Caffeine affects the brain by blocking adenosine (a phytochemical that transmits pain signals to the brain) receptors; this slows down the nerve cell activity. When the caffeine molecule binds to the receptors of nerve cells, it causes the release of hormone epinephrine, resulting in increased heart rate, increased blood flow to the muscles, increased blood pressure, decreased blood flow to the skin, decreased blood flow to the inner organs, a release of glucose by the liver and increase in the levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain.
There is ongoing research in the positive role of coffee in the search for a cure for Parkinson & Alzheimer's disease.
It also seems that the risk of gallstones declines with caffeine intake.

Coffee also may have antidiabetic activity; studies have linked coffee drinking to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes - the type that is closely linked to obesity.
Used as a stimulant in narcotic poisoning to stop sleep.
In homeopathic doses, coffee is given for sleeplessness due to mental activity, tension, and anxiety.
It may be effective for preventing or delaying Parkinson's disease and reducing risk of colorectal cancer.
Caffeine is very similar to theophylline. This is a bronchodilator that opens up the airways in the lungs and as such relieves the symptoms of asthma such as (wheezing, coughing and breathlessness). Even small amounts of caffeine can improve lung function for hours.
Caffeine appears to improve airways function modestly.
Asthma is a lung disease in which the lungs are overly sensitive to a wide range of substances and vapors.
When caffeine is ingested through coffee it is processed by the liver and broken down into several chemicals (including theophylline).
Stimulant, diuretic, digestive, analgesic.
Significant reducing of post work-out pains; it also raises the pain threshold which is an advantage with works-outs.
The caffeine in coffee enhances the effects of common OTC (over the counter) painkillers such as aspirin.
