Calories in Coffee – How Much Does an Average Cup of Coffee Contain?

 

Coffee has an undeniable place in our lives – whether it’s used to get you going in the mornings, as a social ice-breaker, a reason to ask that guy or girl out on a date – or a simply daily indulgence of yours – it’s something we need to realize carries calories too.

A plain cup of brewed coffee has less than 5 calories — and no fat. But if you “dress up” your coffee with extras, whether at home or your favorite coffee shop, you also add extra calories.

See how many calories these extras can add to your coffee:

  • Sugar: 16 calories for 1 teaspoon (4 g)
  • Heavy whipping cream: 101 calories for 2 tablespoons (30 ml)
  • Half-and-half: 37 calories for 2 tablespoons (30 ml)
  • Fat-free milk: 10 calories for 2 tablespoons  (30 ml)

Sticking to plain coffee without the frills and fuss seems to be the healthier option – but consider the below table too:
