How humanity got hooked on coffee - Jonathan Morris


Trace the history of coffee, from its first known origins to its rise in popularity due to trade routes and cultivation.

One day around 850 CE, a goatherd observed that his goats started acting abnormally after nibbling on some berries. The herder tried them himself, and soon enough, he was just as hyper. As the story goes, this was humanity’s first runin with coffee. So, how did coffee go from humble plant to one of the world's most consumed beverages? Jonathan Morris traces the history of this energizing elixir.
