History of Coffee
There is a Turkish proverb- “A cup of coffee commits one to forty years of friendship.” The advent of coffee beans in the human civilization is traced back to hundreds thousands years in the Ethiopian Highlands and Yemen. In fact, the green coffee beans happen to be the "first trail mix", being relished by travellers on long journeys. However, the Arab world began expanding its trade horizons, and the beans moved into northern Africa and were mass-cultivated. From there, the beans entered the Indian and European markets, and the popularity of the beverage spread.

Some historians suggest that coffee was introduced into Arabia by slave traders who raided Africa as early as 1000 BC. One possible origin of both the beverage and the name is the Kingdom of Kaffa in Ethiopia, where the coffee plant originated (its name there is bunn or bunna. It was in the year 1607 that coffee was introduced to the New World by Captain John Smith, founder of Virginia at Jamestown.

The Palatable Coffee

Arab/Turkish Coffee: Being prepared in an "ibriq"- the small copper pot with a long handle, the Arab coffee consists of two teaspoons of finely-ground coffee plus one of sugar. After adding this combination to a cup of water, it is brought to the boil. A cardamom seed can also be added for flavor.

The Filter Method: The drip or filter method is possibly the most widely used method today. Finely-ground coffee is placed in a paper or reusable cone-shaped unit and nearly boiling water is poured on the top. The filter method is used especially in Germany and the USA.

The Plunger/Cafetiere: Known to be invented in 1933, this method extracts the maximum flavor from the ground beans. The pot is warmed, coarsely ground coffee is placed in the bottom, hot water is added to the grounds and stirred, then it is allowed to steep for three to five minutes, before the plunger is pushed down to separate the coffee grounds from the coffee infusion.

The Jug: Addressed as the "serviceable stop-gap method" as well as the simplest of all, it requires quite coarsely ground coffee and hot water.

Espresso and Cappuccino: Initially invented in Italy, these are the fastest growing methods of making coffee. Espresso is the foundation of cappuccino; it is the coffee upon which a luxuriant structure of frothed and foamed milk is ladled and poured.

The Moka-Napoletana: Another Italian method, it combines the characteristics of espresso and percolator coffee.

Soluble/Instant Coffee: The first soluble "instant" coffee was invented in 1901 by a Japanese-American chemist Satori Kato of Chicago. It has a number of advantages over fresh brewed coffee, including ease and convenience. It stays fresh for long, is fast, cheap and clean.

Flavored Coffees: An interesting and fast growing area of the market is flavored coffees. Today there are over 100 different flavored varieties available. In fact, the growth in popularity of flavored coffee is proof of coffee's versatility and strength.
