World History of Coffee

All About Coffee
World History of Coffee Coffee was discovered and first harvested in Ethiopia sometime during the eleventh century. It was soon established as an important trading commodity and quickly spread across the Arabian Peninsula, eventually arriving in Yemen, whose geography offered the ideal climate and soil conditions for the cultivation of bountiful coffee harvests, in the fourteenth century.

Common Coffee Myths—Busted

Myth #1: Coffee Dehydrates You

Everyone knows that coffee contains caffeine (unless it’s decaffeinated, of course), and it’s also common knowledge that caffeine is a diuretic—a substance that encourages urination and thus lowers the amount of fluid (mostly water) in your body. So, coffee is dehydrating, right?

A 2003 study concluded that consuming moderate amounts of coffee or tea (as part of a “normal lifestyle”) does not lead to any significant fluid imbalance, because most regular drinkers of caffeinated beverages develop “a profound tolerance” to the diuretic effects of the drug. Moreover, coffee and tea are mostly water, so drinkers are likely replacing most of the fluids they may lose.

Invented in 2013 by Nate Armbrust, a food scientist from Portland, OR, nitro borrows from the beer brewing process by adding tiny nitrogen bubbles to the brew.
