DescriptionCoffee is a brewed beverage with a distinct aroma and flavor prepared from the roasted seeds of the Coffea plant. The consumption of coffee in Europe was initially based on the traditional Ottoman preparation of the drink, by bringing to boil the mixture of coffee and water together, sometimes by adding sugar. Wild coffee's energizing effect was likely first discovered in Kaffa the northeast region of Ethiopia. Coffee cultivation first took place in southern Arabia. the earliest credible evidence of coffee-drinking appears in the middle of the 15th century in the Sufi shrines of Yemen. Coffee berries, which contain the coffee seeds, are produced by several species of small evergreen bush of the genus Coffea. The two most commonly grown are also the most highly regarded Coffea arabica, and the 'robusta' form of the hardier Coffea canephora. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world.
