Caffeine Trivia 02.22.14

Did you know?

Wine and lemonade merchants in Italy in the 1600s called coffee “Satan’s drink” due to its threat to their markets.  These merchants asked the Pope to issue an edict condemning coffee.  However, their plan backfired when Pope Clement VII tasted coffee, liked it, and baptized it to make it a Christian drink.
