going to kill you unless you have a medical condition that's exacerbated by caffeine.

                              Everything we do on a regular basis has become an "addiction." I'm addicted to air. I once tried to go more than 90 seconds without it, and it was a total fail. I went to meetings and appealed to a higher power, but to no avail. There are days when I don't drink any coffee, especially recently.

                                I'm not disagreeing with you on the 'crap coffee' part, but do you have any way of substantiating the rest of your claim?
