1. Great thing come to those who wait.

Your body naturally produces a hormone called cortisol that helps you feel alert and awake. That is released according to your circadian rhythm, dictated by the time of the day. So, if you have a habit of drinking coffee when you first wake up, you may want to wait a bit longer so that your caffeine isn’t wasted during a time when cortisol is at its highest.

2. Coffee doesn’t really dehydrate.

Caffeine in coffee was thought to be a significant diuretic, but it turn out that just isn’t true. Unless you are consuming coffee in large quantities (more than 500 to 600 mg a day, or 3+ coffees) there aren’t any dehydrating effects.  As long as you enjoy your coffee in moderation, there’s not much to worry about.

3. Coffee was discovered by goats

According to legend, Ethiopian shepherds first realized the profound caffeinating effects of coffee when they noticed their goats started “dancing” after eating coffee berries.

4. Coffee helps you live longer!

Coffee contains lots of antioxidants (it’s the biggest source of antioxidants in an average Western diet!) that help the body fight chemicals called “free radicals.” As a result, coffee drinkers are at a lower risk of diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Type II Diabetes, and Heart Disease.

5. Coffee contains important nutrients you need to survive.

A single cup of coffee contains 11% of the daily recommended amount of Riboflavin (vitamin B2), 6% of Pantothenic Acid (vitamin B5), 3% of Manganese and Potassium, and 2% of Niacin and Magnesium.

6. Drinking Coffee can help you loose weight.

Studies have shown that drinking caffeine can increase your metabolism 3 to 11%. It’s one of the few chemicals that can actually help with fat burning, so might as well drink up!

7. Caffeine is actually crystals.

The buzz you feel after drinking coffee is actually from ingesting tiny 0.0016-inch crystals of caffeine. So small, yet so energizing!

8. Coffee can help prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Studies have shown that coffee drinkers are up to 65% less likely to get Alzheimer’s Disease, which is a leading cause of dementia.

9. The world’s most expensive coffee is made by elephants.

The most expensive coffee in the world is made from elephant dung, and it’s called Black Ivory coffee. It costs $50 per cup. Luwak, aka civet, coffee is made by feeding coffee beans to mongoose and then using its feces. It costs $160 per pound.

10. Coffee is good for your liver.

11. King Charles wasn’t a fan of Starbucks.

Okay, kind of. In 1675 King Charles II banned coffee shops because he thought that that’s where people were meeting to conspire against him. Keep your eyes peeled next time you pick up your latte.

12. Caffeine improves your performance when working out.

Caffeine increases your levels of adrenaline, and releases fatty acids from fat tissues, leading to a better physical performance by those who consume caffeine before working out. Perfecting the cappuccino cup hold while running remains a tricky technique.
