While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Get your coffee buzz going - September 29 is National Coffee Day!
It's the drink that gets you going and the lifeblood of fine hard-working folks all over the world. It even inspired Johan Sebastian Bach to write "Coffee Cantata" about caffeine dependence - now that's some serious java love!
Sufi Baba Budan supposedly smuggled coffee beans from Yemen to India in 1670 by strapping them to his chest. Soon, coffee spread to Italy, all of Europe, Indonesia and the Americas. So the next time you take a sip, give Sufi a little fist pump.
No matter how you get your coffee fix today, here's to hoping you don't suffer from the mother-of-all caffeine headaches.
