Caffeinated Post

I am a coffee lover. The caffeinated life gives me a rush. I believe some of the most of the interesting things start with a cup of coffee. For instance if someone wants to ask a girl out for the first time, coffee is the best option. It helps in surviving through the awkwardness of first date, or fighting stress during the blunder ones. If somebody is going through jitters of bad relationships, announcing breakups over a cup of coffee discharges the anxiety.

It has become life’s blood for many of us. It works wonders during long philosophical discussions, cracking deals with clients, calling for insomnia to study or work all night to meet deadlines and in those introspective moods, it boosts our creativity.


I am sharing here some interesting Facts about coffee that I gathered from various sites on internet:
1. Coffee beans are not beans in reality but are dried coffee berries that grow on vines.
2. Kopi Luwak is the world’s most expensive coffee worth $ 600 Approx. It’s beans are excreted by a Sumatran Wild Cat!
3. Caffeine is not good for spiders, it reduce their ability to spin their webs more than marijuana.
4. In America more than 300 million cups of coffee are consumed everyday.
5. During Sixteenth century Muslim rulers banned coffee because of its unusual stimulating effects.
6. Coffee is second most sold out commodity, first being oil.


7. During 1683, 1 Pound of coffee in New York was has worth equal to 4 acres of land.
8. Turkish bridegrooms were once required to make a promise during their wedding ceremonies to always provide their new wives with coffee. In case of they failed to do so, it was ground for divorce!
9. During low blood pressure, doctors’ also advice a cup of coffee to normalize our blood pressure
10. Bees also love caffeine, and it boosts their brains too.
I hope you have enjoyed your caffeine intake here :D

  1. I love coffee as well -- just the smell is enticing. I stopped drinking coffee many years ago when I realized some of the problems it can cause later in life but switched to decaf. Some people say - YUCK but there are some wonderful decaf coffees out there and even my husband can't tell the difference when I give him decaf HE HE!
