A coffee miracle: Hundreds of Café Bustelo cans wash up on Florida beach

In what will go down in history as the best spill Florida has ever had, cans upon cans of Café Bustelo washed up on the Indialantic shore Tuesday. 

Florida Today reports the coffee possibly comes from a missing load of containers that fell overboard from a vessel on its way to Puerto Rico. Some people would probably be hesitant to use coffee that had a traumatic trip in the ocean, but the area's residents apparently do not mind, because they packed the cans and vacuumed coffee bricks into trash bags and took it home. We can smell the cafecito from here. 

Look what washed up on the beach today. Seaweed.... And coffee! #cafebustelo #freecoffee
