Coffee is the most important wake-up call for close to 2.25 billion people around the world everyday. Today, on the occasion of International Coffee Day we trace back the origins of this black gold.
Legend has it coffee was discovered by an Ethiopian goat herder in the 9th Century A.D. A herder named Kaldi discovered that his goats became active and energized after feeding on a cherry-like fruit. Seeing this, people started to consume coffee fruit as a stimulant by chewing it or grounding it to a paste. Little did anyone know that this tiny berry will one day go on to become the second most important commodity after oil.
In more recent history, coffee started to gain immense popularity as a beverage around the 17th Century A.D. A unifying socio-economic factor in many countries coffee became a commodity uniting the working classes (proletariat) with the upper class (bourgeoise). The onset of the industrial revolution also created a huge momentum in the consumption of coffee especially in the United States.
As we move ahead in time, by the mid 1800s, John Arbuckle, a coffee pioneer discovered ways and means to package roasted ground coffee. While he established his own regional brand, others began to follow suit. In 1938, after seven years of research, another coffee pioneer, Max Mortgenthale launched is brand, the world famous Nescafé. The coffee industry saw an unprecedented boom in the mid to late 90s both with the advancement in technology and the internet boom.
And now as we stand in the present day, COFE App aspires to take this beverage that has become a key ingredient in many life changing conversations to another level.
