Thanks to a recent study, meeting for coffee can actually help you weed out the crazies from the potentials. So the next time you’re wondering if your date has any long term potential, pay attention to the coffee drink that they order.

World's most expensive coffee: Kopi Luwak
Fun facts about coffee!
Did you know...
- Kopi Luwak is considered to be the rarest and most expensive in the world! It is grown in Indonesia. The Asian palm civet (looks like a weasel-like animal), eats berries for their fleshy pulp. As the beans are digested, internal digestive tract adds a unique milder flavor to the beans. They are excreted intact from the animal’s feces, gathered, washed, dried and roasted. It costs about $50 per cup!
- Coffee grows on trees, up to 30 feet tall! The coffee bean is a seed inside of a red berry. The berries are picked, dried, and stripped down to a green-colored bean. The beans are roasted at 500 F until they start to “pop” and double in size like popcorn. Light roast coffee has MORE caffeine since the longer coffee is roasted the more caffeine is cooked out of the bean.
- Seattle has the most number of coffee shops per capital in the U.S. (35 per 100,000). Hawaii is the only U.S. state that grows coffee. It is also grown in Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory.
- Americans drink 400 million cups of coffee/day, making the U.S. the leading consumer of coffee in the world.
- Japanese people bathe in coffee grounds fermented with pineapple pulp to improve their skin and reduce wrinkles.
