You can hear the gurgle of gentle percolation, the smell of roasted beans wafting from that sunny kitchen corner. You hold the mug with both hands, feel the heat of your freshly brewed java, and take a sip. Warmth fills your groggy soul.
Well, on Earth, anyway.
Data from the National Coffee Association shows that coffee consumption in the United States was about three cups per day last year, while countries like Finland and Norway continuously surpass even that. We Earthlings love coffee! And no matter how and when we like to consume our coffee, there’s one thing we can all be thankful for on this upcoming National Coffee Day: gravity. Because drinking coffee in outer space? That’s no ordinary feat.
