It is believed that coffee originated in the high elevations of Ethiopia and was discovered by a goat herder when he noticed his goats were unable to sleep after eating the cherries from a certain tree. The goat herder shared the news with a local religious leader who made a drink from the fruit and found he was able to stay up longer in prayer. He shared his new drink with others and slowly coffee made its way across the continent to the Arabian Peninsula.
The Arabs quickly realized the marketability of coffee and became the first to not only cultivate the trees, but to begin trading in the coffee bean. Some believe the Arabs used coffee as a substitute to alcohol which the Koran forbade. Coffee houses quickly spread throughout the Arab world and beyond.
From long before modern society, tea has been surrounded in color and mystique. Enjoyed by royalty, commoners, politicians and pirates tea has survived the ages as one of the most sought after beverages in history. From the religious ceremonies of the Buddhist monks to the Boston Tea Party to the modern day discovery of anti-oxidants, tea has played a major role in the development of all classes of society. For more than 50 centuries tea has influenced ceremonies, meetings, superstition, religions, social orders, political upheavals, piracy and medicine.
It is believed that cocoa from which chocolate was created originated in the Amazonian area of Mesoamerica approximately 4,000 years ago. Ceramic vessels have been found with cocoa residues dating back as far as 1900 BC. Ancient manuscripts indicate the process to create the original drink included grinding the cocoa beans to a powder with the addition of maize or chili peppers. Sometimes the beans were used to make a type of porridge.
