The world's top 10 consumers of coffee per capita per year, as of 2003:

1. Finland: 11.4 kg
2. Aruba: 9.2 kg
3. Iceland: 9.1 kg
4. Norway: 9 kg
5. Denmark: 8.1 kg
6. Sweden: 7.9 kg
7. Bermuda: 7.5 kg
8. Switzerland: 7.4 kg
9. Netherlands: 6.8 kg
10. Germany: 6.6 kg

The average American consumes only 4.2 kilograms — more than 9 pounds — of coffee each year.

To help improve those numbers, I've found a few items and links.

Jen, I'm reasonably certain that 8 pounds of that coffee is split between the two of us.

I'm actually going to ditch coffee for a couple of weeks (Medical reasons). You may want to start a "Save Jim's Cat" campaign if my last caffiene fast is anything to judge by.

Hmm. Since I buy at least a pound of coffee every two weeks, I consume at least 25 pounds a year and probably more like 30.

So I'm offsetting two Mormons...

Jen, I'd have expected you to be at least in the top 10.
