When you're working, you can find that your coffee intake increases a lot.

You either go out to a café to get your daily fix or over-use the coffee machine in the kitchen.

But coffee lovers who have been feeling guilty about their daily fix will be glad to hear that a new study has suggested that drinking up to four cups of coffee a day could slash the chance of an early death.

The interesting results were presented at the ESC Congress yesterday by a group of researchers from Hospital de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain.

They carried out the study on 20,000 middle-aged men and woman for a decade and found that those who consumed coffee regularly had mortality rates almost two thirds lower than those who didn't. 

With every extra two cups, there was a 22% drop in mortality and those who drank four cups had a 64% lower death risk compared to those who rarely or never consumed coffee.

Previous studies have also found that drinking the hot beverage can boost our immune systems and can improve liver function.
