It's not the trendy choice among coffee drinkers, but filtered could be the healthiest variety when it comes to the health of our heart.

In fact, drinking a daily cup is better for us than not drinking coffee at all. Coffee drinkers have a 15 percent reduced risk of death from any cause, and they also have a lower risk of dying from heart disease by 12 percent if they're men and 20 percent for women.

Drinking any other type of coffee didn't have any impact on heart disease risk—except for men aged 60 and over, whose risk rose slightly if they weren't drinking filtered coffee.

Around 30 years ago, researchers had reckoned that coffee drinking raises levels of cholesterol, and especially 'bad' LDL cholesterol, but the offending substances could be filtered out.

Picking up the theme, researchers at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden wanted to find out if coffee actually increased the chances of a heart attack or heart disease. They studied the coffee-drinking habits of 508,747 Swedes for nearly 20 years, during which time 46,341 participants died, and 12,621 of these from heart disease, and 6202 of those from a heart attack.

But coffee wasn't the culprit. "For people who know they have a high cholesterol level and want to do something about it, stay away from unfiltered brew, including coffee made from a cafetiere. For everyone else, drink your coffee with a clear conscience and go for filtered," said researcher Dag Thelle.
