Let's Go For a Swim...in Coffee!


Now you may think you are a huge coffee drinker and you might order the Grand Latte every morning.  But even you, the avid coffee drinker, has never seen a coffee mug this BIG!


The coffee loving folks at GourmetGiftBaskets.com have just earned the Guinness World Record for filling a coffee mug with 2,010 gallons of coffee!!!!  Now they probably don't carry this size at your local coffee shop, but if you wanted the equivalent, just order 32,160 cups.    The previous record, set in 2007, was for 911.5 gallons of coffee in a single cup.   Even by combining these two records, the yearly intake of coffee by Americans has them beat.   Can you believe that the  American public, on average, consumes 146 Billion cups of coffee every year! 

This highly caffeinated Guinness event took place at the  Blog World Expo on October 15 under the supervision of GourmetGiftBaskets.com's CEO, Ryan Abood.   The brewing began at 4am and continued with an average of 250 gallons per hour.  Abood and his GourmetGiftBaskets.com family not only broke the Guinness Record, but they also raised money to benefit breast cancer awareness and the Susan G. Komen's Passionately Pink for the Cure.  Through donations from samplings of the coffee and pictures with the HUGE mug, GourmetGiftBaskets.com was able to make a difference for breast cancer awareness.
