1. What is coffee?

Now, let’s talk about coffee scientifically. It actually comes from a coffee plant. Yes, you read it right. It’s a shrub or tree that bears fruit along its branches. Inside each fruit contains one or two seeds, which we better know as coffee beans.
2. How much caffeine is in a cup of coffee?
Caffeine content may differ depending on the different types of coffee, size, and strength. For example, normal size of a cup of coffee or around 8oz will most likely contain an average of 94.8mg of caffeine. An espresso could have 63mg whilst a latte could reach up to 77mg of caffeine.
3. Is coffee bad for you?
Coffee is the most famous beverage in the world because of its benefits to the human body. These positive health effects include reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, improving resting metabolic rate or the total number of calories burned when your body is completely at rest. It can even lower the risk of certain types of cancer and ignites long-term memory.
On the other hand, there are also negative effects of coffee when consumed in an overwhelming amount due to caffeine intake. These effects are considerably small but it’s something we should also be cautious of. Too much coffee can cause sleep disruptions, anxiety, and headache. So, remember to always keep things in moderation.
