Coffee was discovered in the 9th century

According to experts, coffee was identified by the people of Ethiopia in the 9th century. A legend is quite popular about this, it is said that in a village situated on a hill, a shepherd saw his goats eating some berries present in the bushes, after which the goats got energized and started jumping. Out of curiosity, he tried eating some such berries himself and found that after some time, he started feeling refreshed and there was a significant reduction in the fatigue he experienced throughout the day. It is said that this incident gave coffee a big recognition.

When were you introduced to the people of Europe?

It is said that Suleman Aga, who was the Turkish ambassador, had introduced coffee to the royal court of Paris. After this, the people here became so crazy about it that by the year 1715, more than 2000 coffee houses had been opened in London alone.

Why were there attempts to ban it?

Many scholars used to call these coffee houses worse places than taverns. He believed that these were merely platforms for social and political debate. In the year 1675, Charles II even said that only dissidents and people who spread propaganda against the government were found in coffee houses. In such a situation, many efforts were made to ban them.

Drinking started in the 13th century

Drinking coffee is believed to have started in Yemen in the 13th century. First of all, Sufis and religious followers ground it and then boiled it in water and started consuming it. Drinking this provided instant energy to the body and kept the mind focused and calm during religious discussions. This drink became very popular to relieve physical fatigue and coffee houses started opening all over Arabia. It is said that between the 16th and 17th centuries, many Arab countries like Mecca, Egypt, and Turkey banned these coffee houses, but they opened at twice the speed at which they were closed.

Its seeds came to India by theft

Till the end of the 17th century, it was cultivated only in North Africa and Arab countries. Its traders endeavored to ensure that the formula for its cultivation should not go out of their country under any circumstances. This is the reason why outside Arab countries, coffee was seen only after boiling or roasting, due to which these seeds were not suitable for cultivation.

 Positive Takeaway

Experts say that around 1600, a Sufi pilgrim Baba Budan stole seven coffee seeds from Arabia and brought them to India with him. He was a resident of Chikkamagaluru district of Karnataka and it is said that he had brought these seeds to India tied around his waist. After this, he planted it in Mysore, South India, and for the first time, the people of India tasted coffee.
