Coffee Trivia

I remember one Philippine tv commercial of a couple were the wife is about to serve breakfast to his husband and the husband will only request for a coffee and would say "Coffee na lang Dear"...

Most people can leave without breakfast but not without coffee (Including myself) I always take my daily coffee rituals very seriously, without it i can't start a good day at work. For those coffee lovers in the world, here's a trivia for you....

  • The word coffee came from the meaning of the Arabic word gahwa, which means “wine” or as “excitement." 
  • Coffee is the third most popular drink in the world, next to water and tea. 
  • Coffee was a staple in ancient Arab times as well. So much so in fact that legal grounds for divorce was that the husband refused to make coffee for his wife.
  • Japan ranks Number 3 in the world for coffee consumption.
  • October 1st is the official Coffee Day in Japan.
  • For reducing wrinkles and improving their skin, the Japanese have been known to bathe in coffee grounds fermented with pineapple pulp.
  • Abraham Lincoln never had anything more than a cup of coffee for breakfast.
  • Black Coffee with no sugar contains from no to very little calories.
  • Coffee has been in use since about 900 A.D. It was first used as a stimulant, a wine, and as a medicine.
  • In England in the 1600s, coffee was used for medicinal purposes. The sick would receive treatments of a blend of coffee, heated butter, honey, and oil.
  • The “coffee break” in the American workplace came about during World War II. Employers found that their employees would work longer and harder if they were supplied with a coffee break during their shifts. U.S. studies shortly thereafter reported that 10,000 marriages a year were directly traceable to romances which began during these coffee breaks.
  • Franciscan friars brought the first coffee seeds to the Philippines in 1749. 
So while having a 2 days off this Friday and Saturday, I would probably enjoy my coffee while watching my downloaded movie. Happy weekend to everyone..
