Coffee is the second largest commodity in the world just behind oil. It is estimated that 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed each day worldwide. We love it and we spend enormous amounts of money on it every year. But Where exactly did this caffeinated delight have its beginning?

The legend goes that an Ethiopian farmer first noticed the energy burst after eating the red berries on a coffea plant which he decided to try because his goats started acting strange after having eaten them. Around the 13th Century people began roasting these beans begging the process toward what coffee is today.

By the 1600s, Coffee was quickly making its way throughout Europe. Marking the beginning of cafes. Coffee plants reached the New World during the early 18th century, though the drink wasn’t really popular in America until the Boston Tea Party of 1773, when making the switch from tea to coffee became something of a patriotic duty. The Civil War and other conflicts that followed also helped to increase coffee consumption, as soldiers relied on the caffeine for a boost of energy.

1971 was the year Starbucks Coffee started there first location changing the coffee industry forever. Specialty coffee has since evolved more and more with new technology and better equipment we have perfected making a delicious cup of caffeine. 

There you have it. A brief history of coffee and how it came to be what it is today! :)
