Coffee, black or otherwise, contains caffein, which is a potent stimulant. Drinking it before going to bed gets in the way of sleep for most people. That is why a majority of students drink it at night during or while preparing for exams so as to remain mentally alert and sleep-free. Black coffee is not good for somebody having some gastro-intestinal disorders, such as GERD and ulcer. It triggers excessive stomach acid secretion.

I am actually not very much for coffee because of the caffeine in it. And especially before you go to sleep, this might affect your sleep patterns as caffeine rejuvenates your cells and get's them stimulated. That would disturb your sleep as you might want to some activity rather than sleep after drinking coffee. Also it is an addictive habit and could get you addicted to coffee for life. Cheers! Ram

It is coffee at its most basic and some will argue its best. I had a boss that mocked my penchant for adding sugar and cream to my coffee. He would say, "You're perverting your coffee." As a result, many coffee lovers that adore their black coffee can be described as coffee purists. That's because black coffee at its most basic is coffee at its most pure. Black coffee can also be considered gourmet, if you are brewing a cup using specialty coffee beans. Java coffee beans or Kona coffee beans make exceptional cups of black coffee. However, black coffee does not simply mean that you have to drink it straight up. Rather, black coffee is just about presentation and sugar can be added to a cup of black coffee for extra sweetness. The only real rule of black coffee is that milk, cream, or any other type of whitener cannot be added. This is because it will change the color of the coffee, meaning that your cup of black coffee is no longer black, now what do you think about that?

According to the book "eat right for your type" you can gain weight if you are o+ blood type. I believe this to be true if I drink too much black coffee in a short type. I am talking about 5-6 cups a day. I do believe if you keep it to a moderate level. It can actually help you out.
