Are you a coffee lover? The National Coffee Association says 83 percent of Americans have had a cup of coffee in the past year.
While there are some health concerns about over-consumption of caffeine, “for most people the health benefits [of consuming coffee] outweigh the risks,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
