Kobayashi Coffee

Those that follow the competitive eating circuit know that Takeru Kobayashi is a serious contender when it comes to eating large amounts of food in short periods of time. (This is despite his various kerfuffles with the Major League Eating organization).

His newest stunt, in partnership with Eight O'Clock Coffee and comedian Jim Breuer, is right up there with some of his other epic food accomplishments such as eating 337 wings or eating a ton of hot dogs in 10 minutes. In the clip below, he drinks FORTY TWO cups of coffee in just a couple of minutes. The clip feels a little orchestrated, and is clearly meant as PR for Eight O'Clock Coffee, but Kobayashi still manages to pull off yet another crazy feat.

Kobayashi shows no signs of being full, or being overly caffeinated for that matter. We just can't help but wonder what happened after they turned the camera off...

Sixteen years ago Mary Allen Lindemann and Alan Spear opened this tiny coffee shop in Portland, Maine with the idea of building a place for the community. Over the years, the shop has grown from their original Congress Street location to three other shops and a micro roaster where they process all their beans. But despite their mini-expansion, the independent store remains homey and popular for Mainers as they continue to serve the community one cup of Fore Street coffee at a time.
