Coffee is God’s Gift to Man

What drink perks you up in the morning, when you’re stressed or in the evening? Some people drink milk or create juices. Others, versus drinking, prepare light meals such as milk, cereals with fruits. On the other hand, most of the world’s population would have the ever-reliable coffee. This writer is proudly a heavy coffee drinker.

I am not really particular to what coffee I am taking. It can be your usual 3-in-1s bought in convenience stores or the handcrafted ones you buy in Cafés. When I get the chance to go out, I try to purchase coffee that I haven’t tasted. The good thing about it is that I learn a lot from every purchase.

From the Net

According to Wikipedia, “Coffee is a brewed beverage prepared from the roasted or baked seeds of several species of an evergreen shrub of the genusCoffea. The two most common sources of coffee beans are the highly regarded Coffea arabica, and the “robusta” form of the hardier Coffea canephora. The latter is resistant to the coffee leaf rust (Hemileia vastatrix), but has a more bitter taste. Coffee plants are cultivated in more than 70 countries, primarily in equatorial Latin AmericaSoutheast Asia, and Africa.”
