Aim of this paper is to critically review the evidence available regarding the relationship between coffee consumption and coronary risk. Large prospective studies do not support the hypothesis that moderate (< 5 cups of coffee a day) caffeine consumption significantly increases the risk of coronary heart disease. Data on higher coffee consumption are scanty and do not allow the acquisition of established conclusions, even if they suggest a statistically significant trend in coronary risk with increasing dose.
