     multiple cups of coffee

    Today, it seems most of the world runs on coffee, and most likely, it’s the first beverage the majority of Americans drink each day! With this nectar from the coffee fruit being so highly consumed, it’s only natural to ask: How much coffee should we be consuming each day?

    For example-- the amount of caffeine

    One of the main factors people think about when drinking coffee is caffeine. The acceptable amount for adults is around 400 milligrams/day, which is about 4 cups of black coffee (pregnant women should not exceed half that amount). The overdose amount for caffeine is around 75 cups of coffee, so it seems most avid coffee drinkers are safe!

    The Secret to the Best Iced Coffee You've Ever Had

    Posted on

    Hey Gang, Christopher here, If you like iced coffee from popular coffee chains but hate the ridiculous prices (especially if you have them every day), then chances are you have attempted to make your own iced coffee at home. And if all you did was dump ice cubes on coffee that you prepared hot, then you were probably very disappointed with how it turned out --watery, bland, flavorless. You start thinking, maybe the guys over at the coffee shop really know what they’re doing (they do) and I should just let them do their job and pay the price. Well you can but you don’t always have to. Especially when you know what they know about making iced coffee.

    So what’s the big secret?
