Know More About Your Coffee

13 Jul

For all of my friends who will see this title and say, “Oh no, more coffee… Havent you written enough posts on coffee already?”, I have to respond and say – “You can never write enough about coffee. It’s like chocolate or mangoes”.. Do you ever feel that you have written / eaten / appreciated enough of chocolates or mangoes or anything else as sinful for that matter? 

My friend Sridhar, another coffee lover (but much much worse than me in fact) sent this really nice email forward on the said subject and I just couldn’t help myself and had to post it… It’s by theoatmeal.com and you can check their site for more such posts.

This provides a few interesting facts about coffee and its origin –

 

Of late I have often found myself exploring (online) the coffee regions and the countries where coffee actually oriniginated. So, is the coffee belt the next travel destination??? hhhmmmm… could be… 🙂

    I love all this coffee info and glad to know that I have been telling people the truth about the origin of coffee, Ethiopia. Keep up the info. I am addicted, according to my daughter, to info she claims is useless. Who cares. I love it. Thanks!! Juliana

    Reblogged this on writingontherim and commented:
    I usually do not reblog other blogs, but as a lover of coffee and what Ema calls trivia, I just have to reblog this. In Costa Rica, I kept getting asked where did coffee originate and I said, “Ethiopia”. This confirms that I was correct. In fact, this inspired me to make coffee in the middle of the afternoon on a hot Texas day.

        We loved it, never knew you could get so many different flavours of coffee. They were free to try so it was a case of caffeine overload…They also had chocolate samples, how good is that…

    There’s no such thing as too much coffee 🙂 When I travel I almost always seek out the same things – pretty sights to photograph and the local coffee culture
