To the Editor I read with interest the article on the association of coffee consumption with reduced risk of arrhythmias.1 In agreement with Goldberger and Hayward,2 I suggest that caution is needed when interpreting these findings. Concluding that coffee is safe without distinguishing between forms and preparations of coffee may be misleading, and it may encourage patients to drink as much coffee as they wish.
