    34 South Korea 78.6 75.0 82.2
    35 Chile 78.6 75.5 81.5
    36 Denmark 78.3 76.0 80.6
    37 Cuba 78.3 76.2 80.4
    38 United States 78.2 75.6 80.8
    39 Portugal 78.1 75.0 81.2

    Coffee Consumption (per capita)

    Finland 11.4 kg
    Aruba 9.2 kg
    Iceland 9.1 kg
    Norway 9 kg
    Denmark 8.1 kg
    Sweden 7.9 kg
    Bermuda 7.5 kg
    Switzerland 7.4 kg
    Netherlands 6.8 kg
    Germany 6.6 kg
    Italy 5.7 kg
    Slovenia 5.6 kg
    Austria 5.5 kg
    France 5.4 kg
    Malta 5.1 kg
    Belgium 5 kg
    Croatia 5 kg
    Lebanon 4.9 kg
    Brazil 4.7 kg
    Greece 4.6 kg
    Latvia 4.4 kg
    Portugal 4.3 kg
    United States 4.2 kg
    Brunei 4.1 kg
    Canada 4 kg
    Cyprus 4 kg
    Spain 4 kg
    Costa Rica 3.9 kg
    Israel 3.8 kg
    Republic of Macedonia 3.7 kg
    Hungary 3.5 kg
    New Zealand 3.5 kg
    Algeria 3.3 kg is ranked

    Japan has highest life expectancy, but their per capita consumption is ranked 37th. So no correlation? Wrong- they may only consume 3.7kg of coffee per year but its the GOOD stuff (Jamaican Blue Mountain and Sumatra Mandehling). Note Aruba (Jamaica) has the second highest consumption in the world (Jamaican Blue mountain is good!).

    The Nordic countries all have very high coffee consumption (Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark) all in top 7. Their life expectancy is aso good- Iceland, despite being blody cod, is third- Sweden 7th. Finland somewhat slips up- but I think that has more to do with smoking stats than anything else.

    The big surprise is Italy that in Life Expectancy bats in at 12th (despite the driving). The Italians consume 41 Billion cups of coffee a year- so I think that this proves the bean is a lexir of long levity.

    I also find it very interesting that some of the producing countries where "the good stuff" is grown (and drunk) bat above their weight in Life expectancy- see Martinique (18th), Costa Rica (30th), Cuba (37th)

    Now the USA is only ranked 38th in life expectancy (and 23rd in coffee consumption). I reckon you guys get your consumption per capita up to around 5kg a year) and you will put the health care industry out of business.

    NB- the above research is totally based on a lot of guess work and a great deal of BS! Also I have not had my flatwhite this am yet

    Researchers have claimed that drinking a cup of coffee everyday could be the secret to long life. According to a study, people who drank one to two cups of coffee a day had more elastic arteries than those who drank little or no coffee, reports the Daily Mail.

    Some guesswork? I do that everyday while raising children! Finland (my wife is Finnish) may have slipped up so due to their excessive alcohol consumption. Even coffee can't save you from that...although coffee may have helped. Coffee drinkers, according to an article at Life Extension Magazine, helps combat liver disease.

    I Doubt this is true because if it were then coffee wouldn't even be available in stores.
