Discovered by a Goat
Yes! You heard it right; to be specific by a youthful goat herdsman named Kaldi in the 9th century. He observed his goats behaving oddly after they ate cherries from coffee trees and so he tasted it himself. This tale does not appear in many history pages, but it seems believable and pretty interesting.
Originates from a Cherry
Coffee comes from a tree or bush that yields cherry fruit. The coffee bean is actually the seed that is found inside the cherry. If the coffee itself wasn’t such a worthy and flavorsome product I think we could spot coffee cherry fruits in many local stores! The coffee cherry’s flavor is similar to light honey, sweet, peachy and watermelon just like a very yummy tart fruit.
Over 50 Species
There are above 50 species of coffee cultivated worldwide though only two, arabica and robusta, are commonly manufactured for commercial use. I suggest you should try out the various varieties and species if you get a chance to put them in your cup holders.
Light has more Caffeine than Dark
As opposed to the common myth, in reality light roast coffee contains more caffeine than its dark roast counterpart. It is because the longer coffee is roasted the more caffeine is burned out of the bean.
Espresso is NOT a Bean
Espresso is not a special type of bean, but a sort of coffee brewing technique. I feel several misleading notions about espresso arouse when products such as chocolate coffee espresso beans and espresso blend coffees became popular. People thought it was a bean but as a matter of fact it’s just a marketing gimmick (which we should learn perhaps for added excitement in our drink holder).
500 Billion Cups Drunk
More than 500 Billion Cups of coffee are drunk each year and over half of those are sipped at breakfast. That makes more cups than there are wheelchair accessories available on the market
Of course yes, coffee can be employed to fuel your vehicle. Although it may not be very effective at present, it is good to learn that it can, not just enliven our bodies but our cars too. Google “coffee fuel test car” to learn more.
Second Most Traded Commodity
Coffee is the second main traded product in the world second to only oil. Now that we know it can be utilized as a fuel source, it won’t take long for it to climb up to the number 1 spot.
