Turn on your Mr. Coffee, stick a K-cup in the Kuerig, or go visit your favorite local barista this weekend.
Saturday is National Coffee Day!
Did you know:
- Coffee didn’t make it’s way to America until after the Boston Tea Party?
- The first Starbucks opened in 1971?
- In its most basic, unprocessed form, coffee is a cherry-like fruit, which becomes red when ripe; the coffee bean is found at the center of the red coffee fruit?
Rumor has it, President Teddy Roosevelt consumed of a gallon of coffee per day.
According to a CBS News report, moderate coffee drinking has been linked to a decreased risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, as well as skin, colon and liver cancers.
