  1. Nothing, really.
    The caffeine can cause minor cardiac irregularities, and an occasional PVC if ingested in excess.
    The only big problem was that in years gone by some foreign producers used trichloretheline in the processing of instant coffee, which is an issue. The newer method uses supercritical carbon dioxide.
    For some reason excess coffee drinking can sometimes cause anal irritation.

  2. No, you should drink 3 to 5 times that amount…especially if you are male. And has been noted, the coffee must be black coffee—not with adulterants like milk or cream or sugar or “artificial sweeteners”.
    Extensive longevity studies have shown that men who drink over 5–6 cups of coffee a day have a 35% decrease in prostate cancer and a couple studies I’ve seen also include other prostate issues as well.
    BLACK coffee (how many times will I have to repeat this—BLACK COFFEE) also contains micro-nutrients and trace minerals and several important antioxidants. Caffeine has been shown to be a mode enhancer and is well-known as helping folks maintain mental focus.
    What I’ve just indicated goes for espresso as well as coffee. Just remember, the darker the roast the more the caffeine has been “roasted out”. So with a demitasse of espresso..whole lot of flavor, caffeine level is reduced.
    This issue of sleeping. Quite individualized. Using my experience as a marker…well, I drink coffee literally from the time I get up to the time I go to sleep…probably 1.5 to 2 liters a day. I go to sleep, I wake up the…

  3. You can have 3 cups of coffee daily if that’s what you need to stay awake during the day. Keep in mind, if you use creamers be careful of the added sugars at it will add a little something extra to your hips! 😀

  4. That depends on how it affects you personally. Coffee actually has health benefits – it’s a great source of antioxidants and has been shown to lower blood sugar in people with type2 diabetes or who are pre-diabetic. (Unless you add a ton of sugar perhaps.)
    But, if it:
    Makes you anxious / increases your stress
    Interferes with your sleep
    Gives you heartburn
    Does anything else you don’t like
    Then it’s too much for you. Drop back to one cup or try half-caff. It still lowers blood sugar.
    Personally, I have a cognitive job and thrive on 2–3 cups of strong half-caff every day with no issues. Except probably coffee breath. Sorry, co-workers. But it really helps me focus.
    Yeah I know strong half-caff is an oxymoron.

  5. For most adults, three cups of coffee a day are fine and may even provide some health benefits. Regular coffee drinkers have a lower rate of all-cause mortality (that is, you live longer), for instance.
    Guidelines suggest that adults should consume no more than 400 mg of caffeine a day, and one cup (that’s not a Starbucks Grande and above!) contains about 100 mg of that drug.
    But, of course, you are not “most adults”. If you are on certain medications or have a medical condition sensitive to caffeine (such as uncontrolled high blood pressure), you should discuss your coffee consumption with your doctor.

  6. I don’t know of any long-term issues as I am now in my 60’s and have drunk between 2 and five cups of coffee a day since I was 11 years old. (Growing up as a Navy B.R.A.T.) I do know that coffee helps keep the kidneys flushed as a study was done by the U.S. Surgeon General in the late 60’s early 70’s to see what effect coffee had on the military. According to that study, the U.S. Navy whose members drank the most coffee had the fewest kidney problems. I think the Army was second, then Marines, then Air Force.


  7. I sure hope not, since that’s been my habit for years.
    I don’t see the harm in it, since that’s a moderate amount, and the caffeine wouldn’t be a hinderance for most people.


  8. I think it is OK to drink 3 cups of coffee a day. But, do complement that with drinking sufficient amount of water (about 3 litres daily).

  9. Yes, that is extremely bad for you. Too much caffeine especially at a young age can lead to heart problems. I reckon that by the time you are 30 you will notice your heart is much weaker when you run or do exercises. Please stop drinking caffeine.

  10. Absolutely not..
    Coffee is very good for you and contains lots of health benefits. Try not to add sugar or sweetener and you will be just fine on 2 cups a day, if however you have trouble sleeping then don’t drink before bedtime as caffeine being a stimulant will keep you awake. I have listed a few benefits below.
    can help to burn fat.
    increases energy levels and alertness.
    increases physical performance.
    Contains essential nutrients.
    Can fight depression and make you happier
    may help fight off parkinsons
    May protect against liver disease
    May lower your risk of cancers
    massive source of antioxidants.
    Hope this helps

  11. It depends on what your system is used to. When I was a kid and drank a lot of ice coffees, I could drink six or seven cups of ice coffee a day including one just before going to bed and still sleep easily. Then I weaned myself off coffee while at university as I was always rushing from place to place and didn’t have time to nurse a hot coffee nor wait for a barrista to make an ice coffee for me and I discovered that all it took was one cup of coffee and it have me wired and jittery all day long. So whether something is good or bad depends on how used to coffee your system is.

