Let’s Talk Coffee

People drink coffee for a number of reasons:

  • To boost their energy levels, metabolism, and brain function with caffeine
  • To enjoy the taste, smell, and comfort of the beverage
  • To benefit from its health effects, such as reducing the risk of some diseases, improving mood, and enhancing athletic performance
  • To cope with physical or psychological dependence on caffeine
  • To follow their cultural or social norms and habits

  • Coffee was allegedly discovered by an Ethiopian goat herder who noticed his goats acting jittery after eating ripe coffee beans.
  • Mocha was originally the name of a Yemen port that exported coffee beans to the world.
  • Coffee is not made from beans, but from the seeds of coffee cherries, which are the fruits of the coffee plant.
  • Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world, after oil.
  • Coffee can help prevent some diseases, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and type 2 diabetes.
