“Coffee – the favorite drink of the civilized world.” – Thomas Jefferson

TRIBUTE: COMMEMORATION OF A FRIEND’S DAILY START BY DR PASCALE PAPALIA

Coffee has become an obsession with many people, a community get-together option for many others.

There is a legend that it was discovered by a goat herder in Ethiopia (National Coffee Association USA/History of Coffee) who saw increased energy from his goats after chewing the berries from a tree. The bean moved east through the Arabian peninsula and eventually to the established European kingdoms and the New World.

Brazil is the world’s biggest coffee producer and, according to a quiz question I got wrong in today’s The West Australian, second is Vietnam.

I have no skilful discernment of what is excellent coffee just as I do not have the necessary skills to be a wine connoisseur. However, I know what I like and I follow several rules which remain unspoken aloud for fear of offence in our precious world. Safe to say I can tell a bad one. I most often order Almond Cappuccino but only if they use Milk Lab.
