In honor of National Coffee Day, here are a few facts about coffee.

  1. Water is the most important ingredient. Bad water equals bad coffee.
  2. The darker the roast the less caffeine. The bitter taste does not indicate the caffeine content.
  3. Making a great cup of coffee is cheap. All you need is hot water, beans and a cup. Fancy machines don’t increase the flavor, only convenience.
  4. Coffee is the second largest traded commodity, second only to crude oil.

Now go drink a cup, or two.
