** So was NeilYoung until Starbucks became involved in a lawsuit to stop a Vermont law that requires GMO foods to be labeled. [[http://neilyoung.com/?frontpage=true He says he'll forego his morning latte]] until they come clean about their involvement. He even wrote a song about it: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC2DpGaykaI A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop]]".

* [[GoodEats Alton Brown]] is a self-described coffee aficionado (among other things), dedicated at at least two entire shows to it (one for coffee, one for espresso). People have often commented on the very large ''amount'' of coffee he uses just for a standard cup. Alton argues that the more coffee you use the less bitter the brew is.

Added DiffLines:

* Probably the most serious political crisis in the GDR after the 1953 revolts and before the events that led to its fall was related to coffee. [[https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaffeekrise_in_der_DDR that other wiki]] has an article on it (in German). Basically, the GDR ran out of hard currency to buy coffee at a time when the world market prices hit a new high. As Saxony (than as now the culturally dominant region of East Germany) was renowned for its "coffee culture" centuries before the GDR rolled around, this became SeriousBusiness. On no other topic did the GDR government ever get so many letters of complaint. And we are talking about a regime that most of the time had a shortage of decent housing. Eventually the GDR resolved the problem by helping Vietnam (which up to that point had no coffee culture or cultivation whatsoever) become the second largest coffee producer in the world.

* In Turkey, people like coffee strong. So much so that in the Balkans, "Turkish coffee" has become a nickname for extremely strong coffee. Indeed, "Turkish Coffee" is a staple at Balkan or Mediterranean cafes and restaurants elsewhere as well. It's typically brewed by boiling the grounds for 5-10 minutes.
