Stieg Larsson and coffee

In the first segment of the Millennium Trilogy, there are 126 references to coffee in around 460 pages. In the sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, there are 115 references to coffee in around 440 pages. So between every third and fourth page, someone is either drinking coffee or Stieg is commenting about coffee. This is the two books and I doubt the third is any different. One criticism about Larrson's writing in these books is constant listing and over-descriptive attitude towards furniture in particular. Did anyone else this and what do you think about it?
