This is excellent! I posted it widely. The arguments you present are sound and believable. Occams razor explains why global coffee consumption is about 1.4 billion cups a day worldwide according to the International Coffee Organization. About 45% of it is drunk in America. The Scandinavian countries top the “fine art” of coffee drinking chart despite the fact that coffee prices have risen. Clearly, a habit a preponderance of humans engage in to start their day and pick them up midday must be grounded in psychological, physiological and economic benefits!
