Will Coffee Raise Your Cholesterol?

People who rely on coffee for a pick-me-up may also see a boost in their cholesterol levels especially if they sip an unfiltered variety, a new study suggests.
The researchers found that among more than 21,000 Norwegian adults, those who indulged in several cups of coffee a day generally had slightly higher cholesterol than non-drinkers. The extent of the difference, however, depended on brewing method.
People who drank the “least filtered” kinds of coffee made with a French press, for example showed the largest cholesterol effects: On average, those who drank six or more cups a day had total cholesterol levels that were eight to 12 points higher, versus non-drinkers.