  12. Yes. It will help keep your kidneys flushed out. And three cups, spaced far enough apart, will give you just enough spark to get through the day. And your stomach will have enough time to handle the acid in each cup.

  13. Coffee has been falsely maligned, and continues to be maligned in some of the answers here.

    New research has shown that coffee can increase longevity, and it has also been linked to weight loss because it stimulates metabolically active brown fat. It’s an excellent source of antioxidants, comparable to green tea.
    Even six cups of coffee a day are within the range of what’s acceptable for health, and the dangers of caffeine have been greatly exaggerated. Unless that coffee contributes to sleeplessness, there’s no reason to worry about it.

  14. I’ve been drinking an average of three to four cups of coffee a day for more than forty-five years. I have my share of health issues, but none of them have anything to do with coffee, unless you include occasional bouts of insomnia.

  16. Hi Cierra
    Caffeine consumption varies from person to person.
    You might be more tolerant than others.
    Test and see if you get any side effects from 3 cups if you do then you know to back down.

  17. How big are your cups that you think 2 cups is too much. There are people who drink cup after cup after cup throughout their waking hours. I would say if your cups are normal 8 oz mugs, and your reaction to caffeine is not extreme – jitters, headaches, diarrhea, then no, 2 cups would be ok.

  18. How Much Coffee Should You Really Be Drinking?
    Recent headlines suggested that 3-5 cups per day is safe. But should you drink that much? Here are 5 things to consider before you pour another cup.
    I love coffee, and I’ve written about it a lot over the past few years, from why it’s actually good for both mental and physical health, to reasons to drink java before a workout. So I wasn’t surprised when, for the first time in history, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee gave coffee a thumbs up.
    But many of the headlines pertaining to the report didn’t tell the whole story, leaving a lot of people wondering how much is really OK. To determine your daily dose, here are five factors to consider.
    Everyone’s different
    The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee looked at whether coffee poses any health risks, a topic they have previously been silent on. They concluded that strong evidence shows moderate coffee consumption (3 to 5 eight-ounce cups per day, or up to 400 milligram/day caffeine) isn’t tied to any long-term dangers for healthy people. Now, the word “healthy” is key (read on for more), and this is a general statement, not a directive. In other words, the committee isn’t saying that everyone should drink 3 to 5 cups a day.
    Even if it may offer some benefits, it’s important to listen to your body. Some people can drink a strong cup of coffee and feel fantastic. Others may drink half a cup and feel jittery and be left with an upset stomach. There’s a lot of individual variation when it comes to how coffee makes you feel. So, don’t take this as a green light to down a pot a day. Consider what feels best for you. (And if the answer is none, there’s no reason to start drinking java.)
    Your current health matters
    The committee considered healthy individuals. If you already have heart disease or other chronic conditions, you may still need to curb your coffee consumption. For example, I sometimes recommend coffee to my healthy athlete clients, but others who suffer from gastrointestinal reflex disease (GERD) or other digestive disorders feel much better when they eliminate it, as do those who have anxiety disorders. And while coffee hasn’t been shown to cause high blood pressure across the board, it may aggravate the condition. Bottom line: if you have any acute or ongoing medical conditions or your blood work values have been out of the normal range, talk to your doctor or personal dietitian/nutritionist about what’s best for you.
    Be mindful of your sleep
    One thing we know for certain is that caffeine interferes with sleep for most people, and catching enough zzz’s is critical for mental and physical well being, as well as for weight control (check out my previous post 5 Healthy Habits That Regulate Your Appetite). A good rule of thumb is to nix all caffeine at least six hours before bed. So if you’re tempted to pour another cup when you’re in an afternoon slump, find other ways to perk up, like going for a quick walk, listening to a five-minute guided meditation, or drinking a cold glass of water.
    Your genetics play a role
    Due to a genetic variation which affects a particular enzyme, some people break down caffeine at a very slow rate. It’s fairly common and, for these people, even a moderate daily coffee intake can increase the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure. Access to this genetic test was extremely limited until recently, but if you’re interested, a University of Toronto-affiliated company called Nutrigenomix now offers it, and you can order it through a registered dietitian.
    Consider what else is in your cup
    While I’ve written about coffee’s potential benefits, I still often recommend limiting it to just one cup in the morning. That’s because many people aren’t able to drink it without doctoring it up with some kind of milk and sweetener, and those extras can add up to surplus calories that feed fat cells. For example, 150 calories (roughly the amount in a skinny vanilla latte) doesn’t sound like much, but downing an extra 150 calories above and beyond what your body needs to support your ideal weight each day can leave you 10 to 15 pounds heavier. Not to mention that extra cups of Joe tend to crowd out water, the ultimate beverage for optimal health. Balance is always the goal.

