A new study which was published in the journal European Society of Cardiology found that drinking up to three cups of coffee per day may protect you from heart disease. Amongst people that were not diagnosed with heart disease, study participants drank 0.5-3.0 cups of coffee per day. They had a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and early death than non-coffee drinkers. Filtered coffee catches a compound called cafestol that exists only in the oily part of coffee and can help with reducing LDL (bad cholesterol) and reduce heart disease risk. Therefore, it’s better for you to use a French press or Turkish coffee maker where the cafestol will not be removed.
