National Coffee Day is on September 29th! Though for some of y’all every day is National Coffee day. And boy do we love coffee here in San Saba, TX!

8 FACTS ABOUT COFFEE TO PERCOLATE ON…

 

1) CATS WHO DRINK COFFEE LIVE A LATTE LONGER!

Funny cat crawled into a white coffee mug.

Creme Puff, the oldest cat in the world according to Guinness World Records, drank coffee every morning along with a full breakfast of eggs, bacon, and, for some reason, broccoli. Grandpa Rex Allen, her brother and former reigning record holder for oldest cat, lived to 34 feasting on the same breakfast menu.

2) THE AVERAGE AMERICAN DROPS AROUND 1 THOUSAND DOLLARS ON COFFEE PER YEAR! THAT’S UN-BEAN-LIEVABLE!

With a Starbucks on every corner it’s no wonder we love our coffee so much. However, we still don’t hold the #1 most caffeinated country spot.

3) THEY DRINK 6.7 TIMES MORE COFFEE IN NEW YORK THAN ANY OTHER CITY IN AMERICA!

4) THE COFFEE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD IS FINLAND.

Finland may drink all the coffee but they don’t actually produce any of their own beans. No wonder Finnish people are so perky!

5) BEETHOVEN WAS A COFFEE SNOB!

The brilliant but troubled genius toiled over his coffee preparations almost as much as his symphonies. Apparently he liked his coffee made with exactly 60 beans.

6) PEOPLE WILL PAY TONS OF CASH FOR COFFEE MADE FROM POOP!

The most expensive coffee in the world is Kopi Luwak, made from the droppings of the Asian Palm Civet, which loves to nibble on coffee cherries. The beans, after passing through the digestive system, are sold for a wapping $600 a pound!

7) IN ITALY, ESPRESSO CONSUMPTION IS OVERSEEN BY THE GOVERNMENT.
