So there you have it: a habit that so many of us enjoy that is suggested, once again, to actually be good for us. That number rises to 16 percent for those who drank six to seven cups, before jumping down to 14 percent for those consuming eight or more.

Drawing information from the UK's Biobank data resource, which holds information on around nine million people, researchers were also able to profile British java drinkers.

'These findings suggest the importance of non-caffeine constituents in the coffee-mortality association and provide further reassurance that coffee drinking can be a part of a healthy diet'. It includes about half a million Brits who contributed their data and DNA to the United Kingdom biobank, and it finds an inverse relationship between people drinking up to eight or more cups per day and all-cause mortality.

Nonetheless, the researchers say coffee drinking could be a crucial part of a healthy diet.

The study looked at patterns in an existing dataset, so it's hard to say whether coffee is responsible for a longer life or if it is just associated with one. "People think of caffeine, but it's likely that some of the most beneficial compounds are not the caffeine".

But not only was this a very large study that demonstrated significant findings, it's one of many studies that indicate coffee may be beneficial for health.

The research team plans to break down the Biobank data by coffee preparation type - pressed coffee, versus filtered coffee, for example, to see if that makes any difference to health.

"We know that some people metabolize caffeine quite slowly and are less tolerant of the apparent physical affects of caffeine, which of course comes from many sources other than coffee".

"Early on, there were some reports of potential adverse effects as far as coffee and health outcomes", said Alice Lichtenstein, the Gershoff Professor of nutrition science and policy at Tufts University. Coffee-drinkers fared better than people who did not drink coffee. "Or at least not be bad", she said.

A cup of brewed coffee represents a contribution of up to 1.8 grams of fiber of the recommended intake of between 20 to 38 grams.

In the end, there were 14,225 deaths due to cancer (58 percent); cardiovascular disease (20 percent) and respiratory disease (4 percent). The results suggested that people who drank two to five cups of coffee in a day were about 12% less likely to die than non-coffee-drinkers over the 10-year time period in the study.

It might reduce inflammation in the body, improve how insulin gets used, it might help liver function and it might benefit the linings of the blood vessels.

The research didn't include whether participants drank coffee black or with cream and sugar.
