    speaking of frappuccino from starbucks, there was a carppuccino which was a modified version of 1988 VW Scirocco which was powered by coffee. that car set a world record by driving 200 miles with coffee powered.

    do you know who or what is bigger than Starbucks in India?

    that would be V.G. Siddhartha who owns the biggest coffee chain, Cafe Coffee Day, in India. bigger and richer and more influential than Starbucks in India.

    It seems like he has committed suicide (about two month ago...sorry for pony express news..) by throwing himself int a river. his family goes back 130 years in coffee industry and his company employees more than 30,000 people in Asia and Europe.

    Apparently he was getting stressed out by India IRS investigation and losing financial side of things.... so rather than drinking 95 cups of his own coffee to kill himself (he is about 195 pounds), he went with something rather quick.....

    what do you think of people who tends to kill themselves when adversity and problem hit their lives....

    This stupid thing happened last feb.. ha ha ha

    A passenger airplane with 337 on board was forced to diver to other nearby airport when the pilot spilled coffee on the control panel and ACP (audio control panels) started smoking....

    which aircraft? it was airbus A330-243 from Frankfurt to Cancun, Mexico. and it landed in Shannon, Ireland.

    THAT was one strong coffee, I must say.... or some terrorist mixed acid into that pilot's coffee?
    I don't know, but it just sounds so stupid...

    Organic beans get $0.25 over coffee C pricing. (or normal commercial bean trading price to farmers)
    but if you use organic fertilizers for your coffee producing, your yield will be between 25% to 35% less than not being organic.

    does anyone know why the farmers do organic when they know that they will be losing money being organic?
