~800 A.D. –  Shepherds discovered coffee in Ethiopia!
9th century goat herders noticed the effect “coffee berries” had on their goats: they would “dance” after eating the fruit. A monk made a drink with coffee beans, discovered it kept him awake at night, and the original cup of coffee was brewed!

Coffee was originally a food: coffee berries were mixed with fat to create an energy-rich snack ball. It was also drunk as a wine made from the pulp of coffee berries.

A coffee bean is the seed of the coffee plant and the source for coffee. The “bean” is the pit inside the small rounded red or purple fruit often referred to as a cherry (aka “stone fruit”) about the size of a grape that grow in clusters on branches of the coffee plant.

Coffee tree bushes can live 60 to 70 years.

When you drink coffee, the caffeine reaches your blood in about 10 minutes. And just smelling coffee can wake you up! Scientists reported inhaling the aroma of coffee can alter brain activity of some genes, and reduces the effects of sleep deprivation.

Espresso has 1/3 of the caffeine of a cup of coffee due to serving size difference.

“Our culture runs on coffee and gasoline, the first often tasting like the second.” 
– Edward Abbey

Coffee is the 2nd most traded commodity on earth: there are ~25 million coffee farmers in over 50 countries producing coffee. Oil is still the #1 traded commodity.

3 countries consume 65% of the world’s coffee: the United States, France and Germany.
The Netherlands is now the world’s largest per capita consumer of coffee, averaging 2.4 cups of coffee per person per day. Sorry Finland.

Global consumption is equal to about 2.25 BILLION CUPS OF COFFEE every day!

Water is the only beverage more popular than coffee.

Approximately 54% of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee every day.
Americans drink 400 million cups of coffee per day, equivalent to 146 billion cups each year, making the United States the leading consumer of coffee in the world!
The average American spends around $20 a week on coffee!

DECAF FUELS THE SODA INDUSTRY! Once the coffee beans are decaffeinated, some coffee producers sell the caffeine to soft drink and pharmaceutical companies.

NOTE: Decaf coffee is not completely caffeine-free! The decaffeination process removes 94-98% of the caffeine. The average 16-ounce cup of caffeinated coffee has ~188 ml of caffeine and the average 16-ounce cup of decaffeinated coffee only has ~9.4 ml.

“Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and sweet as love.”
 – Turkish Proverb

There are two types of coffee beans: Arabica and Robusta. 70% of coffee beans are Arabica. Robusta beans are slightly more bitter and have twice as much caffeine.
There are actually over 20 different coffee plants in the world, but these two are the most common commercially grown, processed and sold.

Coffee is actually a fruit. Coffee beans are actually the pits of a berry grown on bushes. Coffee is actually a seed, but it’s called a bean because of its resemblance to actual beans.

“I judge a restaurant on its bread and its coffee” – Burt Lancaster

Pie and Coffee “To Go”

“Coffee is always a good idea” – Anonymous

Drinking coffee may lower your risk of depression. Drinking 2-4 cups of coffee daily has been found to reduce the risk of suicide by 50% compared to non-coffee drinkers.

A study in the Journal of Psychopharmacology finds having coffee before a conversation will actually make you focus better and feel better about the people you are talking to.

According to a study from the Netherlands, caffeine can increase your metabolic rate by as much as 11% within 3 hours after drinking it. So, coffee can help you lose weight!

WARNING! You can overdose on coffee!
You would need to drink over 70 cups of coffee to consume a lethal dose of caffeine
(the approximate amount of coffee needed to kill a 150-pound person).

Caffeine in coffee is a mild diuretic, but you won’t lose more fluid (water) than you take in drinking coffee, so it doesn’t dehydrate you.

Coffee contains over 1200 chemicals! Over half are responsible for creating the flavor.

Coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants consumed in the United States.
Bigger than fruits & vegetables! Brewed espresso has 2.5% fat, while filtered coffee contains 0.6% fat.

