Coffee’s health benefits
Several recent studies have shown that coffee drinking may have more positive effects than just keeping you energized. Some studies have shown a reduction in mortality among regular coffee drinkers, especially older drinkers. Furthermore, there’s some indication that coffee may boost cognitive performance in the elderly, when it is normally declining.
How we get our caffeine
Where and how Americans like to get their coffee seems to change with age as well. Over a third of 18 to 29-year-olds had visited a coffee shop recently, compared to just a quarter of 50 to 64-year-olds. Older Americans were also much more likely to use a standard drip coffee maker, while younger people experimented more with how they got their caffeine kick.
