It is probably common knowledge that coffee was discovered in Ethiopia. The ‘red’ cherries which the sheep ate and became very active were taken home and tasted and what was known as the devil’s fruit became coffee as the world knows it today.
However, this is just one of the stories which revolve around the history of coffee. Another tale which has been around for some time involves an Arabian who uses coffee beans to survive an exile and was discovered near the town of Mocha and thus we also refer to coffee as Mocha. As you will read on, there are more of these interesting coffee facts.
Coffee remained in Arabia for quite some time and was a secret which Arabians were not keen to share with outsiders. India was one of the first few countries outside Arabia to get a taste of coffee and then there was no holding back the growth of popularity of this drink.
There is a lot of history, which revolves around coffee and many legends which exist which help in creating a mystique for the beverage. Famous luminaries seem to have had some kind of brush with the drink and it is said that The Boston Tea Party, so well known for throwing away boxes of tea, considered coffee drinking a patriotic act!

Coffee facts tell us that countries such as Brazil have an entire economy dependent on the production of coffee and the United States is one of the largest coffee drinking nations in the world!
