August 3, 2008: Instant Record

Make that instant coffee record.

Quote:
A new Guinness World Record has been set for the largest coffee cup by Vinacafe Bien Hoa, the biggest coffee producer in Vietnam, with the aim of the record to promote Vietnamese coffee worldwide.

The stainless steel structure was constructed by more than 100 people and is 5.02 feet tall, with a diameter of 7.644 feet.

Weighing in at 2,639 lbs, the cup contained 952 gallons of coffee, made with 1,766 lbs of instant coffee powder, and 1,057 gallons of boiled water.
I don't know how they got 952 gallons of coffee from 1,057 gallons of water... unless 105 gallons is the Central Committee's cut.



Why go to all that trouble and expense just to end up with a cup of instant?

So they're the ones putting Starbucks out of business?



DanaC  Sunday Aug 3 09:15 AM

Only in Giantland.

I wish they would have put something in the picture for a point of reference on the size. Other than wilting flowers.

Just a small amount of spillage from the enormous kettle they poured it out of, I'll bet.


spudcon  Sunday Aug 3 01:12 PM

Starbucks is going out of business because the kerosene they use to make their coffee is too expensive.



Sheldonrs  Sunday Aug 3 02:56 PM

Do they offer free refills?



JuancoRocks  Sunday Aug 3 10:56 PM

Vinacafe Bien Hoa.....

The Vietnamese actually grow and make a good cup of coffee.......One that will keep you up all night cleaning....Kind of like mild speed coffee....

Just say no to instant.....

Cool. I love good coffee and refuse to drink cheap ass-taste coffee anymore. I would love to get some of that.

Actually I would guess it would be a combination of some spillage but mostly just loss of water due to it boiling off. It must take a while to boil 1,057 gallons and I would guess a lot of that was lost to water vapor.


TheMercenary  Monday Aug 4 12:28 PM

I want to know how long it took them to drink it.



Flint  Monday Aug 4 12:36 PM

I got an iced coffee at McDonalds. It was really good.

hehe I thought it was only me! Like there was something wrong with my taste buds.

There is this tiny mall and next to the Starbucks is Great Harvest Bread company. They give out fresh baked bread slices and for a buck fifty you get the best cup of coffee. It's Peet's and it is way more superior to Starbucks. I feel so pleased with my self as I pass those $5 Starbuck drinkers.


Gravdigr  Monday Aug 4 09:50 PM

I tried to get into the habit of drinking coffee. I mean I really tried to become a 'coffee drinker'. Store-bought, restaurants, home brewed, instant, the whole schmeer. It still tastes like pissy-battery acid to me.:p



Aliantha  Monday Aug 4 10:37 PM

Apparently starbucks thought they wouldn't have any competition in Australia. Unfortunately for the management, all the capital cities and many of the regional areas have a thriving cafe society so not only are there quite a few large chain and franchise stores, there are hundreds and hundreds of cafes and small restaraunts that sell better coffee than you'll get at any starbucks (IMO), and far cheaper too.



TheMercenary  Tuesday Aug 5 01:24 AM

Not hard to believe that.



SPUCK  Tuesday Aug 5 04:30 AM

You and me both Gravdigr.. Y u c k.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Aug 5 12:17 PM

Me three.



HungLikeJesus  Tuesday Aug 5 12:20 PM

I can't tell the difference between the smell of coffee and the smell of a skunk.

Seriously.



SPUCK  Tuesday Aug 5 10:25 PM

WOW! I'm normally lambasted for not thinking coffee is a requirement for a normal life.

Interesting Hung. I actually love the smell of fresh brewed coffee just don't make me taste it. Now don't tell me you have NO sense of smell?

My brother-in-law has no sense of smell. He met me a tool store and the proprietor asked him if he smelled a skunk. Turns out my BIL's dog just got blasted and he didn't know he'd gotten any on his coat. Couldn't smell it.



spudcon  Tuesday Aug 5 11:11 PM

Good coffee doesn't smell like skunk. Bad coffee does.
