Coffee Infographic

I saw this “pros and cons of drinking coffee” infographic from Jason Tham last year, and saved it, meaning to repost it because it’s so excellent. Better late than never — here it is! Click for larger image.

Adventurecation! (6 principles)


  1. Interesting! I guess it’s all about balance; and as an insomniac I feel the personal benefits from limiting my consumption to a cup a day, probably outweigh the possible health benefits from higher consumption. We have zero cancer in my family, but for people who have a genetically higher risk of that kind of disease, then maybe drinking more coffee could be helpful? I think I’ll try chucking my grounds onto the garden now, though! Thanks for sharing.

    Try Dave Asprey’s Upgraded Bulletproof Coffee. Mold Free. Expensive , but so worth it. It seems to be big in the paleo, bio-hacking community. I thought it was a gimmick, but unlike every other coffee my husband and I have had (organic artisanal, whatever) ..it doesn’t raise our blood sugar or leave us feeling funky. I’m an absolute convert. Apparently, most coffee is wet processed and, therefore, contains mold. It’s definitely worth checking out.

  3. This is great! I go through periods in my life when I drink too much coffee and periods when I try to cut back. Like Sara said, it really is about balance + moderation. Also I think we have to consider the source of the coffee as well and the way it’s grown.

  4. Love this! I always love reading about the different theories on drinking coffee; there are so many circulating around. The debate is still out as to what the affect, if any, it has on blood glucose levels! Ah! To drink it or not to drink, that is the question! I’d have to say from my personal experience, moderation is key; if that. Since it’s a stimulant, I have to water it down, or have 1/2 caffeine and 1/2 decaf, if I don’t I get extremely anxious and irritable 🙂 But, yes, I agree that if you don’t experience any negative side effects from it, you’re a healthy adult, and it seems to work for you; drink up. Thanks for the post! 🙂

  5. I am trying to quit coffee and reading about pesticides and weight gain has made me more determined! Thanks for re-posting!

  6. I’ll support anything that justifies drinking coffee…..:-D
