Balzac Coffee

One of “Germany’s Starbucks” is a coffee chain called, Balzac Coffee. It always struck me when I found out that people didn’t know Balzac was a famous author, but I had no better clue as to why someone honored him with in the name of their café. Today I stumbled upon the New Yorker’s daily shout to Balzac and now it all makes sense: Balzac was legendary in his coffee drinking habits, supposedly drinking up to fifty cups per day.
