Coffee in the morning; coffee and a catch up with old friends; going for coffee with your new hot date – we drink coffee with friends, business associates and lovers. You only have to walk down the nearest high street and note the number of coffee chains to realise the extent of our love affair with our favourite caffeinated beverage.
Whether you prefer espresso, Americanos, lattes or cappuccinos; iced, decaf, instant or filter – take time each day to savour and appreciate your beverage.
With the origin of coffee beans sourced to Ethiopia, the story goes that a 9th century goat herder noticed their stimulating effects on his goats and began experimenting. We couldn’t be more grateful that he did. Coffee drinking was originally popularised in the Arab world from around the 15th century, spreading across Asia then to Italy and across Europe and to the Americas – and finally to your coffee cup.
