RICHMOND, UNITED KINGDOM -- For most of us, our caffeine fix is how we start the day. Yeah, it’s as routine as putting on a pair of pants. But can you image going without your cup of Joe, like, forever?

Sounds pretty awful, right?

Now lucky for us, researchers don't think this coffee conundrum will go down until 2100, but let's try and imagine life without coffee. Yeah, that's enough to make you hold on to your mug a little tighter.

Starbucks, anyone?
