Coffee history  

The cultivation of coffee began in Ethiopia in the Kaffa province. From here it came to Yemen via the port city of Mocka. Coffee drinking was spreading rapidly in the Islamic world and our word for coffee comes from the Arab qahwa "coffee, wine". In 1615, Venetian merchants brought home roasted coffee beans. The prayers were sold under praise of the medical qualities. The Dutch spread the coffee plants to the colonies in Southeast Asia, including Java in 1699 and Ceylon , and the coffee was then distributed to the Caribbean and around 1718 to Brazil , which is the largest coffee-growing nation today. The coffee is believed to have come to Denmark in 1665.
