According to The Seattle Times, coffee really is addictive. In other words: no news today. ;-)

What is really funny is they find that an average american drinks 3.4 cups of coffee a day. Now, how much is a cup? Is a cup the same amount of coffee as an espresso shot? My cup of coffee is typically three espressos that fit nicely in a cup. There’s even room for hot water, hot cream, cinamon, liquer, whatever you desire for your coffee (yes, cookies and chocolate too). Is this regarded as a cup? An americano is typically an espresso with buckets of warm water, producing the worlds probably thinnes coffee. Do americans drink americano’s? (looks like they do in Friends, but then again how american are the Friends characters? ;-) )
