National Coffee Day on Facebook




The largest coffee fan page on Facebook has over half a million likes. Nespresso, our personal favorite brand, comes close to half a million. And Starbucks, probably the most popular coffee shop in the world, even has over 14 million! Yes, many of us Facebookers enjoy a damn fine cup of coffee every now and then, but did you know we have a dancing goat to thank for the discovery of the beverage? Ethiopian farmers noticed their goats all hyped up after eating cocoa beans and one thing let to another. For a long time, people ate the “energy beans” until somebody figured out how to brew it. The beverage got its “a cup of Joe” nickname because it was a popular drink among World War II soldiers (called “Joes”) and the Americano preperation was named after the American soldiers who would order their espresso with water to reduce the drink’s bitterness.

Why are we telling you all this? Because it’s National Coffee Day in the U.S., that’s why. You have RSVP’d for National Coffee Day on Facebook already, have you? Ok, then let’s go through some coffee-related Facebook stuff. For instance, what do you get when you mash up Starbucks and Facebook? Yes, Facebucks:

(Un)fortunately, Facebucks coffee doesn’t really exist. But these Facebook coffee mugs do, and they’re available for sale!
