They say that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:

  • less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and dementia
  • have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes

Is coffee your medicine? How many cups of coffee do you drink per day?

Real caffeine addicts go for dark chocolate covering expresso beans. Wash it down with a cup of java and the world turns.

Coffee un-zombifies me after a long night of studying. Cannot function without it!

I just put my pen in my mouth and tried to write with my coffee cup. Is this a sign that I've been studying too hard or that it's time for another cup of coffee?
