Some of us enjoy coffee so much that we have multiple cups every day, whether it's a latte, mocha, or espresso.
But what effect does this have on our health? According to a new study, the sort of coffee we drink makes a difference.
However, according to new research, it could also be related to how you prepare your coffee and your gender.
The data show that consuming espresso was linked to the largest gender gap in cholesterol levels, whereas plunger (cafetière) coffee was linked to the smallest.
Diterpenes, cafestol, and kahweol, all naturally occurring compounds in coffee, elevate blood cholesterol levels.
The brewing process is important, although it's unclear how much of an impact espresso coffee has and in what quantities.
