Evolution of Coffee
Coffee has been around since 800AD. In the 9th Century herders stumbled across the coffee plant when they noticed their goats were eating the red berries which took effect to which they started to jump and frolic around.
In the late 1800’s the industrial revolution relied on coffee because it gave the workers energy and allowed them to carry through there shift. As years past the American soldiers named the delicious tasty drink a ‘cup of joe’.
In 1969 on the day that the Apollo 11 launched the astronauts drank coffee before they landed on the moon, now astronauts have state-of-the-art vacuum sealed pouches and zero gravity cups so they can still enjoy their cup of coffee. They prepare their coffee in the ISSpresso which is a coffee machine adapted to work in the space station.
Also in 2015 Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti drank the first espresso in space.
In America some roasters made coffee by hand in the 1990’s by sourcing beans from smaller plantations owned by local farmers. They also supported the farms that didn’t endanger the environment, this evolved in to the ‘Specialty Coffee’.
As times went on business owners then bought them for their businesses so then their colleagues or customers can enjoy different varieties of warm drinks.
