The hint to answering the question I posted yesterday was actually in the blog entry title: “What powers technology?” The answer is: people flocked to the coffee pot after the long meeting. Yesterday, I overhead one of our coffee drinkers said jokingly, “I don’t think technology will have advanced without coffee. Modern technology is powered by caffeine.”
Did you know that coffee beans is the second most imported item by U.S. (after oil)? It’s also the third most traded commodity in the whole world.
Don’t underestimate the power of coffee.
