Drinking coffee has been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular  
disease and heart arrhythmias. 2-3 cups of ground coffee per day had  
the greatest effect but both instant and decaffeinated also showed  
lesser effects. The study involved nearly half a million participants  
with a median age of 58 years.

The greatest effect was seen in those that drank 2-3 cups of ground  
coffee a day, where a 27% lower likelihood of death from any cause was  
seen during a median of 12.5 years of follow up. Since decaffeinated  
coffee works too albeit not as strongly, it is unlikely to be related  
to caffeine but rather to one of the more than 100 phytochemicals  
present in coffee.
