    Many of forum members know that I do some stupid and crazy stuff with coffee.
    just now, about 30 min ago, I bought a cup of goat milk from my favorite goat milk boy ($0.75 per cup). it is like my weekend ritual because I see these 3 goats (one is named after Shakira. (brown one) and middle black one name is Rata (rat in Spanish, kind of funny) and the other goat.. I forgot the name.)

    So, I got a cup of SUPER DUPER FRESH goat milk and took it to right next door my favorite coffee shop. &Cafe (yes, that is the name of the coffee shop. &Cafe. Second largest coffee chain store in Guatemala). I know them so well because I have been coming here for years and everyone knows that I am in coffee business in this town. (well, I am THE ONLY KOREAN (ASIAN) GUY doing coffee business in this city, Quetzaltenango). So, they always remember me and always very nice to me. So, I gave that goat milk to Estefania to make my usual Latte.

    Gladly, she did! (#2 photo) and as I write, I am drinking that Goat milk Latte. Honestly?! One of the best lattes that I have ever had!!!! (photo #5. In case you might be thinking that I am bullshxting, I took a photo of the latte cup with my facebook picture on my computer)

    PS: the goat boy (Fernando is the name) told me that one goat can give about 18 cups a day! interesting stuff.

    "Redbull gives you wings, coffee gives you rockets!"

    Heard it on this song called "Confessions of a Coffee Addict" by Kevin Blue on YouTube. The song hilarious and a really puts coffee on another level!

    I got below from Coffee Fun Facts from a website call "Coffee Know How".

    Coffee isn't only for leisurely drinking or better yet it's not only for drinking. I found some interesting facts about coffee below.


    • Drinking at least two cups of coffee daily can lower your risk of heart disease by 25%.4
    • Coffee can be used topically to simulate hair growth5
    • It can also be poured cold over your hair for a soft shinier look6
    • All coffee grow in the world grows in the "bean belt", the area between the tropics of cancer & capricorn.8


    I am curious to know about the "hair growth" thing. Topically to stimulate? Pour cold coffee over your hair for shinier look?
    Really? DOES ANYONE HAS SOME EXPERIENCES IN THIS?

    I guess that according to below photos, most of Bald famous man are action starts!!! (except #1 photo that we all must avoid Look!)

    yes, we all know about Luwak coffee. the most expensive coffee in the world... (perhaps after Black Ivory Coffee in Thailand, but BIC isn't so much popular around the world, not like Luwak).

    But the question is "is Luwak coffee Halal?"

    the answer (if anyone really cares... ha ha ha) is YES. However, you have to WASH THE COFFEE BEANS before roasting and grinding. that is the rule to be consumed as halal coffee. if you ask me, bit strange rule ... (But looking at the photo, who wouldn't want to wash it thoroughly, right LOL)

    I don't think you could get that clean enough for me. Reminds me of Bill Murray in Caddy Shack.

    Nowadays, there are gazillion of coffee advertisement EVERYWHERE!!!!

    Didn't you ever wonder when was the very first coffee advertisement published?
    Probably you didn't, but I wondered.... so I checked it out!

    it was a handbill distributed in 1651. It said : The virtue of the coffee drink first publicly made and sold in England, by Pasque Rosee....etc.

    Yep. below is the actual copy of the advertisement. As you have guessed, it is now in the British Museum.

    To me, that was bit interesting fact about coffee.

    BTW, the very first coffee house in England was opened by Mr. Jacobs in 1650 (in Oxford).

    Then, TWO YEARS LATER ON, another coffee house was opened in London by Pasqua Rosee (yes, the same guy who advertised COFFEE, first time EVER) with his partner, Daniel Edwards.

    Fast forward 50 more years..... By 1700, 2000 coffee shops were opened around the world.

    I have always known that Coffee plant needs a lot of water. But I did not know exactly how much water it needed until I checked it out.

    according to data, the world population uses 32 trillion gallons of water per year for coffee which is 2% of global water use for crop production. 32 trillion gallons!!!!

    also, coffee is top 3 crop that uses most water.
    #1 Chocolate : in order to make 1 oz of chocolate, it needs 198 gallons!!!! that is truly amazing.
    #2 wine : 6 oz serving. 47.6 gallon
    #3 Coffee : one cup of coffee. 37 gallons of water.

    it is very disconcerting and interesting to know that coffee companies such as Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts sometimes use "fake coffee smell" to attract customers.

    it is called "ScentAir" is a go-to choice in the coffee industry as well as retail stores.

    Super market brand like Nescafe also injects coffee aroma into the container to seem more fresh when first opening.

    By the way, I got this info from "huffington Post", so if Starbucks, DD or Nescafe want to send me any legal team letters...etc, please forward that claim to Huffington Post. LOL
