Not all of us love coffee but those of us that do, know a good one from a bad one. Coffee wakes us up in the morning, gives us a boost when we’re feeling the three o’clock slump and is a great accompaniment to conversation.

So how much do we know about coffee? Here are a few fun facts:

The coffee bean comes from a red berry from a tree known as Coffea Arabica that is native to Ethiopia (once called Abyssinia.) There is also a type of coffee bean known as Robusta.

Legend has it that a goat-herd named Kaldi noticed one day that his goats had become lively and energetic after eating the berries of a particular tree. Kaldi tried the berries and he, too felt a boost of energy. Thinking they must contain magical powers, word soon spread and the berries began to be harvested for regular consumption. Initially the beans were eaten as a food mixed with animal fat.

Studies show that coffee drinkers are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia.

It takes around ten minutes for the effects of caffeine to kick in.

It’s believed that great composers like Beethoven and Brahms were inspired by drinking coffee. Brahms would have his first coffee at five o’clock in the morning. Beethoven would count the beans so that each cup contained exactly sixty.

The Dutch were the first to establish coffee-houses and cafes.

New Yorkers drink around seven times as much coffee as the rest of the world.

Coffee is the second most consumed drink in the world. The first one is water.

The word ‘Coffee’ means ‘Wine of the bean.’

Coffee contains essential nutrients and anti-oxidants. It can lower your risk of type two diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and some cancers. It’s good for your liver and can decrease your risk of stroke.

As long as we don’t overdo it we can sip away to our heart’s content. The recommended maximum for regular healthy adults is around eight cups (or four mugs.)

What better reasons to enjoy your daily brew?

A great article, about my super favourite beverage! I enjoy plunger coffee at home, and flat whites when out. My average intake is three mugs, more if I'm going to be out driving at night.


This coffee was made for me by the lovely Elle, who used to work at the Mallala Hotel, my local coffee house!
