Greetings Infomaniacs,

Raise your hand if you like coffee! I'm a big fan, especially now that we have a Keurig. It's easy to get out of control with that thing, but I limit myself to one (well, sometimes two) a day. In honor of this delicious caffeinated beverage, I have an issue full of coffee facts for you!

Enjoy!
