There are very few calories in coffee...if you drink it black.

calories in coffee

When it comes to the calories in coffee, there’s good news and bad news.

The good news is that if you drink your coffee black, there are very few calories indeed.

So you can feel pretty good about yourself. Coffee is a mild stimulant, is packed with antioxidants and can stand head to head with most other “health” beverages in your local health food store.

The problem with the calories in your coffee is not about the coffee at all. It’s about what you add to your coffee.

The sugar, milk, cream, soy and syrups can all add a lot of extra calories.

Here is a rough breakdown of the calories you can expect to consume, according to how you like to take your coffee.

The figures listed below are for 12-ounce servings.

10 calories - Regular cup of coffee, no cream or sugar

110 calories - Regular cup of coffee, plus cream and sugar

120 calories - Cappuccino

200 calories - Latte

310 calories - Mocha with whipped cream

370 calories - Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino

As you can see, the fancier the coffee concoction, the higher the number of calories.

So, while there are very few calories in coffee itself, the calories in a coffee beverage can be quite high.
