Yes, I know there are people in the world who don’t like a good cup of java. I was one of them until I turned 20, needed a second job and worked as a barista for two years starting a lifelong addiction to everything caffeinated and brewed. Well, if I ever find myself in Finland, specifically Lapland, I know where to go to stay awake. The International Coffee Cup Museum is a wiser investment than those overpriced cafes. Why? Because you can see over 2,000 coffee cups from over 80 countries. The items were donated by companies and private individuals beginning in 1989 when the place first opened its doors. Did you know the first cafe in Sweden (of which Finland was still a part of at the time) opened way back in 1708? Suck on that, Starbucks! The Finns are one of the biggest coffee drinkers in the world, right after all college-aged students with Macbooks. As you admire all that fine china in display case after display case, don’t forget to check out the museum’s cafe. How can you go to a Coffee Cup Museum and not enjoy your own hot liquid beverage in a cup?
