INDIALANTIC, Fla. (AP) - Hundreds of sealed coffee cans and vacuum-packed coffee bricks have washed ashore along Florida's Space Coast and officials believe they may be from containers that fell off a barge last weekend.

Florida Today reports (http://on.flatoday.com/1XScgDf ) that the yellow-and-red packages of Cafe Bustelo dotted the beach Tuesday in Indialantic, where delighted beach combers were scooping them up and stuffing them into bags.

The news outlet says the coffee may have come from a barge ship that lost containers between Cape Canaveral and Palm Beach last weekend.

The report quotes the Coast Guard as saying that as many as 25 containers fell overboard, including one that contained batteries.
