How much coffee do you drink a day?

I drink coffee at least once a day sometimes twice a day….Definitely everyday…..Usually, one to two cups a day, most of the time I drink it in the afternoon to finish my day…..Two or three times a day. They say an apple a day keeps the doctors away. Well, new studies are showing a cup of coffee a day could have some of these same health benefits.

For Owner Anthony Kirk he’s seen coffee and his shop improve mental and emotional health in a time where these forms of health have been a big concern. Anthony Kirk (Turntable Coffee Owner) informed us, “definitely as a coffee shop owner, as a place where people gather you can see that not only does the product help people get through the day, make the alert and focus them.

While most people love coffee with a lot of added sugar. Courtney Searcy (Madison County Resident) told 39 News, “one of my favorite drinks is a cappuccino.” Research shows black coffee is actually the healthiest form.
