How many calories in one
cup of coffee?

Coffee, the most widely consumed beverage globally, largely due to its caffeine content.

It’s a brewed drink prepared from the seeds of berries from certain Coffea species, roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor.

Water is the main substance for coffee brewing, therefore plain coffee contains almost zero calories and does provide a boost of energy because of the caffeine content.

The information below gives you a gauge of Calories per 8 ounces (240 mL).

Black coffee contains | 2
Iced black coffee | 2
Espresso | 20
Cold press (nitro cold brew) | 2
Brew coffee from flavored beans | 2
Coffee with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of French vanilla creamer | 32
Coffee with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of skim milk | 7
Nonfat latte | 72
Flavored latte | 134
Nonfat cappuccino | 46
Nonfat macchiato | 52
Nonfat mocha | 129
Nonfat frozen coffee drink | 146

Because of its concentration, espresso has more calories than brewed coffee per ounce, but a typical shot of espresso is an ounce (30ml), which has approximately 2 calories.

While plain brewed coffee contains almost no calories, the additions of milk, sugar, and other flavorings are much higher in calories.
