Ah, Sunday morning. The Internet Cafe is quiet. And here I
am sipping a remarkably tasty cup of Joe. And it just turns out that as I am doing so, I happen across this great
little interactive on coffee
(and caffeinated beverages, as there are lots of shots of gleaming Red Bull cans). Brought to us by the kind folks at
National Geo who actually took the time to understand and explain where coffee comes from (mostly Asia and Latin
America), how its made, how its popularity has grown, etc., the damn well done
little Flash piece will help
stimulate your mind, if that cup of coffee in your hand hasn’t already done so.
And btw: I was reminded of this hilarious piece in McSweeneys on the
virtues of this magical elixir.
