Making A Tiny Cup Of Coffee With A Single Bean

April 26, 2017


This is a video from Finnish coffee roasters Paulig of somebody making a teensy tiny cup of coffee using a single Kenya AA+ Karindum coffee bean. not nearly enough coffee for a person. I've already had four cups and it's not even 9AM. I've got the feeling it's gonna be one of those 'double espresso enemas before lunch' kinda days. "That is not a kind of day." Well it is to me. Now, I want you to squeeze this bag like you're trying to pop a balloon when I give you the signal.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Dougie, who agrees the first coffee chain to start offering cold brew IVs is going to make a killing. Or kill a bunch of people, it's hard to say.

    All of the work. None of the benefit.

    Hamster waiting for coffee to brew all like https://s-media-cache-ak0.p...

    It would take 1000 cups of coffee to kill an average adult moose with the caffeine. For a hamster, I have to assume this amount is drastically smaller.

    According to https://www.caffeineinforme... a lethal dose for 1 lb of body weight (they only do whole numbers, not fractions) is 0.4 cups of brewed coffee...

    A hamster averages about 0.05 lbs, so (0.05)x(0.4) = 0.02 cups of coffee to kill a hamster.

    In other words, with 1000 cups of coffee you could either kill one average adult moose, or 50,000 hamsters.

    Also, according to that same calculator, it would actually only take about 419 cups to kill an average adult moose (1,000 lb), so 1,000 cups might be overkill... With 419 cups, you could only kill 20,945 hamsters.
