National Coffee Day Facts
From the moment you open a fresh bag of coffee beans, the aroma beckons, percolating the senses. Even people who don’t drink coffee will admit they enjoy the fragrance of the world’s favorite roasted beans. Here’s a few interesting facts about coffee you should know:
- According to an expert cupper (a professional coffee taster), there are four components of a perfect cup: aroma, body, acidity, and flavor.
- The coffee bean affects the texture of the coffee, whether its silky, creamy, thick or thin on the tongue and throat. However, the darker the roast and how it is brewed will alter the feel of a coffee’s body, too.
- The region a coffee is grown determines its acidity. The higher the elevation the coffee grows, the higher the quality and the acidity.
- The earliest credible evidence of either coffee drinking or the knowledge of the coffee tree appears in the middle of the 15th century in the Sufi monasteries around Mokha in Yemen.
- Brazil produces more coffee in the world than any other country followed by Colombia.
- More than 50 countries around the world grow coffee, providing a variety of the world’s favorite black drink for connoisseurs to consume.
