The Healthiest Way To Drink Coffee

The healthiest way of drinking your coffee is to drink it black. Black coffee is healthier due to having no dairy (or non dairy) milk and no sugar. Whatever you add to your coffee will increase the calories and undermine the health benefits.

This what nutrition experts told us.


for a healthier cup of coffee enjoy it black and drink coffee without milk. Reducing your sugar intake is never a bad thing, and, if you are a 3 cups a day kind of person and take 2 sugars that is 6 teaspoons or 42 grams of excessive sugar intake, that you can easily cut out.

Also, there is the caffeine content question, due to the caffeine in coffee and the recommended daily limit of 400 milligrams of caffeine daily.

If you have more than 2 cups make sure the subsequent ones are light in caffeine or caffeine free so that you do not exceed the daily caffeine quota.

How To Drink Coffee Without Sugar

Coffee without sugar is very easy to drink and get used to. You can simply replace your sugar with a number of alternatives that dramatically change how your coffee will taste.

Trust me – I used to love sugar in my coffee and the weaned my off of it. Even small changes, like changing your white sugar to brown sugar.

Here are some alternatives:

  • 1. Agave. 
  • 2. Stevia. 
  • 3. Honey
  • 4. Coconut Sugar.
  • 5. Brown Sugar
  • 6. Saccharin.
  • 7. Neotame. 
  • 8. Cinnamon.
  • 9. Cocoa

The easiest way is of course to slowly reduce over a period of time how much sugar you put in you coffee each week. I suggest reducing by 20% each week. Then, in a little over a months time you will be ready to enjoy sugar free cups of coffee.

How To Drink Coffee Black

Drinking coffee black when you are not a drinker of black coffee is something that you can easily do. Simply follow the same steps as above and slowly reduce the amount of milk that you put in your coffee.

Eventually, you will get there. Drinking black coffee is good for training your taste buds and being able to identify the individual flavors of different coffee beans.

I’m not a drinker of black coffee, I have a preference for lattes and Vietnamese style coffee that are made with fruit – but that is another story.

Every time I try out a new coffee, especially a single origin coffee I have it black for about the first week of trying it.

Coffee is love, it's more than love — it's a passion of mine. I've had the luck to have travelled and enjoyed the most exotic of coffee's and unique flavors, brewing methods and techniques of making the perfect coffee from Thai hill tribe coffee to Indonesian volcanic coffee, Malaysian coffee that comes in a tea bag and the array of flavors in Vietnam, from Vanilla to Orange to Coconut to Avocado to even salt coffee and the famous egg coffee. The best part of my coffee adventures is getting to mix with the locals over a nice brew and learning how they make it! I'm cited and referenced on Google Scholar for the topic of coffee.
