Coffee and caffeine has in the past gotten a bad rap as being unhealthy. Thankfully in recent years that has started to reverse, and the real science of its benefits are coming to the surface. Now of course quality is the main factor and high quality coffee will be healthier with lower grade generic coffee not as much so. I know personally the oldest member of our family my great aunt flossy (my grandmothers aunt) who is 95 years old is still sharp and mentally very alert and I realized after going to breakfast with her that she likes her coffee. I asked her about it and she told me shes been drinking it all her life (since her 20's). So i saw first hand the health benefits it has for the brain. Here is a quick list backed by science (controlled studies) of all its amazing benefits.

There you have it. Just remember to brush your teeth after drinking. I personally follow the 4x4 rule which is 4 cups a day no later than 4pm, but rules were meant to be broken so its ok later every now and again.
