Coffee – The eye opening love!

Came to read about coffee? Coffee is “LOVE.” 

From the classic Italian espresso to the creamy cappuccino, coffee has become an integral part of my daily routine. What exactly is coffee, and why do so many of us love it?

I have always been a tea lover since a kid(Oh yes as a kid I grew up drinking tea, you know “Parampara”). After joining work, I drank coffee once and the quantity increased daily and I finally started loving the coffee to a level where I could say I was literally cheating on the tea.

I travel a lot and everywhere I go, it amuses me to find different varieties of coffee which is a long list that cannot fit in this small write-up, so I’ll keep this coming into the next write-ups. 

I have been a coffee lover but I never thought I would be blogging about it one day. This idea stuck when I went to Vietnam in 2022. That’s when I got to know Vietnam is the 2nd largest producer of coffee after Brazil. I wish I could steal all types of coffee from there. But I did my best, I got as many possible coffee packets as possible along with their coffee filter. I was on a diet when I Vietnam but Vietnamese White Coffee was love and I might have been on the verge of becoming obese due to its obsession. They put condensed milk and coffee and believe me I don’t take sugar in my coffee. But coffee love is blind.

Now, let’s talk about the origin of coffee. After collecting data from different sources mainly all over the internet, I read somewhere that they originated in Ethiopia, where the coffee plant grew wild. A goat herder named Kaldi noticed that his goats became particularly energetic after eating the berries of a certain plant. He then tried the berries himself and he felt the same effect. And the news of the energizing effect of the berries spread, and in no time people began brewing coffee.

The first known evidence of coffee being brewed as a beverage came from the Arabian Peninsula in the 15th century. Then, coffee spread throughout the Middle East and into Europe, becoming a global commodity.

Coffee is made by roasting the seeds(coffee beans) of the coffee plant. It has caffeine, that can increase alertness and reduce fatigue. Other compounds in coffee, may also have health benefits. The amount of caffeine in coffee varies depending on the type of bean, the level of roast, and the method of brew. Also, just a tip – there are many secrets to coffee but the best one is when u mix a couple of different ones. It’s a blessing.

Coffee has become an integral part of many of our lives and many countries have adopted it into their culture.  In Italy, the espresso is a staple of daily life while in the US, coffee shops have become gathering places for friends and colleagues to meet and chat over it. The love signal is also mentioned sometimes as – “Do you wanna come up for a cup of coffee?” Say yes, coz coffee is gonna make you lucky!!

Coffee is a social experience, with people gathering in coffee shops to catch up with friends, have a business meeting or simply enjoy a moment of relaxation. There’s something about the atmosphere of a coffee shop, with its ambiance and the sound of steam from the espresso machine. I know a friend who bought a coffee machine to just get that aroma daily.

So now, I can rightly say coffee has health benefits, such as its potential to boost metabolism and may lower the risk of some diseases like Parkinson’s disease, and Type 2 diabetes. Liver disease and depression.

 I prefer all types of coffee from a strong espresso or a latte to there is no denying the power of coffee to give me the much-needed boost of energy and creativity.

Overall, the love for coffee is a personal experience, and it can bring different emotions to different people. But for me, coffee is more than just a drink – it’s a daily ritual, a social experience, a pleasure, and a love.

One of the reasons I love to drink coffee is because of the different coffee mugs I get coz of it. Yes, I love coffee mugs as gifts.
