The report finds deaths are no higher in coffee lovers with heart disease.
This adds to a mixed bag of research on whether caffeinated coffee is a hazard for those with heart issues.
The new study followed 12,000 nurses with a history of heart disease or stroke. Those who had a few cups of coffee a day were no more likely to die than the non-coffee drinkers.
Other studies have found the same results, and a few others have even hinted at protective effects of coffee.
