Predicting Your Perfect Cup Of Coffee

New study finds the EXACT moment coffee will benefit YOU the most (and your best serving size).

Flip – How?

Why Study This?

Researchers Say:

  • 1/3 of Americans experience sleep loss.
  • Sleep loss impacts our performance and quality of life.
  • Caffiene can boost our performance when used correctly – so they developed “an app for that.”

How It Works

How Does It Work?

The app uses an algorithim that considers your sleep cycle and how much caffeine you plan to consume – and then spits out what you should drink and when.

Researchers found users upgraded their performance by more than 60% & ironically reduced their caffeine consumption by more than 60%.


  • 6 out of 10 Americans drink coffee daily – this has held steady over the last several years.
  • Coffee drinkers consume nearly 3 cups on avg. every day.
  • Women drink slightly more coffee than men.
  • Previous Research: 500 mg of caffeine (2 cups of coffee) or lower = best health benefits.

This study mentions sleep loss as a problem for performance for both civilians and the military. One of the head researchers works for the Dept. of Defense. Read more on the health benefits of coffee:

Some studies pointed to a reduced risk ofA cardiovascular disease, Parkinson”s disease and type 2 diabetes. PriorA researchA has shown that daily coffee drinkers have lower mortality rates compared to non-imbibers.
