Entry 3 // Coffee

It’s the reason for getting out of bed. The velvety texture, luscious flavor & caffeine. It makes water taste better. It’s the reason water was invented…

Actually, coffee was discovered in 850 when goats were observed to be eating coffee fruit and got a boost of energy after. So humans decided to try it. Now, I don’t know if goats still get to eat the fruit… Sorry goats.

Coffee has since been traded all over the world, it’s in soldier meal kits, and it’s even in space. Astronaut Don Pettit, a chemical engineer, wanted to drink coffee in low-gravity without using a pouch and straw so he invented a Zero-G coffee cup.

It looks like this

The Zero-G coffee cup. This is what astronauts on ISS use to drink espresso.

Coffee is like the rocket fuel for humans.

So we made a 1-G mug that can be used here, on the ‘ground’.

What’s your favorite type of coffee?
