Why Catholicism is the best religion in the world

Bene+dic, Domine, creaturam istam cerevisiae, quam ex adipe frumenti producere dignatus es: ut sit remedium salutare humano generi, et praesta per invocationem nominis tui sancti; ut, quicumque ex ea biberint, sanitatem corpus et animae tutelam percipiant. Per Christum Dominum nostrum.
R. Amen.

I was reading the 1964 (alas) Rituale Romanum the other day and noted that not only was there a blessing of a railway and its carriages, but there was also a more solemn form, which involved processing to the station singing the Benedictus under an antiphon, etc.

The Catholic religion is so practical.

But is there a blessing of coffee?
