A new report in CNN claims there's one simple key to making your coffee that will lead to greater longevity.

The American Heart Association and the British Medical Journal agree: coffee has some real benefits to your health. But, you've got to brew it the right way to get those results. A new 20-year-long study from Sweden found that coffee is good for your health and can even help you live longer, but only if you brew it with a filter.

The research from Sweden showed that filtered coffee is linked to a 12%-20% lower risk of death from heart disease.
