can't do an hour without coffee

Hello my name is Karin and I am a coffee-holic.  I have been a coffee-holic forever. See these fun facts:

If you like your espresso coffee sweet, you should use granulated sugar, which dissolves more quickly, rather than sugar cubes; white sugar rather than brown sugar or candy; and real sugar rather than sweeteners which alter the taste of the coffee.

"Cowboy coffee"? It was said they made their coffee by putting ground coffee into a clean sock and immersing it in cold water and heating over a campfire. When ready, they would pour the coffee into tin cups and drink it. 

It takes approximately 42 coffee beans to make an average serving of espresso.

Turkish bridegrooms were once required to make a promise during their wedding ceremonies to always provide their new wives with coffee. If they failed to do so, it was grounds for divorce! (Ouch!)

Espresso has 1/3 of the caffeine of a regular cup of coffee.

In Greece and Turkey, it is the custom that the eldest is served coffee first 

Beethoven who was a coffee lover, was so particular about his coffee that he always counted 60 beans each cup when he prepared his brew.

 Cappuccino has become the popular choice of exotic coffee lovers everywhere.

Coffee is the second largest commodity in world trade, right after oil.

And in closing I just love this one 

Decaffeinated coffee is kind of like kissing your sister.
