I always knew it was a good drink, but I had no idea there were do many benefits! Crikey even pain relief!

I just read this out to my hubby...he's got a genetic leaning towards quite a few health problems including  1. 4. 5. 6. 8.

He's just agreed to replace a couple of his drinks a day, with coffees.
