Is it bad for me to drink coffee?!

Question: Is it bad for me to drink coffee?
Actually I drink more espresso drinks in starbucks than coffee. (btw I'm 13) But I drink it only 1 - 3 times a week. Do you think it's bad?

PS: I don't drink soda so coffee is where I mostly get caffeine....


In moderation it's ok. 1-3 a week is probably as much as you should consume for your age. I assume you are drinking the epsresso blends diluted with milk and sugar and all sorts of other artificial flavoring starbucks adds to their drinks, those extras are what you should look out for, check the calories and fat content of each drink.

Too much caffeine at your age is not very good because you are still growing. If you really like the taste then you can switch to decaf.

I don't really see a problem with it. Although you are probably still growing which coffee isn't good for.

it stains your teeth, but just brush and floss every day so it isnt really bad
