What’s Your Coffee IQ? (Quiz)

Answer: False. Moderate amounts of caffeine–about 300 milligrams, roughly three cups of coffee–apparently cause no harm in most healthy adults. At high levels (more than 744 milligrams per day, around seven or eight cups of coffee), caffeine may increase calcium and magnesium loss in urine. But recent studies suggest it does not increase your risk for bone loss, especially if you get enough calcium. You can offset the calcium lost from drinking one cup of coffee by adding just two tablespoons of milk.

Coffee and a quiz about this delightful brew is reminding me about having a steaming hot cup of coffee in the near future. I don't drink it each day but it is something that I look forward to, especially the flavourful and tempting aroma.

got them all right except the last one - but was glad I was wrong.
I always use a French press - or plunger, as we call them down under - to make my coffee and select that option if available when I'm out. I just prefer the taste that way. :)
