Drinking more coffee could be the key to adding years to your life, according to a new study.

After surveying more than half a million people between the ages of 38 and 73 over a 10 year period, the results of the study revealed that coffee drinkers may actually live longer than non-coffee drinkers.

Researchers from the Journal of the American Medical Association found that those who drank at least one cup of a coffee a day lowered their risk of dying earlier by 6% and those who consumed as many as six cups a day had lowered their risk by 16%. So, go ahead and order that extra latte you’ve been craving all morning or two, or three, or even four!

Drink up, coffee lovers!
