Today a record was set by local Buena Vista Cafe, for serving the world’s largest Irish Coffee. Guinness Books personnel were on hand to verify and video record the event. It will take at least another 4 – 6 weeks before its official.

Having poured 10 litres of Irish whiskey, 10 gallons of coffee and dumping 4 pounds of sugar into a 12 gallon, 3 foot high container, and topping with some steamed frothy milk for the finale — the event was a success. It was certainly a frenzy in the tiny cafe-saloon that serves upwards of 2000 Irish Coffee’s a day.

This joint is famous for their Irish Coffee which has its roots forming in a November night of 1952, and today was the final run for a 3-day celebration marking its 56 year anniversary.
