You may have noticed that I recently expanded the DMR statistic post collection beyond just digital and have explored some of the critical topics facing society today: LEGO, bacon, etc. I enjoy researching these posts and, judging by the numbers, you enjoy reading them, so why stop there?
Tonight's post is about another topic I hold near and dear: coffee.
When you work a full-time+ day job, write books occasionally, run content-heavy sites like DMR and DisneyNews and try to keep up with a 7-year-old, you tend to rely pretty heavily on coffee (and the occasional Red Bull or two). It is definitely not a stretch to say that DMR is fueled by coffee.
Here are 10 of the most interesting coffee facts I have come across in my travels. Hope you enjoy!
