A systematic review of several studies found that people with a higher risk for liver disease — like smokers and those who drank a lot of alcohol — who also drank 2-3 cups of coffee per day did better on liver tests when compared to people who didn't drink coffee. People who already had liver disease were also less likely to have it progress to cirrhosis, and people with hepatitis C saw a better response to their treatment when they drank more coffee.
