How the western world discovered coffee

Written by 

The Turks lay seige to Vienna in 1683. They were beaten back and amongst the supplies they were forced to abandon, were hundreds of sacks of Coffee!
The Viennese soon opened the first coffee house in the western world, to profit from this new exotic
commodity. The coffee house was mainly visited by aristocracy, as few could afford such and expensive luxury.


By the early 18th century coffee houses were opening in Stuttgard, Pennsylvania, Paris and spreading like wildfire through Europe and America.Such was the demand for this new commodity, the colonial powers established plantations in suitable areas of their colonies. The Dutch planted coffee in Indonesia, Suriname and Brazil. By the early 18th century the Dutch were producing enough coffee to supply the whole of Europe. The French and British were busily setting up their own supplies in Martinique, Brazil and Jamaica.


The humble coffee plant that originated in the "Kaffa" province of Ethiopia, spread through the Yemenese port of Mocha to Arabia had became a worldwide industry. With the birth of the Industrial age, coffee processing and transportation became simpler and cheaper. Coffee became affordable for the common man.