  19. Technically the medical industry claims that 2 caps of coffee are fine.
    However, if you rely on caffeine to do your daily tasks, you get a headache if you don’t have a coffee and your spouse would divorce the person you would become without it then, if I were you, I would consider decreasing your caffeine intake.
    Everything is good for us in moderation but you won’t get withdrawal syndrome from kale.
    If you have withdrawal syndrome from anything you consume it means you are addicted to it. It’s up to you what you want to do with your addiction.

  20. Depends on what safe means to you. Will it have an effect on your health? Yes. But some people might consider that level of effect as safe—i.e., acceptable—whereas others would not.

  21. No of course not drink as many as you want you’ll know when you have a problem when your body smell will be of pure caffeine 🤪 and hey maybe a coffee tree can grow out of your body

  22. I do know a few people that go through copious amounts of coffee per day. Some say they are fine, some are just lying to themselves. With a 2 – 3 cups, I think you are probably fine (measuring cups as the 8oz equivalent).
    What I would suggest is that you evaluate why you need the coffee and how it affects you.
    Do you need it in the AM to get out of bed? → Can you replace that with tea or more sleep?
    Does it cause you anxiety? → drop by 1 cup and see if it’s getting better
    Does it irritate your stomach/bowels?
    Does it make you lose sleep? → Stop drinking around lunch time
    Normal is the kind of word that means different things to different people. You have to listen to your body and see 🙂
    I am not a doctor and this is solely an opinion.

  23. Nothing wrong with two cups a day. Since coffee contains more caffeine content than Tea, it is being advised to take in lesser quantity. Try to include Green Tea atleast once or twice apart from the two cups of coffee you take.

  24. I am not a doctor so please do not take the following as medical advise. I drink 3 cups of strong filter coffee by 10:00 AM. I am 71 and have been drinking coffee since I remember myself.

  25. Coffee is good for you! A new study suggests that drinking at least two cups of coffee daily could decrease risk of death due to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

  26. The answer to that is somewhat mercurial and depends on when you drink the coffee, if you are still able to consume healthy meals meanwhile, and sleep a full night of restful sleep. There seem to be two kinds of people when it comes to the body’s processing of caffeine as well. Some people it has very little effect on and others it acts as a very powerful stimulant, at least before tolerance has been elevated. Depending on your situation, you might actually be able to drink coffee before bed and still sleep but it will probably not be as restful as sleep without it. It also elevates heart rate. While extreme caffeine intake, like ephedrine, has been shown to cause heart attacks, there is somewhat conflicting data on the long term impacts of low to moderate use. I wouldn’t consider caffeine ultimately a high risk drug, but also not one that is proven as beneficial. It is only seen that way by people who are already users and have developed some degree of dependency. Most people who quit for long enough to completely detox and return their tolerance to normal report just as high energy levels as those who drink it, given that they are otherwise living a healthy lifestyle.

  27. You are a bit young to be drinking that much caffeine, according to societal standards.
    What does your doctor say? Please ask him/her. Because it COULD affect your overall health. If they say it won’t, then, you’re good. Be honest about what size and type of coffee you’re drinking.

  28. Up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That’s roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee. Mainly it depends on the person but 3 cups of coffee isn’t unhealthy for a day.

  29. Drinking 1 -2 cups of black coffee everyday reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases including stroke. Black coffee also reduces the inflammation level in the body. Black coffee is the powerhouse of antioxidants.

