Coffee History 101

The Coffee Cherry

For most of us, the first image conjured in our head when anyone mentions coffee is the small brown bean. However, coffee is actually a seed and comes from a bright red berry, called the coffee cherry. Often squeezed into a juice, the flesh of a coffee cherry is surprisingly good and has a melon-like sweetness when ripe. The dark coffee bean we all recognize starts off as a soft, pale seed inside the cherry.

Coffee Destinations: Ethiopia

Ethiopia is treasured as being the birthplace of coffee and beans found in this region are some of the most sought after. With the perfect climate and natural surroundings, sweet Arabica beans naturally grow in the country's forests. Native mountain tribes discovered the stimulating effects of the coffee bean centuries ago when only the berries were consumed. Ethiopian beans were later spread by Sufi Islam into the Middle East, popularizing the caffeinated drink.

Coffee Destinations: Guatemala

Nestled in the mysterious lush forest of Central America, Guatemala was once the home of the great Mayan Empire. Their drink of choice was a bitter cocoa, but once coffee took hold, Guatemalans began embracing it with a passion. Today one of Guatemala’s most prized treasures is not only the mystifying ancient past but the rich bold taste of the Guatemalan coffee beans. They have even come up with their own special twists like Flambe Mayan, which is coffee spiced up with liquor and orange.
