According to a Turkish proverb, coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and sweet as love. 
It’s National Coffee Day, and to celebrate we took a dip into the NPR archives and found this great report tracing the history of the coffee break, courtesy of Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg.
Enjoy!
