Wake Up, Coffee's Brewing!

The history of coffee goes back at least to the 10th century, with a number of reports of legends surrounding its first use. The word "coffee" entered the English language in 1582 via Dutch "Koffie." The Ethopian ancestors of today's ethnic group were the first to have recognized the energizing effect of the native coffee plant.
Great CoffeeCommon coffee drinks:

Espresso - A strong black coffee made by forcing steam through dark roast aromatic coffee beans at high pressure in an espresso machine. A perfectly brewed espresso will have a thick, golden brown crema (foam) on the surface.  If the crema is good, the sugar you add will float on the surface for few few seconds before slowly sinking to the bottom.

Cappuccino - A true cappuccino is a combination of equal parts of espresso, steamed milk and milk froth. This luxurious drink, if made properly, can double as a dessert with its complex flavors and richness.

Americano - This is a single shot of espresso added to a cup of hot water. Many like to drink it as they would their regular brewed coffee, with milk and/ or sugar. Connoisseurs suggest keeping the milk to a minimum to get the most flavor from the espresso.
