“All the coffee in Colombia won’t make me a morning person”

"All the coffee in Colombia won’t make me a morning person” is a jocular one-line coffee saying that has been printed on many images. “All the coffee in Columbia can’t make me a morning person” was posted on the newsgroup rec.games.chess.politics on March 6, 1996.

“There’s not enough coffee in the world...” and “(Not for) All the tea in China” are related sayings.


Wikipedia: Coffee production in Colombia
Coffee production in Colombia has a reputation as producing mild, well balanced coffee beans. Colombia’s average annual coffee production of 11.5 million bags is the third total highest in the world, after Brazil and Vietnam; though highest in terms of the arabica bean. The beans are exported to United States, Germany, France, Japan, and Italy. Most coffee is grown in the Colombian coffee growing axis region. In 2007, the European Union granted Colombian coffee a protected designation of origin status. In 2011 UNESCO declared the “Coffee Cultural Landscape” of Colombia, a World Heritage site.
