“Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee”

“Behind every successful person is a substantial amount of coffee” (or “Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee”) is a coffee saying that has been printed on many images. “Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee” is from American artist Stephanie Piro and has been cited in print since at least 1997.
 
“Behind every successful person there is a substantial amount of coffee”—the less-popular version—was posted on Twitter on August 12, 2008.