    Moderate espresso drinking is sheltered, and three to four cups a day may have some medical advantages, as per a huge audit of studies, in the BMJ.
    It found a lower danger of liver ailment and a few diseases in espresso consumers, and a lower danger of kicking the bucket from stroke – however scientists couldn’t demonstrate espresso was the reason.
    An excessive amount of espresso during pregnancy could be unsafe, the survey affirmed.
    Specialists said individuals ought not begin drinking espresso for well-being reasons.
    The University of Southampton specialists gathered information on the effect of espresso on all parts of the human body, considering in excess of 200 investigations – a large portion of which were observational.
    Espresso consumers may live more
    Malignant growth hazard from espresso minimized
    Is the UK arriving at café immersion point?
    Contrasted and non-espresso consumers, the individuals who drank around three cups of espresso daily seemed to decrease their danger of getting heart issues or biting the dust from them.
    The most grounded advantages of espresso utilization were seen in diminished dangers of liver illness, including malignant growth.
    Be that as it may, Prof Paul Roderick, co-creator of the investigation, from the personnel of medication at University of Southampton, said the audit couldn’t state if espresso admission had the effect.
    “Factors, for example, age, regardless of whether individuals smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an impact,” he said.
    Everything with some restraint, including espresso:
    The discoveries back up other late audits and investigations of espresso drinking in this way, in general, his message on espresso was consoling.
    “There is a parity of dangers throughout everyday life, and the advantages of moderate utilization of espresso appear to exceed the dangers,” he said.
    The NHS suggests pregnant ladies have close to 200 mg of caffeine daily – two cups of moment espresso – in light of the fact that a lot of can expand the danger of unnatural birth cycle.
    This survey recommends ladies in danger of cracks should likewise decrease espresso.
    For different grown-ups, moderate caffeine consumption compares to 400 mg or less every day – or three to four cups of espresso – yet that isn’t the main beverage (or food) to endure at the top of the priority list.
    What amount of caffeine in my beverage?

  44. Standard disclaimer: I am not a doctor so anything stated here is just an opinion and should not be considered medical advice.
    The LD 50 of caffeine is some 150–200mg per kilo of body weight. Too much caffeine can cause people to feel jittery/shaky, get headaches or more serious symptoms.
    Personally I have a high tolerance for caffeine, my father was an eccentric and had me drinking coffee from roughly the age of 5. I can over the course of an evening drink an entire pot of coffee and still go to sleep very easily, others might feel like the can stay awake for 2 days after consuming so much coffee.
    Anecdotal information about coffee would suggest it is fairly harmless, some research even suggests health benefits to coffee. However that being said, there are others that are highly sensitive to caffeine, or have underlying health conditions.
    If you have a heart condition and are affected by a rapid heart rate, you should probably avoid anything that could potentially raise your heart rate.
    While I started drinking coffee at an early age, I do not give my young daughter coffee. We still do not fully understand the affects of certain chemicals on children and should be cautious when making these decisions.
    Just my unqualified opinion, I believe just about anything consumed in moderation can’t be too harmful. Would I consider coffee a health food product? The suprising answer is, yes (to a degree). Some people who go to the gym swear to adding caffeine into their workout preparation. I will link a source to any studies I find about this later.
    Edit: Here is one article on the subject-> Drinking Coffee Improved Cyclists’ Speed, It May Help Your Workout Too

  45. It works for me. But… your mileage may vary.
    I think there is a genetic predisposition to being able to process caffeine.
    I know someone who claims she and her husband have a cup of coffee just before going to bed at night, with no problems sleeping. I cannot do that, if I have a coffee too late in the afternoon, I notice that I have trouble getting to sleep that night.
    So, as far as two cups, I doubt that it would cause much trouble for you, but you need to know yourself well enough to be able to assess this.

  46. Coffee is a very prized commodity in the market. This is a very famous drink anywhere in the world. Because of its popularity and also the frequency of it being consumed, there has been a lot of study conducted to find out whether this is beneficial or not to the body. The subject of coffee health benefits and risks has been greatly discussed worldwide. Here are some of the things many found out during their research.
    Coffee indeed has a lot of benefits. It reduces the development of certain diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and gout. However, risks are also involved with regards to coffee consumption. Here are some examples.
    1. Consumption of coffee could lead to ulcers and gastritis. Experts advise that those already afflicted with these types of ailments stop or reduce the amount of coffee they consume to a minimum.
    2. Coffee jitters are something most people associate with drinking coffee. This is what one acquires when they have too much of their share of coffee. It can also cause unexplained anxiety and irritability. It could also be the cause of not being able to sleep at night or insomnia.
    3. Coffee has been found out to stain the teeth. If you don’t want your pearly whites to be damaged, stay away from too much coffee.
    You can read more in my space post,

  47. My doctor told me that 4 per day is the maximum one should drink to avoid any health risks, such as heart palpitations and high anxiety. So three is okay, at least according to my doctor.

