A brief introduction to coffee

& Coffee Addicted

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, the seeds of coffee plants. The genus Coffea is originally from Africa, Madagascar, Comoros, Mauritius and India. Coffee was initially exported from Africa to other countries and plants are now cultivated in more than 70 countries, mostly in South America, Southeast Asia, India, and Africa. Coffee is probably the most popular drink in the world and it is likely to gain more countries and addicts in the near future. Scientific studies have shown that moderate coffee consumption can help you lose weight and even be beneficial for health, from inhibiting aging processes to lowering cancer risk.

The two most commonly grown coffee plants are arabica, and the strongest robusta. Coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. Dried coffee beans are roasted at various degrees, depending on the desired flavor. Roasted beans are ground and brewed with boiling water to produce the lovely coffee.
