February 2, 2019 marked the 225th birthday of Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge of whom I'd never heard. Yep, I'm a few days late.

Runge identified caffeine as the active ingredient of coffee.

C/Net wrote a nice summary which includes a link to the Doodle.

I'm so glad that Google takes the time to do these and includes both the well known and not-so-well known.
