10 Surprising Things That Coffee Drinkers Should Know

Do you know a lot about this caffeinated beverage?

Coffee drinkers start their day with the popular beverage not only for its addictive taste, but it also helps them survive a hectic day. With billions of cups being consumed every day, that is enough proof that there are a lot of coffee lovers out there.

However, coffee also has some shocking things that all fans of the beverage should know. Here are the ten interesting facts about the cup of ooe.

There is actually no sense in pointing out how strong you’d like your coffee to be as coffee is evaluated by saturation, bitterness, sourness, sweetness, and tonicity.

2. Drinking coffee has perfect timing

Some people replace their breakfast with just a cup of coffee. However, drinking the beverage has perfect timing to get its benefits and results.

The best times are, 8 AM, 9 AM, 12 AM, 1 PM, 5:30 PM, and 6:30 PM. And that’s it. Don’t drink coffee after that time or else you’ll be awake most of the night.

3. Skip coffee if you’re taking some medications.
