Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world.
Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant.
Did you know?
First of all the genus, Coffea is native to tropical Africa (specifically having its origin in Ethiopia and Sudan) and Madagascar, Comoros, Mauritius, and Réunion in the Indian Ocean.
Firstly people exported the plant from Africa to countries around the world. It is now cultivated in over 70 countries. (Primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, India, and Africa)
Dried coffee seeds are roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. Furthermore, roasted beans are grounded and brewed with near-boiling water to produce coffee as a beverage.
