Coffee is much better than soda is.
Soda has two very bad things in it:
High Fructose Corn Syrup, which inhibits insulin production, contributing to obesity and diabetes (potentially), and also inhibits copper metabolism, which is bad, especially in men, as it can affect the prostate and other parts of the reproductive system.
It also has brominated vegetable oil. This is especially difficult for your body to digest, and every time I intake any, I get acne.
Coffee has antioxidants, a cup of it has less than five calories, and tastes delicious if brewed correctly. It does have more caffeine, so if your buddy is sensitive to caffeine, he should be aware of it, but that's the only bad thing it has going for it. And some caffeine is good for you.
