On seeing the dark berries in the 14th century, who could think that they will form the most idolized and prevalent beverage of the 21st century?  After the discovery of coffee bean in the Ethiopian plateaus, coffee made a noteworthy entry into Europe in 17th century and soon made the world fall in love with the taste and end results.

It was indicated that people who drink two or cups of coffee are 18% less likely to die from diseases like diabetes, stroke, and cancer or kidney disease.

A second study collected data from a European investigation into cancer and nutrition study to find evidence for a link between coffee and early death. This time 521,330 people from 10 European countries were monitored for 16.4 years and again 25% of coffee drinkers from each nation were less likely to die a premature death. Both studies ended up with similar results for both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee.
