A 2019 survey by Reuters shows that 64% of Americans drink (at least) a cup of coffee every day. It’s not uncommon for habitual coffee drinkers to consume more than a cup of coffee every day. Elsewhere, it has been estimated that US coffee drinkers consume about 2.7 cups of coffee each day. That is the highest it’s been in 6 years. That figure translates to millions of Americans drinking a staggering 400+ million cups of coffee each day or over 140 BILLION cups of coffee consumed each year! To say that coffee drinking is a national habit is putting it mildly.

One might think that drinking several cups of coffee per day is unhealthy, but you would be surprised. According to scientific studies, drinking 3 (even 4) cups of coffee daily is not only safe, it can also be good for you.
