Does coffee have calories and, if so, how many?

You drink it in the morning, you drink it in the afternoon. You drink it with friends and alone at your desk. In fact, you’re rarely seen without it. And while the drink we should be talking about here is water, in fact it’s coffee that you can’t seem to get enough of. We’re...

Why is everyone adding mushrooms to their coffee?

Mushrooms might be a tasty addition to pizzas, pasta sauces and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, but would you drop a few of them into your morning cup of coffee? It might seem a bit absurd, even in today’s butter-coffee-obsessed world, but mushroom coffee is being touted as the next big thing...