Coffee stays warmer when you add cream and cools about 20% slower than plain black coffee. When you add milk it weakens the effects of the caffeine because humans absorb coffee much slower when it has added milk fat, which decreases the stimulant effect.

NOTE: Drinking caffeine in the evening delays the brain’s release of melatonin and interrupts circadian rhythm by as much as 40 minutes. 50% of caffeine consumed clears from the body within 5 hours, it takes over a day to fully eliminate it completely from the system.

Before coffee became widely available, the most popular breakfast drink was beer.

In the 17th century Ottoman Empire, drinking coffee was punishable by death.

The first American granted a coffee trader license was Dorothy Jones of Boston in 1670.

The American Revolution and the French Revolution were planned in coffee houses. 

Instant coffee first appeared in England in 1771. The first mass-produced instant coffee was patented in the United States in 1910.

The “coffee break” was an advertising ploy created to sell more coffee.

Iced Espresso

“I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time.”
 
– Steven Wright

The word cappuccino comes from the drink’s resemblance to the robes of the Capuchin monks. The word espresso literally means “forced out.”

The majority of the world’s coffee, 40% is produced in Brazil, twice as much as 2nd place Colombia and 3rd place Vietnam. Hawaii is the only state in the United States that grows coffee commercially: Kona coffee. Hawaii’s weather is optimal for growing Kona coffee beans because coffee grows best in climates along the equator.

All coffee is grown within 1000 miles of the equator.

The largest cup of coffee contained over 3400 US gallons and was created by De’Longhi (Italy) in London in November 2012. Black coffee was used and the cup measured 9 feet, 6 inches tall and 8 feet, 8 inches wide.

Temperature & Timing Matter! Coffee flavor starts to deteriorate after about 30 minutes. Use an insulated carafe, to keep it tasty a little longer: 45-60 minutes.

“Coffee is a one-time use kind of deal. You make it, you drink it and if it gets cold, you make some more. Reheating reorganizes the chemical makeup of the coffee and totally ruins the flavor profile. Some things just don’t work to reheat, and coffee is one of them. It’s always best just to brew a fresh cup.”

Coffee roasting temperature can reach up to 527 degrees for as long as 30 minutes! When the correct temperature is reached the roasted coffee beans are quickly poured into a cooling tray to reduce temperature and stop the beans from cooking or catching fire.

“What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup.” – Henry Rollins

One coffee bush yields slightly less than one pound of coffee per year.

More than 36 people touch every coffee bean through the more than 23 step process it takes to get from the coffee bush to your coffee cup.

WARNING! ~20% of office coffee mugs contain fecal bacteria!

Peet’s Coffee & Tea in Berkeley (since 1966)

Peet’s Coffee & Tea is a San Francisco Bay Area based specialty coffee roaster and retailer founded in 1966 by Alfred Peet. He started Peet’s Coffee, Tea & Spices as a single store in 1966 on the corner of Walnut and Vine in Berkeley, California (where it is still located). Peet’s introduced the Bay Area and U.S. coffee retailing to darker roasted arabica coffee, such as French roast and grades appropriate for espresso drinks, and served as the model (and original coffee bean supplier) for Starbucks.

“Born March 10th, 1920 in the Netherlands, Alfred Peet grew up in the coffee trade before traveling the world. Upon landing in the United States, he was shocked at the poor-quality coffee Americans were drinking. When Mr. Peet opened the doors to his first Peet’s coffeebar in 1966, coffee enthusiasts gathered to appreciate his signature rich, dark roast.” – from the Peet’s Coffee webpage

The first Starbucks was opened in the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington, on March 31, 1971, by three partners who met while they were students at the University of San Francisco. Starbucks Corporation is now the leading roaster, retailer and marketer of specialty coffee in the world. Its operations include more than 7300 coffee shops and kiosks in the United States, and around 3000 more in 34 other countries.
