Gus Comstock Day!

On this date in 1927, Gus Comstock of Fergus Falls, MN, consumed 85 cups of coffee in 6 hours to set the world record for most coffee consumed.  And it didn’t kill him.

I’m proud to say that I was born and raised in Fergus Falls, MN, and maybe there’s something to our coffee-drinking tradition (both as Minnesotans and Scandinavians) that led me into this industry.  So today, I salute Mr. Comstock and his world record by drinking coffee.  Two cups, even.

  1. I love this story about Gus Comstock, and also love the Gus Comstock coffee, roasted and bagged and available from Stumbeano’s Coffee, not far from the Kaddatz Hotel (now a great art gallery), site of Gus’ feat. A day to celebrate good coffee and those who provide it for the rest of us.
