Thousands of cans and vacuum packed bricks of Cafe Bustelo brand coffee have washed up on the beaches of Indialantic, Fla., on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015, most likely from a barge container that had fallen overboard this past weekend. The coffee began washing ashore along an area over a mile long in Brevard County, on the east coast of Central Florida. People began cleaning up the mess, or decided to enjoy some free java.

Plus, a container of wine washed up in St. Lucie County, WPBF reports.
But where are the items coming from?
It’s believed they could be from as many as 25 shipping containers that fell from a barge in rough seas Sunday. The barge, the Columbia Elizabeth, had 243 containers offloaded yesterday at the Port of Palm Beach, the Coast Guard said via Twitter.
“The barge was brought into here so that its containers could be unloaded and reloaded to a second barge,” said Tara Monks, spokeswoman for the Port of Palm Beach District. “The damaged and surrounding containers are still on the barge, which is still at the port. Crews are working to remedy the situation. We do not know if the barge has damage.”
