9 Surprising Facts About Coffee Every Caffeine Addict Should Know.

We found this on Harpers Bazaar and thought we’d share it.

Most energy drinks don’t contain as much caffeine as a Starbucks coffee.

Don’t believe anyone who tells you those expensive energy drinks have more bang than a cup of coffee. A 16-ounce Monster has about 150 milligrams of caffeine — half the amount of caffeine in a standard Starbucks grandé-sized coffee.

It’s really easy to get low-key addicted to coffee.

As little as 100 milligrams of caffeine daily is enough to get an adult hooked. That’s basically two bags of Lipton tea or three cans of Coke. If you stop drinking coffee abruptly, you could experience withdrawal symptoms, including a lack of energy (obvs), irritability, headaches.

Coffee works crazy fast.

It only takes 10 minutes for caffeine to kick in after the first sip.

Coffee beans aren’t actually beans.

If we wanted to get technical, they’re actually the pit of a coffee fruit.

The first webcam EVER was invented because of coffee.

It might seem random, but when you hear the story, it’ll make so much sense. See, long ago, in 1991 at the University of Cambridge in England, people were sick of walking all the way to the coffee pot only to find that it was empty. So, they created a webcam that streamed the state of the coffee pot on a black and white 128×128 window that users could check before they got up to get a cup of coffee. So basically, you have coffee to thank for Skype and FaceTime.
