Your observation is not necessarily "discovery" but rather "learning," I would say.
We then get to the number 10,000 - the number of experiences we need before we reach serious expert status.
Or, at 1 espresso a day and a responsible parent (not exposing their child and its brain to caffeine before brain development has finalized), a person needs to be between 48 and 51 before we should consider that person a reliable source in the judgment of caffè.
So, I get it, we need to ask the OP for his age, the age at which he started drinking caffè and the average daily intake. Below 10,000 we should forgive him - above nominated to the Foundation for the Advancement of Wearing Wooden Coats? Or what would you suggest?
