Gourmet Coffee, My Everyday, Whats Yours?

Well, I drink coffee everyday. Before work, during work and after work. Lots of friends tell me this is no good, yeah... I know, I understand, but I really can't resist the incredible taste of coffee.

Where does this amazing small black pee from? Some intro and history here...

On the rising hills of Columbia, the fastest growing cash crop in the country is cultivated. This is the coffee bean.

The seeds of this shrub, which belongs to the Madder family, are called coffee, as is the beverage made from them, produced by passing boiled water through a filter containing ground roasted coffee beans. It can be consumed warm or cold and in any of the following styles: instant, filter, cappuccino, espresso (so strong you are only allowed 5ml at any one time, and it must be served in a steel reinforced cup), mocha, latte, or any combination of these with the word 'double' attached somewhere. Some drink their coffee with cream and sugar, others with milk and sugar; but purists claim the only way to drink a cup of 'Joe' is black... with or without sugar.

Columbia is not the only country to produce fine grains of ambrosia. The hands-down best producer of coffee may be Puerto Rico. Yucua is the name of the plant. It is grown on the mountains of the rainforest on the beautiful island. Rare and expensive, this is the coffee of choice not just for Puerto Ricans, but also for the Vatican... and the Pope knows his coffee!

So here're some Coffee Facts.
* Coffee beans grow on small trees.
* It takes the annual yield of one tree to produce one pound of roasted beans.
