In a breakthrough, life-changing* study, researchers have found that drinking coffee is linked to living longer.
(*breakthrough and life-changing for those of us who thrive on the stuff.)
The study, presented at the European Society of Cardiology , found that people who drink four cups of coffee or more a day have a lower risk of death than their caffeine-free friends.
Spanning 10 years, nearly 20,000 participants were quizzed on their health in conjunction with their coffee consumption.
In the end, researchers discovered those who consumed large amounts of the sweet elixir that is coffee were 64 per cent less likely to die of any cause during the period of the study compared to those who said they never or almost never drank coffee.
It's important to note that the study was completely observational. Meaning, it hasn't been proven drinking coffee equals living longer. It was found to merely be a link.
Still, while we're not encouraging you all to go out and consume a diet completely consisting of Arabica, now you've got a worthwhile excuse to tip that bearded hipster barista at your local cafe.
They may, just may, be helping you live longer.
There's no need to even leave the house to partake in the glory that is cafe-standard coffee in order to live longer, though.
