What's the Best Time to Drink a Cup of Coffee?



When’s the best time to drink a cup of coffee? Well it’s not right after you get up in the morning. Due to the release of Cortisol and your circadian rhythm at 8-9 am the release of cortisol peaks at this time, and if you drink caffeine/coffee at that time makes you more resistant to it, thus making it more ineffective. 

You also want to avoid 12-1pm and 5:30-6pm if you want to feel the benefits of the coffee you’re drinking. Another way to do make sure your cup of coffee does it’s magic the best - wait until 1 hour after you get up in the morning regardless of the time. Why? When you wake up 50% of the cortisol is released, and waiting 1 hour until you drink your cup of coffee ensures you’ll get the benefits of the caffeine.