  48. Two cups a day are normal. I thought you were asking about drinking up to 6 -10 cups.. 😆
    It wont affect you, just your body will adapt to daily coffein intake and when you wont feel the effects of coffee anymore you should stop drinking it for at least a week or two and then start again. Please dont add up to 6 cups a day. Drinking coffee this much daily, may affect your nervous system and your blood pressure. I dont know if you are completely healthy or if you have some kind of condition. But drinking coffee with high blood pressure is definitely forbidden!

  49. If you rely on caffeine to wake you up and keep you going, you aren’t alone. Millions of people rely on caffeine every day to stay alert and improve concentration.
    How much is too much?
    Up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That’s roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two “energy shot” drinks. Keep in mind that the actual caffeine content in beverages varies widely, especially among energy drinks.
    Caffeine in powder or liquid form can provide toxic levels of caffeine, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cautioned. Just one teaspoon of powdered caffeine is equivalent to about 28 cups of coffee. Such high levels of caffeine can cause serious health problems and possibly death.
    Although caffeine use may be safe for adults, it’s not a good idea for children. Adolescents and young adults need to be cautioned about excessive caffeine intake and mixing caffeine with alcohol and other drugs.
    Women who are pregnant or who are trying to become pregnant and those who are breast-feeding should talk with their doctors about limiting caffeine use to less than 200 mg daily.
    Even among adults, heavy caffeine use can cause unpleasant side effects. And caffeine may not be a good choice for people who are highly sensitive to its effects or who take certain medications.
    Read on to see if you may need to curb your caffeine routine.
    You drink more than 4 cups of coffee a day
    You may want to cut back if you’re drinking more than 4 cups of caffeinated coffee a day (or the equivalent) and you have side effects such as:
    Frequent urination or inability to control urination
    Fast heartbeat
    Muscle tremors
    Even a little makes you jittery
    Some people are more sensitive to caffeine than are others. If you’re susceptible to the effects of caffeine, even small amounts may prompt unwanted effects, such as restlessness and sleep problems.
    How you react to caffeine may be determined in part by how much caffeine you’re used to drinking. People who don’t regularly drink caffeine tend to be more sensitive to its effects.
    You’re not getting enough sleep
    Caffeine, even in the afternoon, can interfere with your sleep. Even small amounts of sleep loss can add up and disturb your daytime alertness and performance.
    Using caffeine to mask sleep deprivation can create an unwelcome cycle. For example, you may drink caffeinated beverages because you have trouble staying awake during the day. But the caffeine keeps you from falling asleep at night, shortening the length of time you sleep.
    You’re taking medications or supplements
    Some medications and herbal supplements may interact with caffeine. Examples include:
    Ephedrine. Mixing caffeine with this medication — which is used in decongestants — might increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke or seizure.
    Theophylline. This medication, used to open up bronchial airways, tends to have some caffeine-like effects. So taking it with caffeine might increase the adverse effects of caffeine, such as nausea and heart palpitations.
    Echinacea. This herbal supplement, which is sometimes used to prevent colds or other infections, may increase the concentration of caffeine in your blood and may increase caffeine’s unpleasant effects.
    Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about whether caffeine might affect your medications.
    Curbing your caffeine habit
    Whether it’s for one of the reasons above or because you want to trim your spending on coffee drinks, cutting back on caffeine can be challenging. An abrupt decrease in caffeine may cause withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, irritability and difficulty focusing on tasks. Fortunately, these symptoms are usually mild and get better after a few days.
    To change your caffeine habit, try these tips:
    Keep tabs. Start paying attention to how much caffeine you’re getting from foods and beverages, including energy drinks. Read labels carefully. But remember that your estimate may be a little low because some foods or drinks that contain caffeine don’t list it.
    Cut back gradually. For example, drink one fewer can of soda or drink a smaller cup of coffee each day. Or avoid drinking caffeinated beverages late in the day. This will help your body get used to the lower levels of caffeine and lessen potential withdrawal effects.
    Go decaf. Most decaffeinated beverages look and taste much the same as their caffeinated counterparts.
    Shorten the brew time or go herbal. When making tea, brew it for less time. This cuts down on its caffeine content. Or choose herbal teas that don’t have caffeine.
    Check the bottle. Some over-the-counter pain relievers contain caffeine. Look for caffeine-free pain relievers instead.
    The bottom line
    If you’re like most adults, caffeine is a part of your daily routine. Usually, it won’t pose a health problem. But be mindful of caffeine’s possible side effects and be ready to cut back if necessary.

