Coffee history

From today’s coffee culture back to the legendary origins

The evolution of coffee

The role of coffee in people’s lives varies from the functional to the ritualistic and is a strong enabler of social gatherings around the world. Most people have a favourite coffee brewing method or at least one they use the most whether out of habit or preference.

Drinking this magnificent beverage, brewed from the seed of the same plant – Coffea Canephora (also known as Coffea Robusta) and Coffea Arabica – plays a crucial role in so many people’s lives and has given rise to the specialty coffee or the ‘Third Wave movement’- a movement dedicated to providing high-quality coffee that’s brewed to perfection from farm to cup.

But how did it reach this level of popularity? To answer that question, we have to travel back in time to the 17th century.
