I spotted this article in The Times (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/three-ways-to-improve-prostate-health) on how coffee can reduce or even stop prostate cancer. Apparently there are two compounds — kahweol acetate and cafestol — that are found in espresso coffee made from Arabica beans (but often not found in filter coffee). These compounds were shown to slow or even stop prostate cancer growth in a pilot study presented at the European Association of Urology conference this year.
This prompted me to research the other health benefits of coffee.
So here goes:
- Coffee makes us strong emotionally
Drinking coffee makes us emotionally stronger. In this way, we become capable of handling emotional breakdowns and can recover from them. So if you are weak emotionally, you must drink coffee on regular basis. It will surely make you capable of resisting the emotional pains you are going through.

It is now scientifically proven that coffee supports us physically. While sipping our daily dose of coffee, it helps muscle development and gives energy to carry out our day to day activities. Therefore, if you want to develop your physique, we will recommend that you drink coffee more often.

Sometimes, when people are caught up in the mid st of many thoughts, we become unaware of the things happening around us. Coffee makes us mentally aware and makes us focus on such activities.

UPDATE - I was contacted by Charles Vallena who completed his own research on "health benefits of coffee," and came up with an extensive list of 85 benefits, (which puts mine to shame!). He used sources from Harvard University, National Library of Medicine, and other reputable publications, so visit his site: https://www.cuppabean.com/coffee-benefits/ and share the coffee passion.
