BackgroundHabitual coffee consumption is protective against coronary heart disease in women; however, it is not clear whether such cardioprotection is conferred on those who have already experienced an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Our aim was to investigate whether coffee consumption affected mortality after AMI. Materials and methodsWe carried out a dose–response meta-analysis of prospective studies that examined the relationship between coffee intake and mortality after an AMI. Using a… 
Coffee consumption and risk of myocardial infarction: a dose-response meta-analysis of observational studies
Daily drinking of more than three cups of coffee was associated with a significantly increased risk of myocardial infarction, and a positive association was only found in men but not in women.

Moderate coffee consumption is associated with lower risk of mortality in prior Acute Coronary Syndrome patients: a prospective analysis in the ERICO cohort

Coffee consumption and cardiovascular disease: a condensed review of 1 epidemiological evidence and mechanisms 2
In persons with well-controlled blood pressure, coffee consumption is probably safe, but this hypothesis should be confirmed by further investigations, and hypertensive patients with uncontrolled blood pressure should avoid consuming large doses of caffeine.

If coffee decreases the possibility of myocardial infarction and it is no longer harmful from a carcinogenicity point of view, it is the time to acknowledge Gustav III (1746-1792 CE), the adventures king of Sweden's, pioneer experiment on coffee safety as the first documented " randomized clinical trial " in medical history.
Coffee, Caffeine, and Health Outcomes: An Umbrella Review.
Findings indicate that coffee can be part of a healthful diet and associated with a probable decreased risk of Parkinson's disease and type-2 diabetes and an increased risk of pregnancy loss.
Significant Impact of Coffee Consumption on MR-Based Measures of Cardiac Function in a Population-Based Cohort Study without Manifest Cardiovascular Disease
A significant positive and independent association between CC and MRI-based systolic and diastolic cardiac function was found and CC was inversely associated with VAT independent of demographic variables and cardiovascular risk factors but not independent of alcohol consumption.

Coffee consumption and health: umbrella review of meta-analyses of multiple health outcomes
Coffee consumption seems generally safe within usual levels of intake, with summary estimates indicating largest risk reduction for various health outcomes at three to four cups a day, and more likely to benefit health than harm.


Tea Consumption and Mortality After Acute Myocardial Infarction
Self-reported tea consumption in the year before acute myocardial Infarction is associated with lower mortality after infarction, and age- and sex-adjusted mortality was lower among moderate tea drinkers and heavy tea drinkers.
Coffee Consumption and Risk of Cardiovascular Events After Acute Myocardial Infarction: Results From the GISSI (Gruppo Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nell’Infarto miocardico)-Prevenzione Trial
No association between moderate coffee intake and cardiovascular events was observed in post–myocardial infarction patients, and coffee consumption did not change the risk of coronary heart disease events, stroke, and sudden death.
Coffee consumption and mortality in women with cardiovascular disease.
Consumption of filtered caffeinated coffee was not associated with CVD or all-cause mortality in women withCVD, and caffeine intake was notassociated with total or CVD mortality.
Influence of Tea Consumption on Acute Myocardial Infarction in China Population
It is found that the risk of AMI increases as tea consumption increases, and green tea consumption had a greater effect on females.
Coffee, CYP1A2 genotype, and risk of myocardial infarction.
Intake of coffee was associated with an increased risk of nonfatal MI only among individuals with slow caffeine metabolism, suggesting that caffeine plays a role in this association.
Coffee consumption and plasma total homocysteine: The Hordaland Homocysteine Study.
An association between coffee consumption and the concentration of total homocysteine in plasma, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for adverse pregnancy outcome, is reported on and should promote future studies on tHcy as a possible mediator of adverse clinical effects related to heavy coffee consumption.
