No one has to tell you that the caffeine is essential to kick-starting your day. But you may not know that there's another essential substance in coffee—antioxidants—which are responsible for protecting your cells from damage caused by free-radicals in the environment.

We've becoming addicted, in a manner of speaking, to making our daily coffee in the Starbucks Single Cup Coffeemaker. Because we can simply drop in a pod of our favorite flavor and strength and get going—no cleanup required—we've pretty much abandoned our traditional bulky 12-cup coffeemaker. It also means we no longer have to run out to Starbucks for a refill in the afternoon (so we'll have to find another way to stock up on a stash of cake pops).
