Caffeine, Glorious Caffeine!

Win a Starbucks Gift Card

Singing the praises of caffeine today in the UBU office, as we burn the candle at both ends (and sometimes in the middle) while we get caught up on projects. We are making great progress … and thought we’d share some useless caffeine trivia and host a giveaway!

  • Caffeine can be found in over 60 different plants.
  • Ninety percent of Americans consume it in some form every day.
  • Over 450,000,000 cups of coffee are consumed in the USA every day!
  • Caffeine is naturally very bitter; so many caffeinated beverages use a “buffering agent” to hide the natural bitterness.

Enjoy some caffeine of your own (I prefer the chocolate version!) courtesy of the UBU team. Enter to win a $20 Starbucks Gift Card.
