Calories in my Coffee Cup

Portion Awareness

Coffee habits need to be included in daily discretionary calories. By knowing what calories are in your cup of coffee, you can enjoy your favorite coffee moments to the fullest.

  • Discretionary calories are the calories available to a person to spend after they’ve already met their nutrient needs for a day.1
  • Similar to a balanced budget, you can make choices throughout your day on how you want to “spend” your discretionary calories.
  • Be thoughtful, adding sweeteners or creamers will add calories to your “zero” calorie cup of coffee.
  • People who are active at least 30 minutes a day can have an increased amount of discretionary calories.

Mindful Caffeine Intake


  • For healthy adults the FDA has cited 400 milligrams a day as a good rule of thumb, which is about four or five cups of coffee. This is an amount not generally associated with dangerous, negative effects.5
  • Remember that the size of your cup impacts caffeine levels.
  • Choose instant coffee over brewed or drip for the lowest caffeine levels.
