Is there anything coffee can’t do? I mean, really? The studies keep coming about how good coffee is for us and now, a new study finds even just smelling coffee has its benefits!

Researchers found that just SMELLING coffee helps people perform better on tests. Steven Institute of Technology reports that just the scent of coffee gave people the same energizing effect as drinking the coffee.

Why? It’s the placebo effect. We know that drinking coffee makes us more alert and energized, so smelling it makes us “feel” the same way! Don’t like coffee? Next time just brew a cup and breath it in!
