Solving coffee shortages

In Venezuela, they apparently love their coffee so much that even the National Guard is called to make raids to resolve the shortage.

Yes that's right...I thought the Dutch were a people who'd go mad when they couldnt get coffee, but the Venezuelans take it to the extreme. If they have to get the military to raid coffee warehouses so that they can appease the shortage, then that's probably a sign of addiction.

I hope the military got the the supplies on time. If not, an entire country could have fallen asleep mid-raid.
