Evidence also suggests it cuts the risk of certain cancers, diabetes, liver disease, and dementia.

The research team, which also included experts from the University of Edinburgh, reviewed all the available evidence on coffee consumption, combining the findings of 201 published studies.

Overall they found three to four cups a day offered the biggest benefit.

The NHS recommends pregnant women have no more than 200mg of caffeine a day - two mugs of instant coffee - because too much can increase the risk of miscarriage.

But - it is important to note - the studies used mainly observational data, which means lower quality evidence, which means no firm conclusions can be drawn about cause and effect. What we can say is that people who already enjoy moderate amounts of coffee as part of their diet are most probably getting health benefits from it, rather than harm. A high coffee intake was linked with an 18 percent decrease in cancer risk, compared with a low intake. In other words, if you already drink coffee, enjoy it, but try to make it as healthy as possible.

Or, conversely, how much is not enough if you want to harness those supposed health benefits? Moderate coffee intake is usually considered to be around four or five daily cups, or the equivalent of up to 400 milligrams of caffeine per day. They found that there appeared to be a direct correlation between moderate coffee consumption and lower risks of heart problems, liver disease, and cancer. The best outcome was witnessed for liver conditions like cirrhosis of the liver. "We simply do not know", Guallar wrote, continuing, "Coffee drinking is a complex behavior determined by cultural norms and associated with multiple socioeconomic, lifestyle, dietary, and health behaviors".

However, it's worth noting that drinking a lot of coffee can also be detrimental to your health.

New analysis shows the popular beverage is associated with a lower risk of death with the largest reduction in risk coming from three cups a day.

"Factors, for example, age, regardless of whether individuals smoked or not and how much exercise they took could all have had an impact", he said.

Finally, Guallar cautions that drinking coffee is sometimes linked with less healthful habits, such as eating sugary cakes or other fatty products.
