A Short History

The coffee plant originated in the hills of what is now Ethiopia. It still grows wild there to this day and is one of the most unique flavor profiles in the coffee world. Despite this, it was Yemen that first cultivated this popular plant. Shipped out of the port of Mocha ( a huge trading port of the day) coffee became a world trade good by the 15th century.

By 1616 the Dutch had figured out a way to propagate the plant on their colony lands in Sri Lanka. In 1699 cuttings were also taken to the island of Java, another Dutch possession. Soon Europe had their own supply of this popular bean. These, supplemented by the Mocha imports made Europe a coffee drinking populace. It is from the blend of these imports that the name “Mocha Java” was coined, no longer produced as it was in the past due to a tragic coffee blight in Java that forced them to replant with hardier but less tasty robusta plants. The profitability of this trade good soon encouraged others to produce the crop, until it spread the world over and is now the second most traded commodity after oil.

What is Coffee?

From the genus “Coffea” it is a member of the Rubiaceae family. All coffea species are woody evergreens that can be either treelike (up to 3oft high) or small shrubs.

As a coffee drinker there are two major species within the genus. Coffea Arabica gives us the Arabica bean, known as the superior quality bean and the only one drunk on it’s own. Coffea Rbusta is a hardier variety that is more resistant to disease and produces higher yields of bean. Unfortunately the more intensely flaored brew from robusta is considered rough and is a little higher in caffeine content. The beans are mostly used in blending to make Arabica beans go further.

The bean itself is from the cherry like fruit of the plant. There is usually two beans per cherry that are removed and dried to make the tradable product “coffee”. The beans are then roasted before brewing. The amount of labor involved in a single cup of coffee is one thing the drinker should contemplate before being able to truly enjoy this exotic brew.
