Types of Coffee and Healthy Strategies

On its own, with a pastry or piece of cake on the side, hot or cold⁠—coffee is a staple drink around the world. Known for its caffeine benefits, it’s a common morning wake-up call. Others enjoy the taste and smell of the brew while relaxing in the afternoon. Brazil is one of the largest producers of coffee, although many other countries, such as Colombia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Ethiopia export it as well. These days, Arabica and Robusta are two of the most common types of coffee consumed around the world.

So, how can you incorporate such a versatile drink into your daily routine in a healthy way? One main tip can be to avoid sugary syrups and adding high-fat milk and creamer to your coffee, as these will increase its overall calorie content. Opting for skim milk and minimal sugar will ensure a lower calorie total. Another strategy can be to aim for a safe recommended limit. Many professionals recommend no more than 400 milligrams of coffee per day, or the equivalent of 4 or 5 cups of coffee. Exceeding this limit is not beneficial for the body and, depending on what you put in it, can really add up calorie-wise. What are some ways you plan to enjoy some coffee this week?
