Finland is the world leader in coffee consumption. It's something like an average of nine cups per day per person. Which is a lot, considering that many people don't drink coffee at all. Finland must be full of caffeine addicts.

This mania of coffee drinking can be seen in various places. Today, I went shopping for groceries. Coffee was on sale - half a kilo packet of quality coffee was only 1,69 euros. Because of this amazingly cheap price (perhaps 50 cents less than usually), there was a sign that said "Only for households. No more than 10 packets/household."

And I was thinking about buying 11 packets! Darn. Then I just went on with my shopping, buying exactly one packet of different kind of coffee which cost me exactly two euros.
