Coffee as locomotive fuel If a steam engine can run on bricks of dried milk, then using bricks of pressed coffee beans as fuel, as Popular Science reported was taking place in Brazil in 1932, doesn’t seem quite so farfetched.

All we need is a locomotive running on bricks of sugar and a really big cup. Via Make: Blog.
