Nutrition Facts of Coffee

Coffee is high in potassium and magnesium which aids with organ function, boosts the immune system, and lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

As you can see, Celsius contains more caffeine but coffee is a lot richer in terms of vitamins and minerals. That said, both Celsius and coffee have their own set of advantages in terms of nutritional components.

Quick Comparison (Coffee vs Celsius)

In this section, I have focused on comparing Celsius and coffee in terms of caffeine, calories, sugar, vitamins, and minerals.


Celsius Energy contains more caffeine – a single serving is loaded with 200 to 300 mg of caffeine depending on the variant.

On the other hand, a regular cup of coffee contains around 95 mg of caffeine. However, caffeine content depends on the type of coffee beans, roast style, serving size, and how it is prepared.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) set guidelines for the level of caffeine intake which is 400 mg per day for healthy individuals. The toxic effects of caffeine are likely to occur if you go past the limit.

Even though both Celsius and coffee are within the limit of caffeine intake, always drink in moderation!


Coffee is almost calorie-free depending on how it is made while Celsius contains up to 10 calories.

Calories are not really an issue when comparing these two beverages. The body needs calories for energy and basically to survive.

According to the USDA’s latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans, adult women need somewhere between 1600 to 2400 calories per day while adult men need anywhere from 2000 to 3000 calories per day.

That said, the caloric content of Celsius and coffee are within the limit and you’re going to need more to meet the caloric requirement.


Although Celsius is sugar-free, I’d personally choose coffee because I can control how much sugar I can add to my cup.

Celsius Energy contains the sweetener sucralose, a no-calorie sweetener that is 600 times sweeter than regular sweeter. Unfortunately, sucralose is linked to various controversies such as being the culprit of cancer, weight gain, and diabetes.

Coffee can be sweet too depending on how it is made. I suggest making your own so you know how much sugar to put in.

Bear in mind, that sugar is not unhealthy itself as long as it is sourced naturally – the natural source is better than added sugar. However, excessive intake can lead to a wide range of conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and weight gain.

Vitamins and Minerals

Both Celsius and coffee are loaded with B-Vitamins and minerals.

Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that play a key role in maintaining the body’s organs and their functions.

Is Coffee Good for Your Health?

Can I have a coffee and a Celsius?

Yes, you can have a cup of coffee and a can of Celsius.

However, you shouldn’t consume these beverages at night to avoid sleep problems. It is best to consume coffee in the morning to help you wake up and perhaps Celsius a little after lunch before exercising.

Let me warn you that it is a bad idea to consume coffee and Celsius at the same time if your caffeine tolerance is low.

Does Celsius help you lose weight?

As the company claims, Celsius promotes weight loss. It induces thermogenesis which works well with your metabolism to burn calories resulting in weight loss.

Still, do not rely on Celsius to help you lose weight. A combination of exercise and a healthy diet is the most effective weight loss strategy.

In Summary

Celsius Energy and coffee have advantages in terms of vitamins, minerals, and caffeine. You’ll certainly feel energized after consuming these beverages.

However, no matter how enticing a cup of coffee or a can of Celsius Energy is, you should keep your intake in moderation to avoid adverse effects.
