This segment gives data about the nutritional facts of a cup of black coffee. During this topic, a nutritional fact of 100 ml of medium strength, dark, caffeinated coffee is talked about.

Black coffee does not contain any significant amounts of macronutrients, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins and therefore 100ml of coffee contains only 1-2 kcal.

However, the final nutritional facts of a cup of coffee will be influenced by several factors:
  • The addition of milk, cream, sugar or different sweeteners to the style or taste will affect the ultimate final nutritional facts of a cup of coffee any may increase the content of calories.
  • Variations in cup sizes used across Europe can alter the nutritional value.
