Some stuffs you need to know about Coffee...

Did you know? At one point, coffee house was allegedly a terrorist domain once upon a paranoid time. In 1675, the King of England banned coffee houses, claiming they were places where people met to conspire against him.



And I bet you didn't know this: George Washington invented instant coffee!
No no, not George Washington, The President...

"NO, I DIDN'T. READ BELOW FOOLS."
... But a Belgian man living in Guatemala by the name of George Washington Carver invented it in 1906. He was quite the famous scientist in his days, experimenting with plants and crops. 
"OII! I INVENTED IT! DAMN SHADOWS!"
  
And do you know what you drink when you order Espresso?
Espresso is not a particular type of bean, roast, or blend. It is in fact just a way that coffee is prepared: shooting pressurized, hot water through finely ground coffee. It is normally served with nothing else - for the hardcore coffee lover.

That's all for today folks! I crave an Espresso suddenly...

Have a blast on Monday!!
