That old cup o' joe. So, you think you know your coffee? Maybe you know what you like, and that is as far as your interest goes. But if you have a curious, questioning mind for a deeper understanding of the brew that opens your eyes every day, let’s explore.
Coffee is thought to be the result of a 10thcentury Ethiopian goat herder who noticed his goats became very energetic after eating berries off the coffee trees in the forest of the Ethiopian plateau. It was only a question of time before the energizing effects of coffee were recognized and exploited. By the 15thcentury coffee had made its debut on the Arabian Peninsula and became all the rage with coffee houses opening and coffee moving out of homes and into the commercial market place.
