The debate over whether coffee brings more benefits or harms to health continues in the scientific community, but it does not diminish the world’s love for coffee. On one hand, coffee is rich in antioxidants and has been linked to a reduced risk of several diseases, including Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, and liver disease.

On the other hand, excessive consumption of coffee can lead to health issues such as insomnia, digestive problems, and increased heart rate. Experts recommend limiting daily consumption to no more than 2 cups, reducing post-meal intake to minimize gastrointestinal stimulation, and keeping total daily caffeine intake below 250 milligrams. Additionally, it’s best to avoid drinking coffee after dinner to prevent sleep disturbances.
