I. The history of Coffee
The history of coffee dates back to 850 CE, and possibly earlier with a number of reports and legends surrounding its first use. It is more likely that it originated in the Kingdom of Sheba which was in Ethiopia and Yemen. The earliest sources is a story about an Ethiopian farmer who noticed his goats becoming energized after eating the coffee berries.
There is also evidence of either coffee drinking or knowledge of the coffee tree from the early 15th century, in the Sufi monasteries of Yemen, spreading soon to Mecca and Medina. By the 16th century, it had reached the rest of the Middle East, South India (Karnataka), Persia, Turkey, India, and northern Africa. Coffee then spread to the Balkans, Italy, and to the rest of Europe, as well as Southeast Asia despite the bans imposed during the 15th century by religious leaders in Mecca and Cairo, and later by the Catholic Church.

II. Coffea Arabica and coffea Robusta.
The two most well-known coffee plants are coffea Arabica and coffea Robusta, supply almost all of the world’s consumption. Coffea Arabica accounts for 75% of the world’s coffee today; it is the world’s standard coffee. Coffea Robusta, its own top 25% of beans are considered as luxurious coffee.
Arabica is considered a milder, more-flavourful and aromatic brew than Robusta, the main variety of coffea Robusta (C. canephora). The flatter and more-elongated Arabica bean is more widespread than Robusta but more delicate and vulnerable to pests, requiring a cool subtropical climate; it must grow at higher elevations (2,000–6,500 feet [600–2,000 metres]) and requires a lot of moisture, sun, and shade. Latin America, eastern Africa, Asia, and Arabia are leading producers of Arabica coffee. The rounder, more-convex Robusta bean, as its name suggests, is heartier and can grow at lower altitudes (from sea level to 2,000 feet). Its own top 25% of beans are considered as luxurious coffee.
III. Vietnamese coffee. The cultural traditions and customs, it’s about so much more!

Like many other fruits, coffee cherries grow on trees. The soil, climate, altitude, and surrounding plants that a coffee tree is exposed to during growth affects the flavor of the beans it produces.
