Coffee Smells Wake Up The World

Coffee smells wake up the world every morning and keep people awake at night. As the German Physician Leonhard Rauwolf said in 1583:

A beverage as black as ink, useful against numerous illnesses, particularly those of the stomach. Its consumers take it in the morning, quite frankly, in a porcelain cup that is passed around and from which each one drinks a cupful. It is composed of water and the fruit from a bush called bunnu.

The bush is, of course, the evergreen Coffee bush that was first discovered in Ethiopia when shepherds noticed that their goats were extra frisky after eating the fruit from the Coffee bush. They are red berries and each berry contains two coffee beans. So from then on it spread around the world and many countries produce this wake up bean.

The First Thing In The Morning

There's nothing like that first cup of coffee in the morning. It is your wake up beverage as it is for millions of people around the world. Some people feel lthat they cannot function if they don't get their morning fix whether ity be at home or at their favorite coffee shop. Once consumed, they are ready to take on the world.

Ahh! Caffeine

Aahh! Caffeine. Can't start the day without it. The first cup is ambrosia and gets you poumped up so you are ready to face the day with vigor. It gets the old pump revving in high gear and the boost in your psyche does a lot to get you ready to tackle the days problems

Beans A Roasting

The coffee beans are really berries that contain the bean. Some berries have two beans others only one. Once the berries are rip, they are harvested, the beans extracted and roasted. They are not ready for grinding which can be different depending on the taste you want.

You name it and I bet someone has added it to their cup of coffee. From congnac to cream, coffee has been flavored for centures. Even nuts have been added to coffee for Heaven's sake. It's all according to how you like it and, of course, some like it black or straight up.

Coffee was Discovered Around 850 A.D.

The first coffee was roasted in Arabia. From there is spread rapidly around the world and in 1600 it was accepted as a Christian drink by Pope Clement VIII. Many people at the time wanted the Muslim drink banned. The Dutch were the first to import coffee on a large scale, and they were among the first to defy the Arab prohibition on the exportation of plants or unroasted seeds when Pieter van den Broeck smuggled seedlings from Aden into Europe in 1616.

The Dutch later grew the crop in Java and Ceylon. Through the efforts of the British East India Company, coffee became popular in England as well. It was introduced in France in 1657, and in Austria and Poland after the 1683 Battle of Vienna, when coffee was captured from supplies of the defeated Turks.
