All that is missing for these coffee desserts is a good cup of coffee. But how many cups a day is still beneficial for a person and how many cups is, on the contrary, bad for his health?

It is known that, thanks to the caffeine content, a person enjoys improved concentration, increased energy and faster reactions after drinking coffee. Caffeine also stimulates the physical side, when burning fat, thanks to which it provides the body with quick fuel and the level of adrenaline in the blood increases. That organism will start for better and more efficient physical performance.

According to studies, it has been found that people who regularly consume an average of three cups of coffee a day suffer from less cardiovascular disease and have a lower risk of stroke and type 2 diabetes.

However, there is a risk that if people overdo it with coffee, negative effects may occur. Too much caffeine intake affects the human body in such a way that it causes insomnia, anxiety, increased blood pressure and also digestive problems.

This also applies to coffee, too much of everything is harmful. It is therefore necessary to monitor the amount of coffee consumed, as kidney failure can occur in case of an overdose of caffeine.

So if you bake one of our pastries and desserts, one coffee is more than enough.
