History of Coffee
The history of coffee is as interesting as it is unusual; at various stages of its story it has been the chosen drink of slaves, Popes and Royalty, and its unparalled spread of popularity involves chance, political intrigue and the pursuit of wealth and power.
Timeline:
* 800BC -- Homer and many Arabian legends had told of a mysterious black and bitter beverage that with the mysterious power to stimulate.
* AD 575 -- The first recorded instances of the cultivation of the coffee plant (coffea arabica) occur in in its native Ethiopia.
* By the 15th century, we learn that the coffee trade has expanded into the rest of Arabia, probably via Sudanese slaves who did not drink coffee but ate the beans to sustain them on their long journeys.
Even in the 15th century, coffee was such a highly prized commodity that its production was carefully controlled to prevent plants being stolen for cultivation elsewhere. So genuine was this fear that only coffee beans were ever exported from Arabia: the outer cherry and husk were removed so that the beans could not germinate. The actual spread of coffee started illegally when an Arab named Baba Budan smuggled beans to some mountains near Mysore, India, and started a farm there.

However, upon tasting coffee, Pope Clement VIII proclaimed that God blessed and approved of coffee.
* 1650 --Once coffee had been 'baptised', it was free to spread throughout Catholic Europe. From Italy, coffee went to France, where it as introduced to Parisien society.
* 1652 -- the first coffee house was opened in London at the time of the Restoration, and soon became a focus for the cultural ferment in England. In fact, coffee houses become such a popular forum for the intelligensia that they were dubbed 'penny universities,' a penny being the price of a cup of coffee.
