I have gotten to where I can drink a cup of coffee immediately before bed and sleep just fine. Its all about tolerances I guess.
After analyzing data on 126,000 people for as long as 18 years, Harvard researchers calculate that compared with not partaking in America's favorite morning drink, downing one to three cups of caffeinated coffee daily can reduce diabetes risk by single digits. But having six cups or more each day slashed men's risk by 54% and women's by 30% over java avoiders.
"Overall, the research shows that coffee is far more healthful than it is harmful," says Tomas DePaulis, PhD, research scientist at Vanderbilt University's Institute for Coffee Studies, which conducts its own medical research and tracks coffee studies from around the world. "For most people, very little bad comes from drinking it, but a lot of good."
"People who smoke and are heavy drinkers have less heart disease and liver damage when they regularly consume large amounts of coffee compared to those who don't,"
There's also some evidence that coffee may help manage asthma and even control attacks when medication is unavailable, stop a .ache, boost mood, and even prevent cavities.

I don't think there's a conspiracy in it. However, it does feel strange if you don't take coffee in the morning, but I attribute that to habit rather than as an addiction. I could survive without coffee though, replaced it with hot choco or orange juice for a few weeks a while back due to some "health" concerns that was being pushed to me.
