The truth about coffee is that it's enjoyed all over the world, a fact illuminated by this coffee infographic by Evoke. In fact, 2.25 billion cups of coffee are downed daily, all over the globe.

With such a high consumption rate, it's important to be aware of the relationship caffeine has with our body. For instance, did you know that caffeine affects the same part of the brain that amphetamines do, but with milder effects? They're not kidding when they say coffee will get you wired! That being said, you'd still have to drink a whole lot of it for it to kill you. The lethal dose measures out to 100 cups of coffee in four hours -- don't try this at home.

The infographic goes on to list calorie information (that caramel frappuccino will set you back 430 calories), compare coffee chains and offers expert opinions on coffee addiction.
