I love coffee, I always have. Admittingly, I am a heavy coffee drinker. I have been drinking it since my early twenties (and more than 5 cups per day).

In recent years, I sometimes can drink two pots PER DAY. I don't go to expensive coffee shops and shell out the big bucks for something I can make at home just as good and be more cost effective. The last time I had a thorough check up (inside and out, with a fitness test) was 3 months ago (I get one every 6 months), and I am in excellent condition.

In addition, caffeine (speaking in terms of someone whom uses it much less than I do), can also be used as a mild diuretic to remove water when dieting for certain goals--where applicable (so it has its uses). When I donated one of my kidney's to my wife's mother (to save her life sometime ago), I asked the kidney specialist if I should restrict caffeinated coffee (because of its diuretic properties), because I was concerned on overworking one kidney. He said I did not have to based upon individual properties and personal history.
