For many people, it is their kick-start to the day.
But a new study has found that drinking certain types of coffee could also help you to live longer.
Researchers studied the elderly inhabitants of Greek Island Ikaria, who boast the highest rates of longevity in the world.
They found that a cup of boiled Greek coffee could hold the key to good cardiovascular health, according to a new study published in SAGE journal Vascular Medicine.
Ikarians are twice as likely to live past the age of 90 than in any other part of Europe, with the islanders tending to live out their latter years in good health, researchers said.
Researchers from University of Athens Medical School looked at links between coffee-drinking habits and endothelial function, which helps to regulate blood clotting and assist the immune system.
Greek coffee is boiled in a special pot and served foamy at the top with grounds at the bottom of the cup.
