Reasons You Should Drink Coffee-

We ran out of coffee today so tonight after dinner we walked to the gift shop at the restaruant next door to buy some more. David likes to buy different kinds of coffee from time to time to try it out. Tonight he bought two different brands. One bag- Tres Generaciones (Three Generations) has listed on the back and tranlated in English benefits of drinking coffee. I am going to type it for you word for word in their translation. Don't think my spelling has gone haywire. We have laughed sooo hard reading this. It has cracked us up!

BENEFITS OF THE COFFEE FOR YOUR HEALTH:
-Prevents Cancer. In the research Cancer Center AMC, from Denver, Colorado is designing a way to toast coffee so the grains may preserve the polyphenols containing antioxidants which contribute the avoid cancer.

-Prevents headaches caffein makes blood tow slower in your brain and makes headaches go away.

-Makes you lose weight, caffein stimulates your organism keeping warm up and makes you burm calories.

-Helps children in school making them to pay attention, concentrate and learning.

-Prevents alcohol, drugs, and cigarrettes.

-Prevents depression thanks to a substance named Quindio which stimulates the mood in each person.

-Coffee may causes a healthy addiction on it if you drink a moderatly. To refer about an addiction it is a fake because it is a dependence that may causes damage to your health.

We laugh but at the same time can only imagine what our translation would come out as. HA
It sounds as though the answer to the world's problems might just be a good 'ol cup of java! :)

  1. Well, if the Cancer Research Center AMC in Denver, CO says it, it has to be true. Cause they know.

  5. Oh, you are so right! My translation would most likely sound worse, so at least I got the gist of that.
    I drink java every day...I can't imagine life w/out it:) My sis bought her and I matching plaques for our kitchens:
    "Life is too short for bad coffee".
    Amen.
    I must confess, though, I never gave it to my kids....I thought it would stunt their growth. (thank you Grandma for your words of wisdom:)

  8. Um, it prevents addiction? No wonder they have it at AA meetings and methadone clinics! Sometimes the words just don't translate, but that coffee has made some "bold" claims.

  12. I always knew my addiction would pay off! ;) My fav is about helping children pay attention; I teach ninth grade and when some of them occasionally come in with a little styrofoam cup of coffee, I know to get my helmet!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  28. That's interesting!!! I still can't drink the stuff because it makes my heart race! And now I get a headache if I eat too much chocolate! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is great! I guess I'll keep drinkin' my coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would not disagree with that logic. Coffee makes the world go round. Or at least it works to de-zombie-fy me in the mornings. It was almost a word. ;) Pleasure visiting today. Best of luck.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I don't drink coffee, I drink diet coke. Since they both have caffeine, I have to agree with this translation. Haha.

  32. I knew there was a reason I drink coffee every day!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm sure I couldn't translate any better. Congratulations on your baby!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yea! Now my husband won't get after me for drinking so much!

    ReplyDelete
  35. sooooo.... what organism does coffee warm up? and do i really want to know the answer to this?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I guess it's a good thing that Starbucks hasn't gotten its hands on that coffee or else they would definitely be able to take over the world. :P

    Happy SITS Day!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my goodness that is too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm trying not to laugh AT but to laugh WITH.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love reading translations like that. Always a good giggle. It's a lot better than mine would be though.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I really wish my mother had given my coffee with my cookies when I was little; I may have never started smoking! :P

    ReplyDelete
  41. I LOVE coffee. What a great post! =)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hahah I love mistranslations!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Too funny! Maybe we should be serving coffee to all kids in school to make them smarter.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well, duh! No wonder I'm not losing any weight! I don't think I've ever burmed a single calorie!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Too funny! Hubby and I speak some Spanish but aren't fluent. When we try to translate packaging literally it is hilarious. It needs come out quite right although you know what they are trying to say, even if you don't agree with their statements (in this case).

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm an avid coffee drinker so I will agree that it is mildly addictive. (OK, ok... a lot addictive) BUT! There are some great coffee companies out there who do a lot of their communities and the environment so I like to get on board with those.

    Happy SITS day!

    ReplyDelete
  47. That is funny! I can't stand coffee, but it if has all those benefits I might start lol.
