    apparently there is more to it

    As I've learned so far, "apprently" is "from what I've heard or seen" different from "obviously", but whenever I see translations for "apprently" by Koreans including this, it's almost always "obviously". Is there any chance, even a slight chance depending on context that apparently is same as obviously? I don't think so, it's just "seemingly", but I'm not hundred percent sure.

    ex)For many people, a cup of coffee in the morning is part of their daily routine. If they don't have it, the rest of their day feels incomplete. Obviously, part of what makes a cup of coffee so enjoyable is the coffee itself. But apparently there is more to it that that. In a study, researchers had people drink a cup of coffee in their favorite mug. Then they had them drink the same coffee from a different container. Despite the fact that there was no difference in the coffee itself, most people enjoyed it more when they drank it from their favorite mug....
