How to Make Flavoured Coffees

featureI found out that according to research (this one was done at Vanderbilt University in Nashville) the caffeine in coffee speeds up metabolic rate by 5 percent and boosts fat burn during physical activity by 31 percent – and that is good enough for me to keep drinking coffee!