  50. Hi,
    According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, it’s safe for most women to drink three to five cups of coffee a day with a maximum intake of 400 milligrams of caffeine. You can still get some of the potential health benefits by drinking one cup of coffee a day, or even by drinking decaffeinated coffee.”

  51. I can’t say anything about that, because I typically drink a full pot of coffee every day, I have been doing that since I was 16 years old. My first cup of coffee I didn’t like at all, but everyone was drinking coffee so I kept trying it, now I absolutely love crafted coffee. But I don’t feel like I over do it.

  52. I’m not an health expert but I’ve read a lot of research showing that 3 cups of coffee has a lot of health benefits so that what I personally tend to drink per day.

  53. Three cups of instant or milk coffee will give you a feeling of stomach upset. It is better to say how many grams of beans do you use than three cups. But sometimes I still drink samples of about ten cups.

  54. Depends on the cup size and your health, but 3 cups of coffee are an okay amount for a standard individual.Don’t try to increase day by day as it can affect your health. Caffiene can be like an addiction too.

  55. This is coming from a huge lover of the Magic Bean Juice, so i’m in no way dissing coffee. No it isn’t healthy. I had gotten to the point at one time that I was drinking multiple shots of espresso three plus times a day, so INSANE caffeine levels.
    It wasn’t a good thing for my general wellbeing. Oddly it didn’t interfere with my sleep, but the problem was I was constantly tired unless I was hyped up on caffeine. Caffeine content isn’t the big problem, it’s constant consumption. Constant consumption throws off the balance of your neurotransmitters. Caffeine blocks adenosine, by binding to the same receptors. That is what “gives you energy” but that energy isn’t “real”. Making that process constant eventually starts affecting your natural balance in that regard, so you now require more caffeine to counter your imbalanced adenosine production.
    We all know caffeine in excess has downsides like irregular heartbeat and others, and can be dangerous, so developing a dependency on its effects is bad. You will ramp up your consumption over time and that goes bad at some point. Take it from someone who made that mistake, you want to consume caffeine as few times a day as possible. Zero is good if you have that kind of motivation, but i love my coffee too much, so i usually just have my morning cup now, sometimes a second in the afternoon, but if so i put a lower concentration of grounds in my espresso machine.

  56. Yes, perfectly all right. But you’re better off drinking 3–5 cups of coffee a day
    Oh the evil coffee, that seductively delicious drink that wreaks havoc on your life. That makes you live longer… um… that helps keep you alert.. um… oh yes that raises your blood pressure and causes heart problems 9what’s that? It doesn’t? Damn, I thought I had one there…)
    The evidence shows those who drink coffee live significantly longer than those who don’t. That despite the caffeine, there is no increase in heart disease associated with drinking coffee.
    I’m fed up with pasting the same link over and over again to questinos like this. Just go to google and search for coffee makes yuou live longer. Just correct the typos before you search. Thank you.

  57. Drinking two or more cups of coffee a day is fine, it’s what you put in the coffee, like sugar and flavorings, is what may make it unhealthy.

  58. Everyone is different, and each person’s needs are different. There have been times when I could drink my morning coffee and have several espressos throughout my demanding work day. That was the equivalent of 5–6 cups a day. With demands having changed, I’m content with 1 or 2 cups a day. I have no idea where people got the idea that coffee is unhealthy. Drink what you enjoy. If you don’t enjoy 3 cups of coffee in a day then don’t do that.

  59. Caffeine is always present in coffee, caffeinated sodas, teas and chcoclate. The recommended daily caffeine dose for men is 300mg-400mg and for women is 200mg-300mg. Black coffee per serving typically has a range of 75mg-170mg of caffeine so yeah, two cups of black coffee daily is a healthy lifestyle. Caffeine also has some nootropic effecsts which protects the brain from degenerating. Caffeine therefore reduces the risk of getting Parkinson’s disease or any neurodegenrative diseases.

  60. Yes! For most people, two cups of coffee is not enough caffeine to have a negative health effect. Coffee is also full of antioxidants, which can be beneficial to one’s health. Be careful that you aren’t adding copious amounts of sugar, and there is no reason why two cups could be harmful.

  61. Three cups of coffee a day can prevent gallstones. For caffeine-containing coffee, it can stimulate the contraction of the gallbladder and reduce the cholesterol in the bile that is easy to form gallstones. The latest Harvard University researchers found that men who drink two to three cups of coffee a day have less than 40% chance of getting gallstones .

