We all like a good cup of coffee but how much do you know about it?
- Coffee grows on trees which can grow up to 30ft tall but are cultivated to be around 10ft for easy picking!
- Coffee is the second most traded commodity on earth
- The term 'Americano' comes from American GI's in World War 2 who would order espresso with water to dilute the strong flavour!
- In 1675, the King of England supposedly banned coffee houses, claiming they were places people met to conspire against him...
- Legend has it Ethiopian shepherds first noticed the effects of caffeine when they saw their goats appearing to become frisky and "dance" after eating coffee berries!
Needing a caffeine fix after that?
Head to Maggie's for a cup of Grumpy Mule coffee, any way you like it!
