Pulling in through the drive-thru at Tim Horton’s and saw the sign: “Dark Roast blend, Our Premium Blend, 100% Arabica coffee”
Arabica?? Things that make you go hmmm… So I looked it up and this is what I found, indeed coffee was invented in the Muslim world, in Yemen…:
The first written record of coffee made from roasted coffee beans comes from Arab scholars, who wrote that it was useful in prolonging their working hours. The Arab innovation in Yemen of making a brew from roasted beans, spread first among the Egyptians and Turks, and later on found its way around the world.
