(WHAS11) - Go ahead and have that second cup of coffee in the morning if you'd like because a new study says it could benefit your heart.

The American Heart Association suggests that drinking two cups, or about 16 ounces total, of coffee a day gives people an 11 percent lower risk of developing heart failure. That is compared to people who do not consume coffee at all.

Despite the good news for those with caffeine cravings, the study also says that four cups a day seem to weaken the protection and five or more cups could prove harmful.
