I admit to drinking coffee daily. I love coffee. I did have to cut back, though. I used to drink an entire pot of coffee daily. At first, I cut back one cup per day for a week at a time. Then, I drank half a pot of coffee daily for years. Recently, I’ve cut back to 2 large cups (technically, 4 cups) per day. Sometimes, I add the third (6th). Honestly, I’m not sure I could cut back any more than that. How about y’all?

There Is A Limit When It Comes To Coffee
If you need a pot of Joe to get through the day, you might want to dial it back. Turns out, there is a limit when it comes to coffee consumption.
Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that six or more cups of Java ups the risk of a heart ailment by up to 22 percent.
The study marks the first time scientists have attached a cup number limit that notes when damage could start setting in. “Coffee is the most commonly consumed stimulant in the world – it wakes us up, boosts our energy and helps us focus – but people are always asking ‘How much caffeine is too much?’,” asks Dr. Elina Hypponen of the Australian Centre for Precision Health.