  62. Past studies have shown that drinking 3 cups of coffee or more each day can be healthy for the average person. Of course, this would be straight black coffee by leaving out the sugar, cream, or any other additives to each drink. Oh, don’t forget also to leave out the donuts/pastries that often go with coffee.

  63. Yes, it can be bad. The amount of caffeine people can tolerate without ill effects varies a great deal from person to person. But I had to quit drinking coffee because I realized it was making me bad-tempered. I suspect that was what was wrong with my dad all those years when he yelled at his family. He usually only drank one cup a day. I can get agitated and lose it after just a few sips. This effect used to be well known because of TV ads for the first decaf, known as Sanka. It depicted a man yelling at his wife and then being nice after he switched to Sanka. For me, even decaf has too much caf.

  64. Moderate coffee drinking is safe, and three to four cups a day may have some health benefits, according to a large review of studies, in the BMJ. It found a lower risk of liver disease and some cancers in coffee drinkers, and a lower risk of dying from stroke – but researchers could not prove it.

  65. John Kapecki lays it out pretty well – there is no universal answer. For example, I drink about 600 mg of caffeine per work day (probably 2 cups on weekends) – mostly in black coffee, with 1 coke zero at lunch. I don’t use cream or sugar, which cuts back on useless calories. I’m middle aged with good blood chemistry, trim, active, heart rate and blood pressure are well within guidelines, don’t have any GI issue, and have no sleeping issues per my fitbit (except the alarm clock goes off way too early). I’ve been at this rate for over two decades with no adverse effects. I’m good.
    I know others who have a history of hypertension, and start turning visibly red and get agitated if they have two cups of coffee. I wouldn’t want to see them on 3.
    There are a lot of good things in coffee and tea, including polyphenols and antioxidants. There is also a fair amount of caffeine, which can present problems for some. If you feel yourself getting jittery, an upset stomach, or restless sleep, evaluate how much caffeine you are consuming, and cut back.

  66. Two (8) ounce cups of coffee are just fine. Please note that this is for 8 ounce, as in one (1) measuring cup of coffee. If you are like most, you could be using a 16–24 ounce mug. Even that is not unhealthy, you may be a little wired from the caffeine, especially if you make or purchase you coffee strong.

  67. No it’s not good for health because it’s contain caffeine which take in excess amount toxic for health.
    You can take green tea.

  68. What is normal? Who determines what’s normal on coffee drinking? Enjoy your coffee but if you start acting stupid because of high from coffee, then that’s not normal… get me?

  69. Moderate coffee drinking is safe, and three to four days may have some health benefits its found a lower risk of liver disease and some cancers in coffee drinkers and lower risk for dying from stroke but some researchers couldn’t prove coffee was the cause

  70. It’s pretty common, if nothing else. At one point, when I was working and had access to the office coffee machine, I used to drink about 20 cups a day. They were small cups, only 6 oz, but still, that was a lot of coffee!
    When I left that job I quit drinking so much of it, had terrible headaches for a few days and then never drank so much of it again.
    These days, I usually have one big mug of it, it holds about 12 oz, I think and sometimes two.

  71. NO,two cups a day is not harmful.I have been taking 2 cups of coffe(fine ground,not black) during the times am busy.Coffee contains anti-oxidants that are good for health,and caffeine which acts as a stimulant.
    Only negative effects are that too much coffee,specially during late hours at night can adversely affect our sleep as the caffeine takes approx 5-6 hours to go out of the system.
    Other things which I have heard is that too much caffeine has effects in blood pressure,so people with serious BP problems may abstain from having too much strong black coffee.The amount of sugar we add to a cup of coffee is also a minor factor that can be considered.

  72. You are fine.

    Two cups isn’t nearly enough to cause any trouble. Not to mention the normal variation in body mass and physiology that would play into that.

  73. I think it depends on the person me personally I can only have one coffee in the morning or I will be awake forever but I know people that have 3 cups a day and are just fine the best way you can tell us how was your blood pressure if it’s affecting your blood pressure than now you need to cut down

  74. Never ask for medical advice except from professionals. Certainly not here.
    For most people, two cups shouldn’t be a problem, but you need to ask a doctor if you have concerns. See #1 above.

