At Blog World Expo, on October 15, 2010, in Las Vegas, NV, GourmetGiftBaskets.com decided to go for the World Record Cup of Coffee. What did it require to make that much coffee? They needed two 60 Amp 208 Volt Three Phase power supplies, two directly plumbed water lines providing 3 gallons per minute and the equivalent of 89,305 times the amount of coffee needed to brew your standard 8oz cup of coffee.

Since the year is 2010, GourmetGiftBaskets.com decided to brew 2,010 gallons of fresh coffee. Jitter Jitter This coffee went into an 8x8 foot specially constructed coffee mug. They blew the old record of 911.5 gallons out of the proverbial coffee pot. Brewing started at 4 a.m. took 4-5 hours to brew at a rate of 250 gallons per hour.

Did you know that Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee per day, or equivalent to 146 Billion cups of coffee per year? Jitter GourmetGiftBaskets.com president and CEO, Ryan Abood said, "Coffee is a product consumers can relate to. We wake up craving a cup, and when it's gone, we almost always go for more. I wanted to create a cup of coffee that many of us only dream about in our most tired of states!" Jitter I know I'd love to have a cup of coffee that large some days! How about you? Of course, you know the crash you get a few hours after drinking coffee? The crash after this cup would be dreadful!

I don't want to be a downer but I really hope they recycled that in some way. Using that magnitude of water seems such a waste when there are water shortages and contaminated water sources all over the world.
