VIENNA (AP) — In a heist that could fill the mother of all bottomless cups, thieves in Austria have made off with 2 tons of coffee.

Police say the culprits broke into a wholesaler and coffee-roaster's warehouse east of Vienna, loaded a stolen van with the goods and then drove off.

A police statement issued Tuesday put the value of the vehicle and its contents at more than 55,000 euros — $72,000.

The thieves also took two coffee machines with them.
