FREAKY FACTS... What's the buzz?

1) A cup of coffee and a dose of daily exercise may prevent skin cancers, according to a new study by American scientists.
2) Research shows coffee may help manage asthma and even control attacks when medication is unavailable, halt a headache, boost moods and even prevent dental cavities.
3) Coffee is best grown at high altitudes, between 800 and 2000 metres above sea level, in hot countries, between Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.
4) Cafes in Italy, New Zealand and Australia sell expressly espresso. That means they are only countries in the world to have 100% espresso-based café markets.
5) New Zealand is the land of the long white coffee. Together with Australia, it serves 98% of espresso-made drinks with milk. Italy serves just 5% of its coffee with milk.
