An interesting story of coffee


What we know about coffee?
It all started with the goats. According to one legend, Ethiopian shepherds from the tribe of Copts were herding goats noticed that the skin is very playful when you browse the leaves and red berries from a wild bush. Most likely, the strong scent of berries, if they accidentally got into the fire where the shepherds preparing food, the reason that they themselves try their effect .. and there followed coffee.


For centuries, Ethiopia was the only area that is known for the benefits of "black drink". It was not until sometime in the 15th century, Arab traders were the plant that relaxes the senses and sharpens the mind began to grow in Yemen. From the port of Mocha coffee began its journey.

Originally, coffee spread is only the Islamic world for years to spread throughout the Ottoman Empire. Each end had its own specific way of preparation. The Venetian consul in his report mentioned often dark and hot drink that Turks often drink and hang out with you. She was the faithful companion of Turkish troops from city to city, from country to country.

In the 17th century, the Turks came to Vienna, attempted to conquer it, but without success. Hastily retreating, left plenty of unusual grain sacks. And that coffee came to Europe. Viennese were the first Europeans who began to enjoy the fragrant black beverage. They first started adding coffee milk, sugar ...

Kafedžinice first opened in Cairo and Mecca, the most famous in Constantinople 1475th year.

The origin of the name of coffee, we came across the three versions.
First: coffee is named after the Latin word Coffea, a tree from the family Rubiacea that includes more than 6000 species of tropical trees and shrubs.
Second: The name of coffee is linked to the Ethiopian province of the same name.
The third version is linked to the Arabic word meaning coffee house: a plant that disturbs our sleep.

There are two types of coffee - Arabica and Robusta. Arabica beans are used more frequently because of its better quality.
there is one in whose flag the symbol of a coffee bean. You guessed it to Brazil. We could say that coffee is a trademark of Brazil. there began to be grown on plantations in the second half of the 19th century, and today it reaches the production of nearly 2 million tons. The main export port of the santos, on which was named best Brazilian Coffee - Bourbon Santos. Coffee "minas" is named after the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil.

In Bosnia for centuries together drinking coffee / coffee / coffee neighbors of different faiths and nations was the most obvious example of coexistence and tolerance in this region. As a result of that friendship originated the famous phrase "excess findžan"

Coffee protects against many diseases.
One tablespoon finely milled coffee mixed with equal quantity of lemon juice is a good medicine for headache.
The usual properties ascribed to coffee - to cause cancer, that is bad for the heart, and hard to stomach - not remotely correspond to the truth, say experts from the International Scientific Association of Coffee and suggest that this popular beverage has numerous effects in protecting against serious diseases . Taking the relatively large amounts of coffee - six cups a day - will not lead to heart or digestive problems in healthy people, but will reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease or diabetes. Coffee got a bad reputation because of its medical research activity of the whole two centuries was only focused on the impact of caffeine, which is a beverage with various ingredients, the experts pointed out the International Association for the coffee. It contains acids and other substances that destroy free radicals. It also contains useful minerals, especially potassium and magnesium. Coffee also has better effects than fruits and vegetables against DNA oxidation, which is the source of many serious diseases, especially cancer.
A group of researchers led by Dr. Graham in experiments on volunteers demonstrated that caffeine capsule increased endurance and pushes the limits of fatigue as opposed to caffeine from coffee. Although this phenomenon is difficult to explain, it seems that the coffee is something hindering the full effect of caffeine.
E this and more in a month was laid bare seventh grade students, exploring the design of the coffee.
