Ever wonder what the best time is to drink your coffee? You probably know it is not a good idea to drink part of your daily dose of caffeine in the afternoon. Especially for those who have problems sleeping. But, do you ever drink your coffee and feel like it just didn’t work?
Confession: I don't drink coffee. I know next to nothing about what makes a good cup of brown flavored water other than it involving sniper precision measurements, calculus-level math, tools that are fit for a serial killer, forearms that would make Popeye jealous and a full beard. What I DO know is that more is…
Here's something super bitter for you coffee fiends: Death Wish Coffee. It's the world's strongest coffee because it has 200% more caffeine than your normal cup of joe.

Millions of us start the morning with a coffee and think nothing of it. But new medical research suggests that it could be helping you live longer—if you drink enough of it.
Not liking coffee is pretty much unpatriotic behavior in this country. But hey, can you blame people for not liking the bitter and dehydrating taste? If anti-coffee people (and/or Brits) need their caffeine fix, they turn to tea.
This is the study that many of us have been waiting for: exercise combined with caffeine will greatly reduce your risk of skin cancer caused by sun exposure.
There's no shortage of scientific research pointing to exercise being good for you, but if you're just trying to lose weight you probably want all the help you can get. Now, research suggests that caffeine activates the same fat-busting genes as an hour's exercise. Somebody, pass the espresso.
