The Scientific American has a recent story on a researcher, Ryan Summers, at the University of Iowa, who has discovered a new strain of bacteria called Pseudomonas Putida CBB5 that apparently has the ability to live off of caffeine.  This is the first time a bacteria with this capability has been identified which naturally leads to the question, have we just witnessed an example of evolution?
