P.E.P for the Week-5 Things You Didn’t Know About Coffee Edition

Welcome to the new PEP of the week. Each week a different theme will be used to give you all some extra added entertainment and reading. Also, the number of links will be changing. Only the top 10 posts of the week will be part of the edition. This will not only make it easier for me to post them but also contain the amount of reading you need to get through.

Before I post the PEP of the week, I just wanted to let you know that the Voting Contest is now closed. Surprisingly I didn’t receive even 1 entry. I guess you (my readers) aren’t into entering contests. I might try again in a  month or two.

Well, without further adieu, here is the PEP of the week- 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Coffee Edition.
