Coffee Facts for this Week
- The word coffee comes from the Arabic word ‘qahwah’ which refers to a type of wine
- During the reign of Sultan Murad IV, drinking coffee was a major crime. Anyone caught drinking coffee received death sentences. The leaders of the Ottoman Empire would certainly not have been fans of Starbucks.
- The world’s first webcam appeared so that the owner of the coffee grinder could keep track of their employees.
- Coffee gives us sudden relief, just like a spa. Just imagine how much relaxation they will both give when together. For complete relaxation in Japan, there is such a coffee spa.
