coffee lover

I must admit that I struggle to get through the day without my regular cup of coffee. I need that cup of joy to help wake me up in the morning, especially with a lengthy commute ahead of me.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who turns into an angry little gremlin without my caffeine fix, whether it’s a flat white from my favourite local cafe or a mug of instant coffee at 6 am.

I’m a true coffee addict and pride myself on being just like Lorelai Gilmore. “I need coffee in an IV” has become my new motto since I started working full time.

There are times when I do worry about my daily coffee consumption, but one study has certainly reassured me.

Researchers in Germany have discovered that drinking four cups of coffee a day is actually good for your heart.

The team shared that caffeine helps protect blood vessels.

The study, which was published in PLOS Biology, stated that caffeine boosts the production of the p27 protein that protects and regenerates heart cells.

"Our results indicate a new mode of action for caffeine, one that promotes protection and repair of heart muscle through the action of mitochondrial p27,” said study author, Professor Judith Haendeler.

"These results should lead to better strategies for protecting heart muscle from damage,” he added.

There are numerous other benefits when it comes to drinking a Cup of Joe such as boosting cognitive function and protecting against type 2 diabetes.

Experts recommend drinking two to three cups of coffee each day, or if you’re like me then feel free to channel your inner Lorelai Gilmore and drink all the coffee!


Let's face it, there's a few of us in this world that love nothing more than a good cup of coffee.

Whether at home, in work or at lunch, coffee is something that will always be by your side; so it's fair to say it's your true love (until Prince Charming comes along, that is).

So, here are the the 12 signs that coffee is your boyfriend:

1. You smell coffee the minute you wake up in the morning.

2. You need coffee to wake up, BUT you need to wake up to get coffee. #TheStruggleIsReal

3. Pro-caffeinating – yep, it's a thing.

4. You think people that drink tea are wimps.

5. You impose silence in your house until you've had your first cup of the day.

6. You know all the hip cafés in town and in your local area.

7. Your daily excuse for running late: "Sorry, the line in Starbucks was so long!"

8. You proudly share any news story claiming coffee is good for you; and ignore any that say otherwise.

9. Heart palpitations and shaking hands are just part of your life now.

10. You think drinking decaf is like wine without alcohol.

11. Your purse is over-flowing with coffee shop loyalty cards.

12. And when you get a free coffee from said loyalty cards, you order the biggest and most extravagant coffee of them all. And it makes you so happy.
