For the research, a team of scientists analyzed data of 1,028 adults who were enrolled in the ANRS CO13-HEPAVIH cohort, an ongoing nationwide study of patients in France with both HIV and hepatitis C. Researchers recorded that about 26.6% of participants reported drinking at least three cups of coffee daily.

The team discovered that at least three cups of coffee daily was associated with a 50% reduction in all-cause mortality risk.

Lead investigator Dominique Salmon-Céron, Ph.D. – of the Service des Maladies Infectieuses et Tropicales, Hôpital Cochin, and Université Paris Descartes in France, says: “This study shows that elevated coffee consumption (≥3 cups/day) halves all-cause mortality risk in patients co-infected with HIV-HCV.”
