Famous Geniuses and Coffee Addiction
I love coffee. I really mean it and I want to share this super interesting article. Maybe you love coffee as much as I do? ;) source
1. Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a short opera about coffee obsession.
The famed Baroque composer and pianist was also a notable coffee fiend. Though he's not well regarded for his humor, he turned an amusing poem by his frequent collaborator, Picander, into The Coffee Cantata in 1732. The cantata mocked public outcry about the rise of the Vienna coffeehouse scene. At the time, coffee was regarded as a dangerous societal "vice."
2. Ludwig Van Beethoven took his coffee with exactly 60 beans per cup.

3. Benjamin Franklin hung out at coffee shops before it was cliche.
