For most, a coffee in the morning is the only way to get the engines going ahead of a day’s work.

But many of us are drinking it at the wrong time according to the Art of Wellbeing.

“As humans we are affected by the 24-hour hormonal cycle called the circadian clock, which controls the release of a hormone called cortisol. This is the hormone which makes us feel alert and awake, and is at peak production in our bodies between 8-9am,” Brendan Brown writes for the Art of Wellbeing.

“The best time to drink coffee, therefore, is between 10-11.30am, and 2-5pm, when your cortisol levels naturally dip. Your body will most need a caffeine hit during these times.”

This is just one of the many tips listed in Brown’s ultimate guide to drinking coffee infographic.
