  4. The common pro’s of drinking coffee are the following: Pleasant tasting, mild stimulation of the central nervous system and possibly some benefit to one’s overall health if drunk daily but in moderation.
    The usual con’s of drinking coffee are essentially its pro’s but taken to extremes. These include: overstimulation of the CNS which can lead to difficulty falling asleep, increased urinary frequency and potentially unwanted cardiac stimulation. In men with prostatic hypertrophy, the caffeine present in coffee can cause increased difficulty with urination and, in severe cases, prostatic bleeding.
    I love my morning cup of coffee, but because of some of the reasons above, I cannot allow myself to drink more than two cups daily and none after lunchtime. I also dread the day I may have to give up coffee altogether. It has been one of my small pleasures for decades.

  5. Pros : great taste and for a lot of people part of the waking up process.
    Cons: like with everything..If you consume too much it might harm you.
    But in general if you consume 2–3 cups of good coffee a day it wont harm you..
