WHEN WAS COFFEE FIRST BREWED?
The first coffee plants were probably cultivated in Kaffa, a province of Ethiopia in East Africa. Here, the beans had been used as an edible stimulant for centuries, roasted or prepared with fat.
Coffee first appeared to be brewed as a drink in the Yemen in the fourteenth century. As Muslims, they found the stimulating effects of coffee (as) an alternative to wine. From the Yemen, the use of coffee spread to the rest of the Islamic world. It first appeared in Western Europe around 1615.

Coffee is now grown widely in tropical regions, especially in Colombia, the Ivory Coast, and Brazil, which is the world’s largest producer. The coffee plants are pruned to about ten feet. This makes it easier to harvest the berries, each of which holds two tough-skinned greenish beans. After six or seven months, the beans ripen to a deep red and are ready for picking. The richness and strength of the resulting coffee depends on the variety of beans and the length of time for which they are roasted.
Tea is another popular beverage. The Chinese are the original tea drinkers. They have enjoyed tea for more than 4,000 years. It was only about 300 years ago that Europeans first tasted tea.
