How many calories are there in Coffeeza coffee capsules?
The people who strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle and are conscious of their calorie intake may be wondering how drinking coffee everyday fits into a calorie-conscious diet. Well, you don’t have to worry, because coffee is extremely calorie-efficient, and it gives energy and health benefits at almost no calorie intake.
However, the type of coffee preparation and the final beverage you consume matters. Let's take a look further.
A calorie refers to the amount of energy contained in a particular food or drink. To function, we all need calories or energy, which we get from food. Issues arise when the number of calories we consume exceeds the energy we use. Excess calories are converted to fat and stored in our bodies. When trying to lose weight or live a healthy life, it's important to be aware of how many calories you're unknowingly consuming.

The calorie content in an espresso is very negligible. Now, there are 30 calories in one Coffeeza capsule of roasted and ground coffee (5.5gms). Espresso is produced when hot water is forced through the ground coffee beans at high pressure and extracts the liquid coffee into your cup, leaving the residual grounds in the used capsules means that a cup of coffee contains even fewer calories, which is around 1-2 calories.
