  1. Reblogged this on Life of Sheebs and commented:
    Well, no wonder Seattle is notorious for coffee and what not! It’s nice to know that it actually helps improve your day. There are always people with coffee no matter where you turn in Seattle. I’ve found it kind of interesting where people leave empty coffee cups—I also find it interesting because people treat it like another limb or something and then it gets left behind. Ah, well.

  2. As a longtime coffee drinker–I have cut back to a maximum of 3 cups a day of full caffeine coffee–I thank you for this post of the benefits of coffee drinking. I knew most of them already, but one benefit surprised me and hit hard. Both of my parents were strictly tea drinkers, never coffee. My dad died of Alzheimer’s 5 years ago, and my mother has advancing dementia. Not that lack of coffee cause either of these totally, but it is something to think about.
    Thank you.

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier today! I thoroughly enjoyed this read; I sometimes feel guilty for enjoying a few cups of coffee to jump start my mornings! This read was comforting 🙂

  4. I appreciated the information you provided. While my husband is a coffee addict, I, on the other hand, enjoy an occasional cup of coffee, but it must be a flavored coffee. (toasted marshmallow is my fav.!) lol I was told, by my dr. to limit my coffee consumption that contains caffeine because I have “controlled diabetes type 2”. He feels the caffeine increases my glucose level. I would enjoy more! Do you know anything about this? Thanks again for the info. Enjoyed the reading.
