The history of the discovery of coffee is full of rumors and legends, but it is known for certain that this product has been actively used for several centuries. Most researchers believe that the ancient inhabitants of the Jimma region (located in Ethiopia) became the discoverers of coffee. Ripe grains obtained from the tree, they roasted on fire and brewed a drink based on them.
The described theory also has many discrepancies, so the beginning of the 16th century is considered to be a more correct starting point. Then the coffee tree for making a drink began to be used in Yemeni monasteries. Then coffee spread throughout the Middle East, Asia and began to penetrate into other regions. People appreciated its ability to energize for several hours, as well as its bright aroma and rich taste.
Over time, they began to prepare various varieties of coffee and drinks based on it. Gourmet coffee was created, which was made exclusively from Arabica beans. They are grown only in the subtropics, at a sufficient height from sea level, where stable cool weather is maintained. This is the only way to make real coffee, striking in its flavor and aroma.
