Coffee Beans Trivia

Interesting facts about coffee:

1. Coffee is made from coffee beans, the seed of the coffee plant. Even though they are seeds, they are referred to as 'beans' because of their resemblance. The fruits, coffee cherries or coffee berries, most commonly contain two stones with their flat sides together.

2. A coffee cherry or coffee berry that contains a single bean instead of two is called peaberry.

3. Coffee is one of the world's widely consumed beverages that is why coffee beans are considered as a major cash crop and an important export product for some countries.

4. Cultivation of the coffee bean originated in Ethiopia, in approximately 850 C.E. Farming of the coffee plant then spread to Arabia, where it was first mentioned in writing around 900 C.E. The Arabians guarded it carefully, but some plants were eventually smuggled out to the Dutch, who kept a few plants for gardens in the Netherlands. The Americas were first introduced to the plants around 1723. South America is now responsible for over 50% of the world's total coffee production.

5. Rogers Estate Coffees is the UK subsidiary of Rogers Family Company, one of the largest coffee roasters in the States. With a full UK operation, the coffee beans are now freshly roasted and packaged in the UK for ultimate freshness and quality.

They source the highest quality, shade grown Arabica coffee beans from small coffee estates as well as their own farms in Mexico and Central America. Their beans are roasted and packaged at their UK roasting facility for ultimate freshness and flavour.

Rogers Estate Coffees' coffee beans reflect the birthplace of Rogers Family Company. The San Francisco Bay range of premium gourmet coffee beans are top quality, environmentally and socially responsible and are your bridge to the World of Outstanding Coffee.

I thank Rogers Estate Coffees for this payperpost opportunity.
