Coffee …Nectar of the gods

About 850 A.D it is said that a lone shepherd and his flock
came across a weird and mysterious plant growing upon a
secluded and forgotten hillside. Before he could stop them
some of his herd had started to gnaw away at this unusual
berry. After about fifteen minutes or so the herder started
to notice that his sheep were behaving in an odd manner. Not
only were they unusually alert but they also appeared to be
extremely hyperactive. Now being a small weary and
extremely tired the shepherd chose to try the berries and
see if the end results would be the same for him as they had
been for his flock. To his pleasant surprise the shepherd
started to feel wide awake and he too became very alert. After
a few hours had passed along came a wandering monk who,
after being informed of the plants incredible qualities
proceeded to scold the poor shepherd and lecture him on his
foolish indulgence. After he had finished telling the
shepherd just what a sinner he had been the monk set upon
his journey but not before he had added a small something
to his backpack and supplies.

When the monk reached his monastery his fellow holy men also
chose to try this new and enchanting beverage. Soon the
endless hours of prayer no longer seemed so wearisome, in
fact they became simple to endure with the help of this
exciting new drink. Coffee, had now well and truly arrived
and the news started to spread! Its widespread consumption
first commenced in the wilds of the Ethiopian outlands
before then moving on to the heart of Arabia . Here it was
to be held as a holy delicacy but was eventually to be
unlawfully exported by a trader by the name of Baba Budan.
In no time at all word of its qualities started to spread and
coffee was to evolve into one of the most valued drinks ever
known to the human civilisation. Its hard to believe that
each year we consume a staggering four billion cups and
there are many among us who would not contemplate starting
their day without it.

Although coffee is usually thought of as a sleep suppressant
there are many who reckon that it also has many health
benefits. It is said that folk who suffer from the complaint
of asthma and drink coffee have an average of at least 25%
less symptoms due to a substance in the coffee named
theophylline. This is known to be a bronchodilator which
helps those who suffer with the disease to breathe a small
more easily. Drinking coffee on a daily basis is also
thought to help lower your chances of developing colon
cancer. This is also by a figure in the region of about
twenty five percent.

Its curious that the vast majority of folk have no thought of
the different tastes and delights that this king of all
drinks has to offer us. One of the swiftest growing trends
of the last few years has to be the rising popularity of
buying coffee via the internet. Never before have we been
able to so easily get hold of such a large and voluptuous
variety of blends, tastes and tantalising aromas from all
over the world. With the aid of the wonderful web, trekking
around the local neighbourhood to try and find some new
exciting coffee blends has became a thing of the past.
Sitting at home I can now search out an nearly infinite
variety of coffees from all over the world and order them
at the click of a mouse. I tend to place numerous orders
via the web and I always make a point of recording blend,
country, and from exactly whom I bought.

Now you know the history of this magical bean I hope that if
in the days to come you are thinking of visiting your local
coffee shop you recall the information you have read on this
website and make the most of this wonderful drink. Go on and
try some new varieties. Not only will you impress your
friends, your tastebuds will be thrilled as well.
