If you believe that everything gets better with coffee, you may not be able to buy happiness but you can buy an iced frappuccino that comes pretty close, and that a yawn is nothing more than a scream for something caffeinated – you might be addicted to the rise and grind mantra of coffee lovers all over the world. But don’t worry you’re not alone! According to a 2014 article by Huffington Post, it is estimated that nearly 83% of adults in America drink some form of coffee. Morning coffee runs, full cups, mugs, tumblers, and thermoses have become one of the few things that unites us as human being regardless of race, religion, or politics. Yes, coffee makes the world go round. Go ahead and try to think of an office that lacks a coffee maker, we’ll wait.

Anything? We didn’t think so. In all honesty, the world’s addiction to coffee is nothing new. The earliest origin story of coffee dates back to the 4th-6th century in Ethiopia, according to the National Coffee Association USA, it was a goat herder first discovered the effects of coffee “it is said that Kaldi discovered coffee after noticing that his goats, upon eating berries from a certain tree, became so energetic that they did not want to sleep at night. Kaldi reported his findings to the abbot of the local monastery who made a drink with the berries and discovered that it kept him alert for the long hours of evening prayer. The abbot shared his discovery with the other monks at the monastery, and slowly knowledge of the energizing berries began to spread. As word moved east and coffee reached the Arabian peninsula, it began a journey which would spread its reputation across the globe.” From humble beginnings, coffee spread throughout the Arabian Peninsula and eventually to Europe and beyond. It has been estimated that by the mid 1600’s there were over 300 coffee houses in London alone. Brands like Starbucks, Maxwell House, and Keurig have made countless billions on our dependency on coffee. Today it would be a challenge to find somewhere coffee isn’t served.
