A Few Words About My Blog
It’s hard to imagine a world without coffee.
It’s come a long way from when humans first started drinking it and today coffee production is a gigantic industry, employing more than 20 million people worldwide. It is a valuable commodity, ranking second after oil in the international market trading.
Coffee lovers are all around the world with many famous people being known lovers of coffee. The first to be mentioned is Balzac, the 19th century French novelist and playwright. He was not just an amateur, but a real coffee lover, as he drank it very frequently and was known for preferring it strong.
Voltaire, another famous French writer, was also considered a coffee lover. He is known to have sometimes drank 50 cups a day! However, he lived to be 84 years old and so this coffee consumption clearly didn’t hurt him. Many told him that drinking coffee in such quantities is harmful, but he merely joked that if coffee is poison, then it is a slow and pleasant action.
Salvador Dali, Victor Hugo, Beethoven and many others loved the drink too. The list is endless. All of these different people are united by their enjoyment of coffee.
I myself used to not attach much importance to it. But I began to try better varieties and my life changed. Now I work as a barista and so coffee is my life. I have learned so much about coffee and I realized that I wanted to share it through a blog.
So, what is my blog really about?
Let’s take a look.
Around the 9th century, in what is today the country of Ethiopia, the young shepherd Kaldi saw his goats eating reddish berries from small bushes. Afterwards, they began to frolic with extraordinary energy.
The curious shepherd also decided to try the berries and leaves. He did not like the taste, but soon the young man noticed that fatigue had left him, and his mood improved considerably.
From the shepherd, missionary monks learned about the miraculous properties of unusual leaves and berries. They were able to make a recipe for decoction of the coffee helping return people to vigour and strength, banishing their blues and helping them not to fall asleep during long prayers.
Nowadays everyone is able to recognise a coffee bean and is familiar with the effects of coffee. However, not everyone will be able to distinguish Arabica beans from Robusta.
Relying on my own experience, I described the coffee beans types in my blog. Here you will find information on the different types of beans, how they vary in taste, as well as the ways to prepare the particular type of bean. It won’t be difficult for you with the help of my article!

But calm down! I have already given you the answers to all these questions and you can make a choice without difficulty.

For an interesting taste effect there is simple coffee recipe , as well as unique coffee drink recipes. The first ones includes the well-known cappuccino and espresso whilst the second one is a cold coffee recipe, with the addition of various ingredients.
