As a New Year’s resolution, Conor was contemplating decreasing his coffee intake. He really likes coffee; the smell, the taste. If you’re thinking of decreasing or even quitting coffee, here’s an interesting post by Conor on the health benefits of coffee.
In my opinion, 3-4 cups of coffee a day is fine. Coffee contains antioxidants and other properties that are good for your health. So, if coffee gives you pleasure and it tastes good and is also good for your health (when consumed in moderation), then perhaps think about not quitting but just reducing your intake.

I drink coffee. It helps me wake, it helps me focus. It helps me write.
I love the smell. (I don’t think I have ever had a coffee that tasted quite as good the smell.) Coffee smells good.
On a good day, I’ll have 3. On a tough day, where my concentration is not good, where I have been woken a few times during the night by my visiting daughter… I’ll get up to 5.
And when its really bad… I can make it to 7.
I drink expresso. Here in Spain it’s called “Cafe solo”. Sometimes I’ll go for a long black, in spanish “cafe americano”.

It looks like good stuff. Maybe I should…