  75. This needs to be asked of your own healthcare practitioner with the relevant dose because brewed and instant isn’t equal. Some people have huge cups that actually contain more like half a pot and they vary too, and if you are taking and the other caffeinated drinks and foods you are ingesting. (Yes de-caf contains caffeine).
    You also need to be aware that it contains oxalate which i…

  76. Well, I’m over age 60, and I doubt I’ve skipped more than a day without at least that much since I was 20. Best guess is I drink about a litre a day of black coffee. 25 pounds worth anyway.
    It turns out coffee is loaded with anti-oxidants and is helpful against fatty liver. However you need to drink it black for that last effect. No cream! No sugar.
    As soon as someone invokes the word “healthy” in a conversation, I assume neuroses and fear loom on the horizon. I suggest you relax, and enjoy food, friends and life and stop worrying. Somewhere between here and there you are going to die, and trying to fix the method, and timing is a mug’s game.
    Over to you for your risk tolerance.

  77. The allowable dose of caffeine for an adult is about 300 mg. Depending on the type of coffee, this amounts to 2-3 cups per day.
    It depends on what kind of cups we are talking about. 100 ml and 300 ml are very different things. In studies, the classic 100 ml cups are used. By the way, the portions also depend on the coffee itself. For example, for espresso, it is even smaller – only 30 ml.
    The use of coffee in moderate amounts does not bring harm, but, on the contrary, has benefits for health and well-being. But there are situations where this drink can be detrimental: serious diseases of the cardiovascular system; problems of the digestive tract; diseases of the nervous system.
    Excessive consumption of coffee can provoke brittle bones and joint problems, headaches, heart palpitations and insomnia.
    In other cases, coffee can be even useful, because its use is invigorating, helps to restore efficiency and improve your mood.

  78. Coffee and Caffeine — How Much Should You Drink?
    First of all, how much caffeine is in a cup of coffee ?
    A small home-brewed cup of coffee could provide 50 mg, while a 16-ounce (475-ml) Starbucks grande packs over 300 mg.
    As a general rule, you can assume that an average 8-ounce (240-ml) cup of coffee offers around 100 mg of caffeine.
    Several sources suggest that 400 mg of caffeine per day — the equivalent of 4 cups (945 ml) of coffee — is safe for most healthy adults.
    However, many people drink much more than that without any issues.
    So, a daily intake of 3 cups of coffee is more or less a normal habit for most people.

  79. From a medical book. 800mg of caffeine or less a day an you should be fine I would still suggest taking days without caffeine every now and then. It’s still known as a diuretic.

  80. It depends. If you mean by having one cup in the morning, one in the evening and then one in the night, I don’t see any real issue with that since you wouldn’t be ingesting all of that caffeine at the same time. You would be allowing your body to ingest the caffeine before intaking more. As long as you wait a couple of hours in between drinking coffee and you drink tons of water in between, I don’t see an issue with it.

  81. Short answer, yes. But with the reframe one is only drinking about 1 cup at a time, and taken earlier in the day. Caffein has approximately 5 hour half lie (meaning eery 5 hours half of how much was there remains). So, to keep from interfering with sleep, probably best avoid drinking coffee after 2- 3 in the afternoon if your bedtime is around 10 – 11 at night. Let’s also say for the sake of this question one is in relatively good health; the largest concerns being, high blood pressure (to start with), lactose intolerance (if you use cream) and diabetes (if you use sugar). There are quite a few studies which show some correlation between regular and moderate coffee drinking and a lower rate of mental decline in the elderly (alzheimers and parkinsons’). Those are only suggestive and firm evidence is not currently available. In April of 2017 there is an article published in archives of medical science which supports this idea. A scholarly search on google will bring up numerous primary research articles. Moderate coffee consumption might even be a good thing. But again, the hard evidence isn’t in.

  82. Moderate coffee drinking is healthy, and according to a broad study of studies in the BMJ, three to four cups a day can have some health benefits. It showed a lower incidence of liver disease and certain cancers in coffee drinkers, and a lower risk of stroke dying-but researchers were unable to confirm the cause was coffee.

  83. There’s a lot of research on this but no single conclusion. There are contradictory findings, so I think as always that “healthy” depends on the individual.
    I personally have 2–3 large mugs of coffee daily. If it’s bad for me, I probably don’t want to know.

  84. I sometimes drink a whole pot in one sitting but I wouldn’t recommend doing it if you’re not use to it.
    Health experts and caffeine studies say 400mg of caffeine is considered safe per day which is about 4 cups.
    I may drink a little more myself… 😛 but it all really comes down to tolerance.
    If you like sleeping or have trouble sleeping, be sure to stop drinking caffeinated beverages at least 6 hours before bedtime and drink some water to help flush the caffeine out of your system.
