Hooray to coffee!
Did you know:
The Guinness-recognized oldest cat ever Creme Puff, who lived to be 38 years old, drank coffee every day. His he owner, Jake Perry, supported his cat's caffeine adiction, mostly because he was also the owner of the previous record holder, Grandpa Rex Allen. He was a coffe drinker as well and died at 34!
The northernmost land mass on Earth is called Coffee Club Island, or "Kaffeklubben Island" in Danish. This small island lying off the northern tip of Greenland and it's a part of Denmark. It was named after an informal "coffee club" of geographers that met regularly at the University of Copenhagen.
Originally coffee was not a beverage, but sort of an energy bar. Arabian tribes used to mix coffee berries with fat and form little energy balls.
Coffee is the second most traded commodity on Earth. The first one is oil. It's also is the second most popular drink on Earth after water.
It would take between 80 and 100 cups of coffee for a lethal dose of caffeine for an average adult. If you think it's a lot, you would like to now that legend has it that Voltaire drunk 50 cups of coffee per day, that daredevil. So, drink up!
