Last week I was standing in line at McAlisters Deli waiting to order, when I noticed three police officers standing in the line next to me. I couldn’t help but listen to their conversation.

Over half adults in the United States drink coffee - 3 cups per day totaling a whopping 336 million cups if you total it all up (give or take).

There are studies for and against coffee consumption -- like anything if consumed in moderation you're "good to go." Tyler is hooked up with places to find your perfect cup of Joe. Walking into a "Coffee Shop" is like finding a refuge from the pressure of the day. I pull out my iPad or laptop and sip my "mild drug" of choice.
