Let's Talk About Coffee

Coffee has a pretty controversial reputation. It is one of those things that you are either for or against and with so many articles, posts and studies all pointing in two very different directions, it can be hard to figure out what the truth really is.

While they are all technically sugar and taste sweet, the three differ in their chemical structures, the way your body digests and metabolizes them, how they affect your health and the actual sweetness level differs between all three as well.
