7. Your Liver May Thank You
Coffee drinking has been associated with better readings on liver function tests and an improved response to Hepatitis C treatments. It may also confer some degree of protection against liver cancers

8. Decreased Risk of Dementia
If you’re still not drinking coffee, you might want to start by the time you hit 40, as a link has been demonstrated between coffee drinking in midlife and a reduced risk of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia later in life.

9. Decreased Risk of Parkinson’s Disease
Coffee drinking has been associated with a moderate decrease in occurrence of Parkinson’s Disease.
