Coffee Facts

It may seem that a cup of strong coffee first thing in the morning is just that you need to get you up and raring to go for a long day at the office. But, waiting until a bit later may, in fact, be better.

According to scientists, the perfect time to drink your coffee is between 9:30am and 11:30am.

This is due to the way that caffeine interacts with a key hormone called cholesterol which helps to regulate the body’s own internal clock and promote alertness.

Cholesterol levels are naturally high shortly after waking up and can remain high for up to an hour afterwards- with the average peak between 8am and 9am.

Drinking coffee while levels of cholesterol are high can cause people to develop a tolerance to the caffeine it contains, meaning they often need an extra shot in their morning cup to get that same energising effect!

So apparently mid to late morning is the perfect time for coffee. Then, of course, there are those (like us) that think that any time is the perfect time for coffee. Whenever you decide to have yours we wish you a very happy drinking!
