Inside every warm, inviting cup of coffee lies a past which explains the history of why we drink this body energizing beverage daily. The rich history of the cup of coffee and the coffee café gives your morning beverage more of a kick, and it’s not from the caffeine.
In the early 9th century a legend arose that a goat herder in Ethiopia discovered that his flock of goats were eating strange berries and becoming wildly energetic. The herder began to brew the berries up into a drink, and BOOM the delicious java drink was born.
The coffee house has been around since the 1600’s when Turkey had a café consisting of coffee, tea, chocolate and tobacco. After passing the idea onto Europe, coffee café’s became a place of discussing business, reading, and enjoying the company of others.
The popularity of this drink grew when the public started to see how the brew had beneficial factors such as health, concentration, and social aspects. This rich caffeinated beverage has been bringing people together in coffee houses for centuries. The fact that coffee houses have not changed much over the years, keeps the tradition of coffee that much more fascinating.
