Coffee is one the most favoured drink around the world. If it is properly brewed, specially from the fresh beans, the aroma and taste is simply fantastic. 

But other than drinking coffee for taste, relaxation and simple enjoyment, it has many health benefits. Although, the health benefits of coffee related to the cardiovascular diseases have always been subject to agreements and disagreements, a latest study shows that three coffees a day cuts risk of heart attacks or should we say drinking a moderate amount found to reduce clogging of the arteries.

Researchers found those who drink a moderate amount each day are least likely to have 'coronary calcium' in their arteries – an early indicator of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

The study has been carried out by scientists who studied a group of more than 25,000 Korean men and women with an average age of 41, who had no signs of heart disease. They found the prevalence of detectable CAC was 13.4 per cent amongst the whole group while the average amount of coffee drunk was 1.8 cups per day.  

Their findings showed the calcium ratios were 0.77 for people who had less than one cup per day, 0.66 for those having one to three cups every day, 0.59 for those consuming three to five cups per day, and 0.81 for people having at least five cups or more every day compared with non-coffee drinkers.
