U.S. -

It's a morning routine we all know and love: get out of bed, turn on the pot of coffee and then down your first cup.  But it looks like we’ve been doing this all wrong. 

Experts tell Smithsonian.com there's an optimal time to drink your coffee- between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.     This is the period when the cortisol levels in your body start to fall. 

Cortisol is related to stress and alertness.  The experts say when your cortisol levels are naturally high the coffee will not have the same or the maximum effect.
