Scientist Teaching Bacteria to Eat Coffee Plant's Caffeine

NEW YORK (Reuters) - In what could be a page taken from a science fiction novel, a scientist in his laboratory is trying to teach bacteria how to devour and destroy the caffeine contained in a coffee plant.

If successful, which the scientist says is probably years away, the experiment may yield a naturally decaffeinated brew that could have a richer and deeper taste than the decaf fare currently available.

Just one question. What is the point of coffee if there's no caffeine in it?

Time for another cup.
