Consumption of 3-4 cups per day has a neutral effect on health, or can be mildly beneficial.

The study was conducted to list the potential health benefits and risks of coffee consumption on total mortality, cardiovascular disease, cancer, metabolic health, neurological disorders, gastrointestinal conditions and other miscellaneous health outcomes.

The findings of the study showed that moderate coffee drinking outweighed the risks in adult consumers for the majority of major health outcomes considered.

The findings were published in the journal Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety.
